VLC HowTo/Hardware acceleration
|This page describes how to adjust hardware acceleration settings.||Other "how to" pages|
This is a simpler guide than the page VLC GPU Decoding, with fewer steps.
From the menu toolbar select Tools → Preferences → Input & Codecs → Codecs → Hardware-accelerated decoding. To disable, select Disable. To re-enable, select Automatic (unless a particular hardware acceleration method is desired).
Remember to press Save to save VLC settings and restart VLC after that to make sure changes are enabled.
