Hi All,
I have recently installed Vector 6 (not the live version) and have a problem with VLC when trying to listen to on-line radio.

I select VLC (the default by the way) to play the music, but it merely flashes on the screen for a split second and then at the bottom of the screen a little window pops up telling me the download is complete.

VLC is no where to be found; it appears to turn itself on and off in an instant.

I would greatly appreciate your help in resolving this matter.

I did look through these forums but did not find a solution to this problem.

I even uninstalled and reinstalled VLC.

By the way, here is a link to the radio station that I am trying to listen to:

I rebooted and logged in this time as user instead of root and now VLC works.
Odd...

Try launching vlc from a terminal and see if it gives errors.
