similar issue

Crashes immediately with every media type on every video codec (this includes network streams) or output driver. No errors show on crash or when loading and in the LUA console. Ill be able to debug it soon and post the results here. :/

Bug found.

So, I ran VLC portable through my debugger (OllyDBG) and found that VLC tries to access memory from location x00000000 which is nonexistent. Here is the debug log: http://pastebin.com/cTzzK4Q4

I found that I can keep VLC from crashing by refusing to pass the exception to VLC with the debugger (basically making VLC think nothing went wrong).

Does it happen locally?

Does the same thing happen on a local copy as well?

It happens locally also however..

Not 'every media type on every video codec' cause problems.
Only ogg,flv, and avi are effected as far as I can tell.

Base app bug

If it happens locally as well, this is a bug with the base app and should be reported to the app's developers.
