Its annoying that they have turned their forums off. I guess their overloaded today.

to fix the pixel issue, try this and see if it works (got it from another forum, although i don't have any issue with the pixels)

Go to tools-->preferences-->show settings ALL-->expand Video-->expand Output Modules-->OpenGL and set it to OpenGL Video Output instead of default

I tried that but had no joy. I added a step and am now a happy camper.

I clicked on "Output Modules" and set that to use OpenGL video output. Previously, even after using your setting, it was set to "Default".

I left enabled what you had specified to set.

But you still get the credit for this, you put me on the right track.

Thank you, the pixelation and edge aliasing are now gone in two files I used to test this.

Update

The method I stated above worked with my lesser quality video files but gave me issues with some higher bit rate ones.

As an experiment I switched the output method to DirectX video output and my issues went away.

There is a small tradeoff though. Windows temporarily disables my desktop theme by reverting it to basic as long as the video is playing. But it sets it back when I close The VLC Player.

On the plus side it seems hardware video acceleration is working well with some types of files. With some 1080p files I think it might be working, but not as efficiently as, say, Media Player Classic Home Cinema.

I'm happy with this.
