    VLC on W10 VM on Linux Hosts (Workstation 12.1 - Fixed

    Hi there.

    on some Linux Hosts using Vmware workstation / Player VLC doesn't work properly on a Windows 10 VM - you don't get any dropdowns from the menu.

    A reasonable fix for this (apart from checking that you have any Video drivers installed for your Host system) is to install the MESA package (your package installer should get all dependencies too).

    This fixes the problem and a few other niggedly screen properties.

    (By the way for those using distros with RPM packages a great graphical GUI for package installing is YUMEX).
