VLC: fix black screen when playing videos

Lately I had to face a weird problem on my Xubuntu 13.04 and VLC 2.0.9.

At first I could watch a video but at the next play VLC used to show a black screen.

To fix it: go to Tools -> Preferences -> Video. At the Output, choose “X11 video output (XCB)” from the dropdown list.

If it doesn’t work, untick the option “Accelerated video output (Overlay)”.
