Q1: VLC Crash on Windows
Answer : Try to increase the verbosity level (either in the preferences or with a
-vv command line option) and look at the debug messages (in the terminal or in the Messages window).
Q2: Can I take a screenshots?
Yes, you can take a screenshot on VLC Media. To take a snapshot of the video displayed by VLC, you just need to press the pre-defined snapshot hotkey:
- Windows/Linux/Unix: Ctrl + Alt + S
- Mac OS X: Command + Alt + S
To change it, go to Preferences → Interface → Hotkeys settings, check Advanced options, and set Take video snapshot. You can also take a snapshot via the menu Video → Snapshot. To change the snapshot format or directory, go to Preferences → Video.
Q3: VLC doesn’t display all subtitles
Answer: If VLC has autodetected your subtitles file, or if you opened it manually, but VLC only displays some subtitles from time to time, you will need to change the subtitles file encoding.
Go to Preferences → Input / Codecs → Other codecs → Subtitles, and set Subtitle text encoding to the right one.
Go to Preferences → Video → Output modules, and set Video output module to something different, like DirectX video output. Be sure you have advanced options enabled to be able to access this option.
Also, you might need to disable the “YUV -> RGB” checkbox in DirectX section of Preferences → Video → Output modules.
