VLC volume on tracks & videos resets after repeating erroneously

VLC volume on tracks & videos resets after repeating erroneously. (seems to be a possible exploit; wifi 6 is turned off in bios & no internet or power.. connected when this happens) Audio also cuts out at certain points in the track as if the track has been manipulated yet it seems to be have been.

Much appreciated.

I do it fore you, maybe you can't edit this one.

Audio also cuts out at certain points in the track as if the track has been manipulated yet it seems to be have *NOT been.
