Good evening, 1)weirdchylde@… 2)Windows 7 Premium 64-bit 3)VLC 2.0.1 freshly installed 4)Acer a0722-0473, sorry, couldn't find out what audio hardware I have 5)wanting to plug in my headphones to listen as my parents are listening to a loud tv in the same room, however I find that the sound still comes out of the speakers even when my headphones are plugged in. It's supposed to switch automatically. Restarting VLC fixes the issue, however when I unplug my headphones, the same error occurs, where it will not switch back to speakers. I'm forced to restart VLC again. 6) Yes, I can reproduce the program numerous ways, with different file types. 7)I was watching an .avi version of Merlin, a BBC series. This error happens with numerous videos as well as audio only files, it does not make a difference.
