This page describes how to adjust image settings including brightness and contrast. Other "how to" pages

How to adjust image settings will depend on your interface. Older versions of VLC required different steps (VLC versions <= 0.9.0 used wxWidgets Interface). Modern VLC installations for Windows and Linux use Qt, Mac installations use the OS X interface.

Qt Interface

  1. In the menu bar, select "Tools" and then "Effects and Filters".
  2. Select the "Video Effects" tab and then "Essential" subtab.
  3. Tick the "Image adjust" checkbox and move the slider for the setting you want to change.
  4. Hue, Brightness, Contrast, Saturation, and Gamma may be adjusted.

Changes take effect immediately.

OS X Interface
