NVIDIA’s new RTX video super Resolution feature is about to get better. The technology was released at the start of this year to enhance the technology performance of video cameras using AI boosting, helping to erase blurry web videos, but only supports the interactive video player playing with Google Chrome & Microsoft Edge.

However, now with the release of the 599$ GeForce RTX 4070, Nvidia revealed that VideoLANs, a legendary VLC media player, is also getting RTX video super-resolution support today.

Bringing VLC into the equation means RTX video Super Resolution can now work its magic on your offline video library, a massive advantage for movie enthusiasts. With Nvidia, the AI tensor cores inside GeForce RTX 30 & 40-series graphics cards will enhance an ugly video. High-resolution videos can go into an extra-resolution video class. It basically removes the dark areas to prevent them from emerging blocky & blown out, while a high-contrast area can be sharpened. This results in an improved overall resolution of videos.

Although using RTX video Super-resolution for the web, the video looks significantly better when you are viewing streams with amazing production values and high bitrates like Netflix or Disney. It’s very great for anime and cartoons. But make sure that you are using GeForce drivers and that VLC is running the newest builds so that you can regain the feature.

RTX video super-resolution decreases the cost of your graphics card and can interfere with performance if you play games and watch upscaled videos at once. You must manually activate it and select a quality level in Nvidia’s clunky control panel. Lower quality levels, like 1 or 2, need less work from the GPU while still offering noticeable improvements to video.
