Try `vlc --help' for more information.
VLC initialization failed

Solution :
The "--http-charset" and "--wx-systray" options should be removed from the /usr/bin/vlc-fbx script.

I don't agree with solution, removing "--http-charset" and "--wx-systray" work to luanch VLC but don't stream content.

Changed in freeplayer:
status: New → Confirmed

I am using Intrepid and I have the same trouble :
VLC initialization failed. . .
It was working with Hardy, it's a regression.
Could you fix it please ?


I have the same problem in jaunty.

With vlc 1.0.2 goldeneye (Jaunty), the proposed solution (remove --wx-systray....) works for me (and videos are streamed correctly)
