[solved] VLC showing pixelated grey screen every now and then

I just wanted to share this as I was looking for a solution to this and found it just now, I wager there are others bothered by this.

It is a very old issue, considering this is a 2014 post, and I am amazed that it hasn't been taken care of by default yet.

First post shows an image of what I mean, solution is at the bottom

Person says:
PREFERENCES --> Show Settings --> All
Input/Codecs --> [ADVANCED] File Caching
Default 300ms ; changed to 10000ms


I also increased my *Disc caching* and *Network Caching*

And then someone right below that (the last post on the page) states that 3000 helps plenty which I can confirm, haven't seen it happen in the past half hour.

Oh.. I didn't look on the forums here, so maybe it has already been posted *chuckle*
