VLC crashes pretty often. For me it usually crashes jumping forward or back, like with the skip ahead 60 seconds command. Then when it reopens, it brings up a crash dialog that you have to dismiss. It's annoying. I looked through the many preferences, and googled, and couldn't find any known way to disable it.
I tried solving this myself and found a simple solution that works!
On Mac, open /Users/YOU/Library/Preferences/org.videolan.vlc.plist
Find the field LatestCrashReportYear and change it to the future like 2020. Save. You're done.
Presumably there's something equivalent on Windows.
I don't know exactly why this works, I assume it's trying not to send out of date crash reports, only a new one.
