VLC media player for Windows Troubleshooting • Re: VLC Rainbow video effect and random image when song is played from downloads folder!

Whenever I play any video this happens https://youtu.be/suEjiW0F4iY

Check if you have any video filter enabled in the menu Tools -> Effects and Filters (or Ctrl+E) -> Video Effects
Then disable everything there, check all of the tabs, save the settings and try again.

and whenever I play any song in the downloads folder this https://youtu.be/JjhUrWWpDws happens but not anywhere else. I have reinstalled VLC multiple times and nothing. I turned off auto fetch art nothing revoked internet access nothing.

First, reboot your computer.
Uninstall VLC.
Then delete the whole C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\ folder if it’s still exists, it might be C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\ if you’re using the 32-bit version.
Also delete the whole %APPDATA%\vlc\ folder.

Once done, reboot again and reinstall latest version of VLC, v3.0.20 as of today.
