Removing or reinstalling the package won't remove the local configurations of your user. I'm not an assiduous user of VLC, but I found the following directories in my home directory:

~/.local/share/vlc
~/.config/vlc
~/.cache/vlc

Maybe removing them will do the trick, but I didn't test it. It would be nice if you backup those directories before.

HTH,

Germán.
