Fix VLC Media Player Not Displaying Video in Ubuntu

I faced an issue in Ubuntu that My VLC Media Player is not displaying the video but a blank screen is displayed with the audio. I followed the below steps to sort out the issue:

 

  1. Go to ToolsPreferencesVideo
  2. Remove the tick for Accelerated video output (Overlay)
  3. Try and play the movie again, you should now see output.

 

                                       Or

  1. Go to ToolsPreferences → Video
  2. Change Output to X11 Video output
