The "external player selection" issue is fixed in build 385.

Thanks for reporting it

Wow. I never noticed. Thanks for letting me know.

I will fix the file selection in the next build.

Glad you resolved the issue :-)

I figured it out. This had nothing to do with any updates, clearly. 

For some reason, when I click on the VLC folder using the folder browser on the right, the target defaults to one folder up, so instead of C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC, I kept landing on C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\. And when I completed the path manually by adding "vlc.exe" (because you can't choose a file with the browser, only a folder), I ended up with the wrong path.

Thank you for your help and I hope I didn't waste too much of your time! :)

Hi again. I did check "use external player". When I enter the path to vlc.exe (in the media player classic location box, which I believe is the only viable one) and I try double-click on a video, I get an error message that reads "External media player not defined". 

Am I doing something wrong?

Hi again.

I am away from my PC, but there is an option to enter the path of the external player. Just point it to vlc.exe on your disk. Then there is a checkbox I think outside of options that says "use external player"

Hi. Thank you for the quick reply!

I'm sorry that I wasn't clear with previous post. I can generate frames alright. And I can also open a video by double-clicking it.

What I can no longer do since a couple of updates ago is use my video player of choice, which is VLC. There is a check box on the Video Manager landing window that allows you to select an external player, which I have checked. But in the settings, the option to select VLC is grayed out (and if I remember correctly, there used to be an option to enter the VLC folder path, which isn't there anymore). So I can only open videos with the internal video player, which unfortunately just doesn't have all the functionality that I need.

I sadly can't be precise about when this changed, but I'm fairly confident that it was about a couple of updates ago.

I'm using Win10, ver 1803, 64 bit.

Hi Ron,

Please clarify this for me. 

a) You can no longer generate video frames.


b) you cannot open a video by double clicking.

Also please provide Windows version and whether it is 32 or 64 bit

Hey there,

I really like this program, but I haven't been able to use it since you removed the ability to open files on VLC directly from the Video Manager. Is there a legacy build repository somewhere where I can download an older version?
