Hi, not OP but here is the error I get:

VLC media player 3.0.0-git Vetinari (revision 2.2.0-git-10261-g9da48aa) [0000557b5876b1c8] core libvlc: Running vlc with the default interface. Use 'cvlc' to use vlc without interface. This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "wayland" in "".

Available platform plugins are: eglfs, linuxfb, minimal, minimalegl, offscreen, xcb.

Reinstalling the application may fix this problem. Aborted (core dumped)
