VLC Media Player by the Videolan not for profit organization is my favorite media player. I would even go as far as to say that it is the best and most versatile media player out there. It is free, open source, and comes in a portable version, too.
I extremely rarely find a movie that the VLC Media Player can’t play back. There were only two or three occurrences of that behavior over many years.
But there is an inconvenience that occurs more often, namely that the video played back has its colors shifted.
I struggled with this issue for a while. But after trying out anything and everything I found a quite simple solution.
Launch VLC Media Player and open in it the video file with the shifted colors.
Then go to
Then tick the
This action will open up another media player window which will be a clone of the original media player window.
However, in this clone window the colors will already be in their correct positions.
Now all you need to do is
Don’t worry, the playback will proceed correctly in the original window — you will not see the shifted color anymore.
And that’s all there is to it. Once you know who to go about it, the solution is very simple indeed.
