[ubuntu] Media players crashing "Bus Error (core dumped)"

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I have been using Ubuntu for years and the current 12.04 since it was released, never had a problem like this. Not sure when it started but I can't play any video files at the moment, my media players just crash. VLC Doesn't start at all. If I run it from terminal I get: Code: VLC media player 2.0.8 Twoflower (revision 2.0.8a-0-g68cf50b) Bus error (core dumped) Totem Starts fine, can play mp3 files. Whenever I try to open a video file, it crashes. When ran from terminal: Code: (totem:22112): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: Read/writable property 'object' on class 'ZeitgeistDpPlugin' (Hardware)
