VLC Player Green Screen Problem…
“I have been experiencing a kind of unusual problem with my video files for a while. I downloaded some videos (in AVI file format) and they played perfectly fine just a few days ago. Then I updated my VLC media player to the latest version, and now, all those download files only turn out to display a green screen. The audio is playing normally, but the screen is nothing but green. I've checked to play those files using the earlier version of VLC too but the problem still persists. I am not able to get to the root of this cause. Is there any way I can resolve this issue at home? Thanks.”
Experiencing a green screen in VLC is generally an error caused due to factors such as video file corruptions, VLC program errors, operating system corruption, facing unexpected system crashes, errors in recorded permissions, download/transfer errors, damage of VLC video files and more. The green screen problem causes the VLC media player’s screen to present nothing but a green colored display when a video file with mentioned issues is played. It is sometimes possible that the audio plays normally along with the green screen and at times there may be no audio at all.
1. Uninstall VLC media player from the computer which is showing green screen error and reinstall it. Now try to play those files. Alternately, try to play those videos using a different media player.
2. Disable video acceleration from the VLC media player preferences and restart the app to play the files.
3. If you are working on the Windows operating system on which VLC is displaying green screen, then disable GDI (Graphics Device Interface) and try playing the video files.
