Greetings,

Depending on what file format it is that you're trying to play, you should be able to install the appropriate codec(s) to enable playback in Windows Media Player (I've been doing this myself for years and never had need of any other players for even the most obscure formats thanks to packs such as the K-Lite Codec Pack, though there are other options/packs available depending on your needs).

That said, version 3.0.6, the latest build of VLC Player can be downloaded directly from here.  You might try downloading and installing it directly rather than trying to upgrade through the app as that may resolve the issue (plus, being on such an outdated version, it's very likely that compatibility issues may arise as build 2.0.7 is nearly 6 years old at this point, having been released in June of 2013).

I'd definitely suggest trying a manual upgrade first to see if that resolves the issue, though I'm sure the Devs/QA team will take a look at the logs you provided in case there is some issue in Malwarebytes that needs to be fixed (the most likely culprit would be Exploit Protection since VLC is among its shielded applications).

if I am not mistaken , the video file format is FLV alongside with the other video’s files formats that’s can not be played with the Windows-Media player and even with others and most-video players software too . for the K-lite Code Pack . I have just download it and when I run it , windows it says from an Unknown publisher . so I wonder if it safe to use it ?

I’ll check for it later time . the old version of the VLC Media player.exe.file was on my other old USB flash drive and at that time of installing , there was no internet ’ so I had to searching for a video player into all others USB’s flash drives until I catch on  VLC Media player.exe.file . well , I have a lot to-do checked all outdated software’s into all of my USB and other’s storage media and external hard drives .and yes . I know it almost a 5/6 year of the release date of the version 2.0.7 :) which is in 2013.

K-Lite Codec Pack is perfectly safe (and yes, it can even enable playing FLV files as well as other more obscure formats such as MKV, OGG and many more).  It's fairly well-known and has been around for years and you can do a search on it by name and find articles and reviews about it from reputable sites.  There's also the codec packs from Shark007 (and independent developer that started building/compiling these codec packs going all the way back to Windows Vista, and they are still maintained for Vista, 7, 8/8.1 and 10 to this day).  They have even more advanced functionality such as enabling live preview thumbnails for non-standard video formats such as FLV and MKV as well as HDR, Blu-ray, MP4, M4V, DivX, XviD and pretty much every other format you can think of in Windows Explorer and of course all the codecs required to play them in any media player on your system (including Windows Media Player, though they work for others as well which is pretty nifty in case you want to use a different media player).

You can learn more about it here and you'll find both the STANDARD as well as ADVANCED versions, with the ADVANCED offering additional capabilities such as more codecs for more media formats (more obscure ones) and the big advantage it has over other solutions is that it doesn't alter any file associations so you can keep all of your media files associated with whatever media player(s) you prefer to use.

I've used it for VLC, Media Player Classic, Windows Media Player as well as Windows Media Center (extremely useful for the latter if you use your system as a media server/player with a remote as you can see and play all your files through Media Center directly without having to jump through any hoops or switch to different applications/media players).

There's no adware or bundled apps/toolbars etc. and it even has the ability to remove most other third party codec packs to ensure a clean install and system compatibility.  It also includes a clean uninstall utility that will make sure that it undoes every change and removes every file/codec it installed on the system whenever you want to remove it or update to a new release.

VLC definitely has its advantages, but it always bugged me that it takes a long time to load when you open a file associated with it (even on a relatively fast system like mine).

Anyway, it's totally up to you; I just thought you might want to know about some of the other options out there as this is an area that I have quite a bit of experience in having dealt with the codec situation and the limitations of various media players going all the way back to Windows XP and especially Vista (the Shark007 codec pack was a real life saver when I made the lead to x64, particularly since MS kept both 32-bit and native 64-bit versions of Windows Media Player around throughout Vista/7 (and I assume 8/8.1 and Windows 10 as well, though I haven't verified it personally).  They also have some awesome tools for working with obscure/non-standard media file formats as well as determining and configuring the codecs that your system has installed and will use by default for the various media players on your system

Here's a list of file types it enables support for (though you can select which codecs you do/don't want installed, so it can be customized to your specific needs rather than having to install a ton of codecs you'll never use):

HDR / UHD / H265 / HEVC / MVC, H264 codecs are activated by default.

The following filetypes are enabled and SUPPORTED by the installation of the Shark007 Codecs.
amr | mpc | divx | mka | ape | flac | evo | flv | m4b | mkv | ogg | ogm | rmvb |  xvid | y4m
All of the above filetypes can be queued to the Windows Media Player Playlist using a right-click.

 

I provided tons of info on the Shark007 codecs (my personal favorite which I used for years) and a bit more info on the K-Lite Codec Pack above in the 'spoiler' section in case you're curious.  I also included a link to some nifty video/codec analysis tools that can be super helpful when trying to determine what codec is required for a new/unknown file/format.

Anyway, if Malwarebytes has any issues with the new build of VLC please let us know.  I haven't experienced any problems with it on my own system, but I also only use the portable version so it could be different for the installed build you're using.

I tried to update to VLC 3.0.6 via the program's update prompt and the Malwarebytes extension for Chrome that I have installed in Vivaldi (my current browser of choice) baulked at the update and wouldn't let me download it. When I downloaded the new version directly from VLC, it installed without problem.

OK, good.  It may be that the browser plugin doesn't like the site hosting it for some reason (it has a lot of heuristics that look at things like page behavior, layout and scripting to try and determine when an unknown site might be malicious).  You can report the FP in the Chrome browser extension beta forum and they should be able to whitelist it.

OK , it seem the cause of the problem at the least in my case was not Malwarebytes ! I have to exit/close/shut down the MB and VLC player is still to crash . I also have the full minidump file if they want it . well , going to download the VLC from their website and to see what happen !
