Been using both VLC and movieplayer for ages without any problem. Today I had a run-in with a corrupted download. The movie was not completely downloaded and both movieplayer and vlc could not get the length of the movie but did show picture. Since then, I get a blue screen filling the viewing space and sound is ok. No idea where to look.
I can however play movies with Avidemux, which is not designed just for viewing but for editing.
Can anyone help me with this, where should i look?

Ok, VLC is fixed by resetting the video output to X11 but Movieplayer, still doing the blue screen thingie. It does not have such extensive settings as VLC. I assume I am looking in the wrong place?
