I notice when I slide a commercially bought music CD in and launch VLC Media Player that unlike MP3 or .wav files it doesn't pay the tracks. I click on Play, and Open File and nothing seems to make any of the tracks on the several CDs I've tried play.
Also, VLC Media Player is very inconsistent in playing downloaded video downloaded with Ant. Media.
It's not content from hulu or such sites. It sits there like the music CDs and just never plays no matter what I click on in VLC Media Player.
You need to select Open Disk, not Open File to play CDs. I don't know what Ant. Media is, so I can't speak to that.
Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
It has worked for me.
Thank you very much sir!
