Someone help me out with this error message that I am getting with VLC media player. 2.0.1 is the recent update I made in this media player but looks like the update has some bug or some problem in it. After the update whenever I tried opening the player I ended up getting the above mentioned error which says could not open the encoder”. The error is actually comes along with “Streaming/Transcoding failed” message and this message always appears in a different red color font followed with the above mentioned message. Trust me; I did nothing during or after the update. The error starts automatically without any reason.
Generally I have a habit of opening the player both manually and with the help of the command line. Most probably I used to go for opening it at the startup but after I fell into the error I preferred to go for starting the player manually. However even manual starting doesn’t seem to be doing any trick. I get the same error with no difference. Sometimes VLC even crashes along with the message.
