It is highly unlikely it is VLC, more likely than not the file qualiy and/or your video card.

I Love Banshee, the new Banshee support video,

It may also have something to do with changing your color depth to 16bit question 44077. As a test, I would suggest putting it back to 24 and see if it helps. That would at least help pinpoint the issue.

Can you help with this problem?
