Seek bar suddenly disappears in VLC Media Player

Writing by on Wednesday, 4 of March , 2009 at 11:14 am

Can’t find out how to turn on the seek bar in VLC Media Player in the Full Screen Mode?

Close VLC Media Player and then Delete the vlc folder in your %appdata% (Delete C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\vlc)

Optionally you might also try to Reset Preferences. Tools menu > Preferences > Reset Preferences > Save (Did not work for me.)
