Tired of washed out colors or poor black levels in VLC player?
This happens mainly because VLC player might work in Luminanace Level of 16-235 ( TV LEVELS) instead of 0-255(PC LEVELS). Usually videos are stored in 16-235 YCbCr and is played back at 0-255 RGB so expansion is needed at some point.VLC player shows this issue specifically in PCs with Nvidia Graphics Cards.
FIX : (only if you have nvidia graphics card)
1) Goto Nvidia Control panel
2) In Nvidia Control Panel select adjust video color settings
3) In How do you make color adjustments? Select with Nvidia settings.
4) Select advanced of Nvidia video settings
5)Select FULL(0-255) in dynamic range.
To sum up do as shown in the screenshot.
NOTE: This will apply to all other players. And also will fix color issues with VLC player etc.
