Recent Windows patch breaks VLC DVD playback
Ok Iím still trying to narrow this issue down but it appears that one of last weeks XP patches breaks VLC DVD playback. It only came to light this week when so many people reported the issue due to them plating endless DVD's to the kids during the last week. I thought it was the disk to start with as it doesn't do it on all DVD's.
I finally found that Mr Bean consistently will not play, you put the disk in and receive a multi colour blocky screen. I tried reinstalling VLC and tried the latest version but nothing worked, at this point the teacher said that it had been odd since last week. I uninstalled KB973346, KB961371 and KB971633. When I rebooted VLC played the DVD ok.
I'll try to narrow it down to one patch and post back but I thought the info might help other VLC users.
