Maybe you are right. The only one I have used is sharpen.

I have tinkered with that setting before, but it always produced a distortion of the images, rather than sharpening them for me.

There seem to be some file types it works for better than others. It seems to work well on MP4 but not AVI or WMV.

I may have a few .avi, but no .wmv. 99% of my files are either .mkv, .mp4 or .flv. However, VLC doesn't seem to discriminate, it plays all of them the same...both good and bad...with the exception that it does often reports my .avi files as being broken, and requires repairing them before being played.

Instead of using VLC to adjust your hue/contrast/brightness/saturation/gamma settings, have you thought about adjusting them in your nVidia control panel? You can do this for all hardware video overlays without having to change the desktop color settings.

In addition, the nVidia control panel lets you enable greater contrast, as by default the brightness values range only between 16-235. You can set this to the full dynamic range of 0-255 instead.

That would be good, except that I have the settings in the Control Panel set so that desktop and other programs display properly. If I reset the Control Panel for VLC, it would throw everything else off, and I just have to reset it each time I use VLC, instead of the player itself.

No, that's just it - it won't throw your existing desktop settings off. I'm talking about the separate settings for video overlays, which includes what VLC plays. On my system I have the desktop and video overlay settings calibrated separately as well.

Yes, I have used the Control Panel's video setting in that fashion in the past, but for whatever reason, changing those settings, even with it set to use the Nvidia settings, doesn't change anything in VLC. I don't know why, but it seems hit and miss as to whether it will work, because sometimes it does, and sometimes not.

Hmm, I didn't expect that - for me, the settings always stick when I play a movie in VLC.
I assume you're not trying to enable the same settings in VLC at the same time - so I can't think of what else the issue could be.

Sorry, I tried
