Re: NVDA Crashing when using VLC Media Player

Hi all,


I think I tracked down the problem to the VLC nvda-addon.  If I disable it, then NVDA works as it should.  As soon as I enable the addon, then the problem seems to raise its head.

Subject: [nvda] NVDA Crashing when using VLC Media Player


Hi all,


As the subject indicates, NVDA crashes when opening a media file in VLC portable.


Steps to reproduce:

  1. Launch VLC;
  2. Press <ctrl+o> to bring up the open files dialog;
  3. NVDA crashes;
  4. Bringing up narrator works without any issue.
  5. Press <ctrl+alt+n> launches NVDA once more.
  6. If you place focus back into the open dialog, NVDA crashes once more.


I have run Narrator and it has no problems.


Expected results:

  1. NVDA should read the open dialog without any crashing.
