Hi Chris,

I would advice migrating the information posted in this thread to the
issue tracker as bug-fixes are better discussed there. Please see the
below link.

 - http://trac.videolan.org/vlc/

You can pretty much just *copy+paste* the information already written,
the description of the problem is very detailed - thank you!

Best Regards,\

If you are having trouble creating an account/and or creating the
ticket due to the issue-tracker having a *blocklist* (in terms of IPs)
that sadly contains a lot *false-positives*; please let me know (and I
will create the ticket for you).
