here's a short discussion of a problem which Alice had a long time ago and Bea's reply to Alice's post.
there are newer versions than the one which Alice used then but maybe Bea's suggestions will help anyway.

I am in trouble I don't know what settings I have tried.
I think it is odd I have gotten sound but no visual.
2x I have been told that Windows has blocked access and I have over ridden that.
But just now I got a message that it has stopped working and that windows will close it and let me know if a solution is available.

Alice, let´s see whether one of these settings could help, sorry - they are only in German, but perhaps it can help you find the way.
When you hear sound, but have no pictures, it could be that the stream is coming in, but is not decoded in the right way.
Open VLC, go to "Extras" and "Settings"
Then look at these settings first
- I marked all with red circles:
At least click on "Save" - close VLC and open it again and try whether it works with this.
Click "save" ...
Don´t forget to click on "save" when you made changes - then close VLC and start it new.
