VLC Player starts left audio channel in mono

VLC version 2.1.3 (latest) seems to start some MP3 files in stereo mode left and you’ll need to manually change it back to stereo every time a new file plays.

There is no answer in the forums : link 1

Here is a solution to fix this annoyance.
Go to TOOLS -> PREFERENCES
There check the “All” under Show Settings (at the bottom left).
Go to Audio
Change “Stereo audio output mode” to Stereo ( The default is “unset” which seems to be the problem ).
Click SAVE to store the settings.
