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.”
