    For about a month now I have been having sound problems. When I play a video using VLC, not always, but regularly, the sound stops after 30, 60 minutes, the video goes on. I can switch VLC off, and on again, and restart the movie at the same place, and it will play the same part of the video normally, with the sound.
    When I use Gom or WM-Classic, every video works fine, nothing ever stops.

    I uninstalled VLC and re-installed it, trying four different versions. Same problem.
    I asked on VLC forum, no one else has heard of the problem.

    The only obvious difference I can find, is that the VLC installation is about three times the size of the windows player...

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    For those with a similar problem, there are several other the reports of the problem. MS has acknowledged that the problem is caused by an update in September and will be fixed in future updates....

    Try again with the October updates. GDI bug should be fixed.

    It has NOT been fixed... why am I not really surprised?

    After going back to 2.2.8 it works once again... :)

    They probably will not... helps forcing some people to change to Win10.
    Writing repair code would cost money, using Win10 brings money! We are talking about Microsoft here.....
