Poor Quality or Strange Video

What are the problems with the playback?

Some video formats are incompatible with some versions of VLC.

From here on out, we will assume the file which VLC cannot play back is supported by your version of VLC.

Visual errors

Video output is black, white or garbled; or you see green, blue, or red lines on your video. Go!

Video is purple (a.k.a. the Smurf effect)

Why is my video purple in VLC? Go!

Video is distorted

The video runs but the picture is distorted. Go!
