Might be through, but if I was to use GTK application, I wouldn't stick to TDE for so long. You'll have to debug - find out where and why it fails. From what you are writing it could be some old library on the way or some old configuration saved around. Did you try with another fresh user (just create one, log in and run VLC). You will find out if it has to do with user configuration My choice is mplayer with kplayer as frontend BTW. The only problem I have from time to time is with commercial DVDs.
