I am using VLC 2.0.7 and 2.0.8 on Windows XP Pro SP3.

I delete the file "vlcrc" so VLC starts with default values.

Example, "Planet of the apes", DVD PAL, two disc set.


VLC, Open media, Disc, DVD, disc device


Click [Play] : I hear a weird continous dvd player buzz', for about 60 seconds, before the movie plays.

On the same pc using windows media player : movie play starts immediately.

What is doing VLC media player ?

Is there any option to fix this ?
