Ubuntu: VLC opens and closes immediately when I play video files


I made a clean install on my laptop yesterday and installed VLC via command line.

VLC crashes immediately as soon as I play any MP4 file. MP3 files play fine.

I reinstalled Ubuntu. The problem persists.

I'm using Ubuntu 16.04. VLC version 2.2.2 Weatherwax.

I get a dialog "Ubuntu 16.04 has experienced an internal error"

Open VLC Player go to Tools in upper bar and select Preferences. Switch to Video settings, disable Accelerated Video Output and change Output to OpenGL or try other options if OpenGLs are not working.
