vlc media player not working

Peter Jones-20
Good morning,

Sorry to trouble you but i need some expert advice. I have just installed a vlc media player and when i go to my files to play a movie and it says "play with vlc media player", nothing appears on the screen.I have a Fujitsu amilo 2510 laptop with windows home premium installed. I am 55 years old so my computer knowledge is quite limited, so if you can help me would you please do it in plain English and not technical jargon, because i would not understand it.

Thank you very much for your time in this matter and have a good week.


Kindest regards.

Pete Jones

Hello Pete,

Try starting the VLC player and browsing to your file rather than
using the windows explorer to find the file you wish to play with VLC.

* Start VLC
* click "File" in the menu bar
* select "Open File"
* click the "Browse..." button
* Select the movie file using the file browser
* click the "Open" button
* Click the "OK" button
* If the video does not begin playing immediately, click the right
  arrow play button

It might help us to know which OS you have installed and what type of
movie file you are attempting to play.  Two operating systems with the
name "Home Premium" are "Windows XP" and "Windows Vista."  Is your
system running one of these?

Can you tell us what the filename extension is for the movie you are
attempting to play?  .mov?  .avi?  .wmv?  .mpg?  .mp4?

Thanks in advance,

C.J.
