May I suggest you go to the Ubuntu Software Center (or Synaptic Package Manager if you prefer), search for VLC, and completely uninstall it? Then reinstall it. This will take less than five minutes, and is easier than editing the VLC configuration files.

If you won't uninstall/reinstall VLC, then open a terminal emulation window, do

rm ~/.config/vlc/vlcrc

and close the window.

Then, reopen VLC.
