I have made no progress.  VLC works fine when I call it from the main menu
but then I have to manually select the file from a file manager menu. The
most difficult thing is getting the mouse off of the myth background and
onto the small VLC program.  It was suggested that I uninstall pulse audio
but it is not installed.  I have no idea.  I am basically living with it.
 The built in player will play most things and when it won't, I open VLC
from the main menu.  By main menu, I mean I added a button on the main menu
to open VLC.

Let me know if you end up solving it.
