"If you're having trouble with your high definition videos and they're encoded with the H.264 codec then you might want to try this: Preferences -> (tab) Input / Codecs -> (tab) Other codecs -> FFmpeg -> (tick "Advanced options" box) in the drop-list next to "Skip the loop filter for H.264 decoding" select "All", save and restart VLC."
