1. Nothing will happen unless you check the "Image Properties
Filter" box. You'll see this box with a bunch of others when
you click on Filters.
2. You won't see any changes until you save your settings, stop
(not pause) VLC playback and start it again.
This is a tiresome and clumsy process, but it does work.
