Poor video quality with VLC media player in my desktop

Asked By 130 points N/A Posted on -

I recently formatted my desktop with Windows 8. I have partitions and the videos were all located in one partition. I reinstalled VLC media player from a site. Everything were installed successfully. I tried to play the few movies but it keeps on showing me pixelation and “white” disturbances in the screen. It happens often times. I closed VLC player and tried to play again a movie, still the same. Can you show me how to resolve this issue? Can you provide me alternative resolution for this?

Thank you very much!

VLC is one of the best media players for any platform. This type of problem isn’t uncommon.

First of all, try downloading the latest VLC Media Player. Download VLC Media Player.

Then, try changing the output module.

1. Go to Tools >> Preferences.

2. Set “Show Settings” to “All”.

3. Select Video >> Output module.

4. Change to different output modules and test your video.

You also might need to disable RGB option from the following:

1. Go to Preferences >> Video >> Output modules.

2. Uncheck YUV >> RGB checkbox in DirectX section.

If your videos are corrupted, then you can’t play them perfectly. You should also try playing those videos with different players like Media Player Classic, KMPlayer etc. If those players work fine, then it’s the problem of VLC. If even those fails, that means that your video files are corrupted. Try retrieving another copy of the files.

If you are using VLC media player to play your movies and you see those problems during playback, check if you are using the latest version. Try installing the latest version from VLC media player Download. It supports all Microsoft Windows. Download and install it on your computer and then try playing a video again and see how it goes.

If you still see the same issues on the image, try playing the video on Windows Media Player. Normally, pixelation on videos is related to the media player used to play the video. Most videos play perfectly on Windows Media Player without seeing any white or colored pixels appearing on the screen, that is, if the video is supported. You can also use GOM Media Player.

It supports Windows XP Service Pack 2 or higher, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 both 32-bit and 64-bit.
