VLC – How to turn off the OSD


Earlier we walked through how to loop your video in VLC. Another issue we run into a lot is VLC showing the clip name at the beginning of the video clip.  This is how to turn that off.


  • The first thing you do is go to VLC and down to Preferences
  •  click on the Subtitles/OSD Show with the BLACK ARROW below
  •  Uncheck the Enable OSD as shown by the PURPLE ARROW below
