I installed VLC media player 2.2.0-pre2 Weatherwax (revision 2.2.0-pre1-15-g5178b24). When I'm on normal view there's a random green line displaying at bottom, right, and left.

Even if Im on full screen mode the green line is still displaying. I used to play 720p and 1080p videos. Im using gnome 14.04 LTS

I had the exact same problem, go into the settings and disable hardware acceleration, after that you won't have any annoying green lines.enter image description here

  • It works bud! I can watch videos now, without that annoying line.
