Hello.
I was using DisplayFusion v 3.2.0 some days without problem. Now I am trying v 3.3.0 and I have problem with VLC. When I watching VLC on fullscreen (on second monitor) few minutes and want exit from fullscreen it freeze and crash or just right click on fullscreen and VLC crash.
In VLC (v 1.7.7) dump i found:
......

c0000005 at 63c83e92
......
It happend every time after some minutes. V 3.2.0 is ok.
Where is the problem ?

Sure its cause by displayfusion. 10 days with 3.2.0 without crash 1 day with 3.3.0 maybe 10 crashes. Now 2 days back on 3.2.0 and no crash.

Very strange, I'll see what I can do for the upcoming Beta 2.

I haven't been able to reproduce this behaviour yet with VLC 1.1.7 and DisplayFusion 3.3.0.101 (Beta 1). Can you try a few things for me (one at a time) to see which DF feature is causing the issue:
- Disable the multi-monitor taskbar
- Disable TitleBar Buttons
- Disable Window Location
- Disable the global application hooks (using the Advanced Settings window)

Hopefully figuring out which feature is causing the issue will help narrow down the bug-search. Thanks!

Hello
The error appears after 20-25 mins of watching local streams on VLC and when right click on fullscreen it crash.(no early and this is strange ).
First I deactivated the Window Location - it crash. Then I deactivated the multi-monitor taskbar. It again crash. But when I deactivated TitleBar Buttons it dont crash for some hours. Now I will try the beta 2 and I will see.

Thx for help and your time

Edit:
beta 2 = same. After disabled TitleBar Button function or add VLC to compatibility table and disable TitleBar Button on this app everything is OK.

Hello.
I will be very grateful if you try improve TitleBar Button Compatibility for VLC (1.1.7) and add it to beta3. :angel:

I have also disabled titlebar buttons for VLC. Will let you know if this stops the crashes on my side.

VLC repeatedly asks to send a bug-report, which I sent, however I have not been able to see the bugreport and have not had any response whatsoever.

Can confirm that disabling the titlebar buttons for VLC in compability settings fixes the problem.

When you disable the TitleBar Buttons, are you still using the Taskbar feature? Have you disabled the global application hooks?

I have tried all combinations disabling functions:
- Disable the multi-monitor taskbar - CRASH
- Disable Window Location - CRASH
- Disable the global application hooks (using the Advanced Settings window) - CRASH
- these all disabled - CRASH

Only one thing that helped is:
- Disable TitleBar Buttons function or just add VLC to compatibility tab where is disabled titebar button only for VLC.
(other functions is enabled)

I think I've found and fixed the issue. Can you download the new Beta 6 from here and let me know if it works now:
