Problems with VLC media player

I'm unsure if this is displayfusion's fault or VLC's, but I plan to post it on both forums.
What I do know is that it must be something conflicting between the two, seeing as I used to use VLC before displayfusion and never had a problem.
The problem is two parts-
The first problem: Occasionally I will be watching something through VLC. Then the video ends. I then go to open the next video, and it opens, but on the opposite screen as the VLC I was just watching. It will then open in ASCII text mode, where the video is displayed through ASCII. I have no idea why this happens. It happens randomly. Then when I close it, it closes all open VLC processes running.
Problem two: Similar to the first, I'll be watching VLC on my external monitor. A video will end. I will then go to open the next video, but then it just does nothing for 10 seconds and vlc closes.

In both predicaments, I'm watching in full screen. I can't find any settings in VLC for dual monitors, so I'm wondering if it has anything to do with displayfusion. Anyone else ever run into a problem like this or know how to solve it?
I'm running Windows 7 x64bit and displayfusion 3.4.0
Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

I've never run into any issues running VLC fullscreen with DisplayFusion, but one thing you can try is to create a Compatibility rule for VLC that that disables the Application Hooks and the TitleBar Buttons. A couple of customers in the past have reported that this fixed up some compatibility issues they were having with VLC.

More info on how to create a Compatibility rule in DisplayFusion can be found here:

If you get a chance to try it out, please let me know how that works out.
