Wheezy: VLC player weirdness


For some reason VLC player refuses to play video files. It starts up, shows the first frame of the video but doesn't play it further. What's strange, KDE DragonPlayer plays the same videos fine and I believe DragonPlayer relies on VLC libraries to play videos.

Any ideas? Thanks
