How to stop Automatic Direct3D Output
  

From last two month I am using windows 7 of 32-bit operating system and currently I have just updated from 1.0.3 to 1.0.5. Actually in this I mean on my old version in that if I clicked two times on the any of video file it is working properly but in the newer version when I clicked on any of the video file it is automatically switches toward a Direct 3D output. And in that I am also not able to look to obtain the control buttons on the screen. Please anybody tell me how to fix this problem. And do not suggest me to re install the old version.

Re: How to stop Automatic Direct3D Output

Some days back I have solved the same problem which is also posted by some of the user. Actually he was also getting the same problem. So regarding this I got a perfect answer from one of the forum site. But the problem is that he was getting all these on the windows XP operating system. You also check or just give the try I think it will also help you in your case also. You just remove the %appdata%\vlc folder.

Re: How to stop Automatic Direct3D Output

I know this that some of them will not able to get that folder very soon. But I think in last you will get that. But do not worry I know how to solve this issue also. So I think you just try this in finally you will get that. You just open the windows Explorer and go to run and there you just type %appdata%\vlc there and press Enter. And finally you will get that.

Re: How to stop Automatic Direct3D Output

Here, I am also facing the same issue. And regarding this I have searched a lot also but not able to get the correct or you can say that perfect solution. But when I came to this forum site then I have seen some of the replies which is given by Eric. So finally I think it will solve my issue. So I have decided to do that but I just want to inform you that I am also using the windows XP and I have tried your solution but it does not make any of the big difference. If you have any other solution for this question then please tries to post it as soon as it is possible for you.

Re: How to stop Automatic Direct3D Output

Hey do not worry regarding this because I have got the solution of this. Because like you I have also faced this issue but around two months ago. At that time I have searched a lot regarding this and finally after the two hours of searching I got the solution of this from one of the forum site. Actually there is no any vlc.exe which is running in the background at the time when you try to remove the folder.

And after this you just select “All” for the “Show setting”. And doing all these you just go to the video and then output modules and in that you just select example direct video from the drop down list. And there you just press save and restart VLC. And after doing all these open up VLC one more time and this time it should playback videos by using that output module.

This is what I have been looking for thank you. Couple of thing I would like to point out (and be more specific) is that you, to get to the right area, you go: Ctrl+P (to get into the preferences) then in the bottom left corner there is a show settings bit-you change that to "All". Then in the left hand area there should be: Advanced, Audio, Input/Codecs, Interface, Playlist, Stream output and then Video. Click on the plus next to the Video and this should drop down into Filters, Output modules and Subtitles/OSD. Then you click on output modules and the screen to the right of it should show "Choose your preferred video output and configure it here" and underneath it it should have something like this: Video output module: then on the other side of the screen is a drop down menu: Open that and it should show: Default, YUV video output, Windows GDI video output, Video memory output, Dummy video output, Statistics video output, OpenGL video output, DirectX Video output, Direct 3D video output, 2D video output and Color ASCII art video output. It is normally set to "Default" But you need to set it to "OpenGL". Then just restart VLC and there we go - the problem is fixed.
