Re: NVDA Crashing when using VLC Media Player

Ah I hadn't seen this message when I replied just before.  So please take my earlier points as things to try if you DO run into trouble with anything in future :)

Re the add-on, it looks like it is maintained by Javi Dominguez.  It would be worth reaching out to Javi with the issue. From the compatibility page (where I can see the add-on should have been updated for 2022.1): Contact: Javi Dominguez fjavids@...

Kind regards

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.
