It seems to be a recent issue (as of the latest VLC update maybe?). But when I try to play flash vids in VLC now, it freezes. Force Quitting doesnt work. The only way to get VLC back (to my limited knowledge) is to restart the Macbook.

Anyone see this happening?

i rule.

VLC is buggy on OS X, and has been for some time now. There is a replacement under heavy development called Lunettes that, while still lacking in a lot of features, is MUCH more stable than VLC has been in a long times. Give that a whirl.


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
