I recently downloaded Star Wars BD25 and I mounted it on my computer to watch it before I burn it to blu-ray. Unfortunately I noticed on the menus there’s a green flickering line that runs across the entire top edge. I’m not sure which part of the process went wrong so I’m not sure how to fix the problem. Any advice would be very appreciated.
Just this morning I downloaded ROTJ and I encountered the exact same problem. Because of the consistency between the two films, I think it might be resolved once it’s burned to blu-ray. But then I also don’t want to put in the effort and money of burning it to blu-ray only to have the same green line pop up. I’m really not sure what to do now.
Another update, I downloaded TESB and got the same problem. I thought I can’t have replicated the exact same mistake 3 times in a row so I figured it must be a problem with either VLC Media Player or my laptop. I moved ROTJ over to my parents laptop and it played perfectly. I assume the other 2 will work fine as well.
I think I’m going to leave this post up so if anyone encounters the same problem then they can see this and hopefully fix it.
I remember having a similar problem a couple of years back… I think I corrected it by:-
Open the vlc media player, then click on ‘Tools’, then click on ‘Preferences’, and then click on the ‘Video’ icon.
Change the output from Automatic to Open GL video output, and then click Save.
(I think I may have had a play around with the ‘dropdown’ menu options below the ‘Automatic’ setting… to find which worked the best for me (for me, it was ‘Open GL video’ option).
Media Player Classic is a decent and free alternative to VLC player - it may be worth trying too.
Good luck with it mate - I hope it works.
