    Windows 8


    The Graphic Card was 'ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5000 Series'.
    This solution also fixed the App crashing.

    Ah, good! We just needed the newest Driver then. AMD has taken over ATI, so it's all AMD now.

    If the drivers are OK, you may have a setting clicked in VLC that disables the Video, There are bunches of Advanced Settings in that app, if you chose the wrong kind of Video Output, it will either play on your Desktop, Play in a Windows OUtside of the VLC Window, or on a 2nd Display if you have one.

    Try going into the Options/Settings in every Video Player program you use, set everything to Default.

    If this is an Issue with the Xbox Tile App (Videos), the Content may have an unsupported Codec.
