To explain further: you could revert to earlier versions of the effected 
software, but that could be a messy and frustrating process that will 
not ultimately get you anywhere.
If VLC or whatever works fine, then use that; but upgrade your usual 
software as new versions become available. Hopefully this bug will not 
last long!

Welcome to LAU! Best wishes, G.
