    VLC Player keeps crashing after sound card installation

    I have a PC running in 64 bit version Windows 7. I recently installed Asus Xonar D2X gaming soundcard. After installing all the drivers, I played an HD video with VLC, but the player crashed. I tried again and again but the player keeps crashing. I even reinstalled it and still the problem persists. This is the latest VLC version and my PC has a powerful configuration capable of playing games in HD. What could be the problem as my sound card works fine?

    Hello there !!!

    crashing of the vlc is normal.
    but it crashes after the installation is seems to be the issue to think upon. ok??

    but if it get crash repeatedly than it might have got any software related issue.
    since vlc has too many bugs still in it.
    and the are still needed to rectified.

    so you can do one thing,it is that you just update your vlc.
    and then see it will start working fine right from then.

    hope i am clear to you.
    thanks for posting in EALP.

    Hello,

    Well, VLC has a history of crashing and it should be treated as normal event. You have tried several times
    to re-install the software to your PC and even after that VLC crashes. The best solution would be to download
    similar software from the internet and install to your PC to find out wheather any hardware issue involves in
    it. You should install any one of the following softwares,

    1. GOM Player.
    2. KM Player.

    Bye,

    Re: VLC Player keeps crashing after sound card installation

    What you are experiencing relating VLC player after Installing Graphic Card Driver, is due to infringement between the two program,
    VLC Player and The Graphics Card Driver, both of which , due to programming technique uses similar channel of Data Bus in Mainboard circuit.

    When reinstalling is not working, you possibly need not worry about that any more, was it a clean install of VLC, means did
    You install after uninstalling the previous installation. If not first uninstall VLC Player first, then download latest VLC player and clean install it.

    You may consider other Media Players too, like GOM Player, KM Player, REAL Player, WIN AMP etc. They are also good media players.
