In my VLC audio preferences, I have PulseAudio selected.  There is a 
separate choice for ALSA, which I do not use.

Some time ago (a year or two?) I got information from this e-mail list 
on how to make JACK and PulseAudio co-exist, and using that information, 
I made the changes that let them co-exist successfully.

Months later, when I upgraded to a new level of Lubuntu, I couldn't 
remember those special configuration steps, so I now just run one or the 
other, depending on what I need.

At least, they put in fixes so that if you accidentally run both at the 
same, it now doesn't hang your system, as it used to do years ago.
