VLC is crashing when starting up a game

When you have a doublescreen setup and you want to use VLC to watch video’s or play music while you game it will crash.

There is a solution for this issue;

Steps: Open VLC and go to preferences -> go to video -> choose ‘all’ at the bottom and search for Overlay video output in the list under ‘video’ and turn it off. Then go back to simple preferences and go to video. Make sure accelerated video output(overlay) is not checked. Then turn off hardware YUV>RGB. And finally change your output to OpenGL.
