VLC media player unable to run video, after using the command sudi apt install -y vlc && sudo apt install -f.

Only the audio is available, but the picture is unmoved.

I have given the above command keeping internet connection activated. What to do now?

If the video is not responding in VLC, could you please try playing some other video content? Maybe, a youtube video through konsole(terminal):

  • vlc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4C82eyhwgU

If that doesn't work, then please try re-installing the vlc from the konsole(terminal):

  • sudo apt purge -y vlc
  • sudo apt install -y vlc

Let me know if it solves your problem.

  • sudo apt purge -y vlc
  • sudo apt autoremove
  • sudo apt install -y vlc
VLC sometimes couldn't handle few video codecs, in that case, I suggest you can install an alternate player (smplayer).
  • sudo apt install -y smplayer

The problem of video player is solved by installing SMPlayer, instead of VLC.
Thanks to Srikant for solving it through remote access.
