    Looking for a way to fix my (VLC Media Player) or find a better one.

    What I mean by kicking it up I mean there are a few things it has been doing from time to time that kind of ticks me off. For example when I open my vlc media player by clicking on a file icon for a video any kind of video it will sometimes open and say it can't play something about 3d and then it shuts down. And sometimes it also plays kind of choppy for a few seconds and if I restart the same video even a few second later it will play fine then.

    I don't know why it dose this is there a trick to fixing this problem.

    Or is there another good player to use. I sometimes have .flv files I need to play but can always convert them to .mp4.

    You can always try to reinstall VLC. Just make sure you do a thorough uninstall.
