    Weird colors on video playback (imac 9,1, karmic 9.10)

    I upgraded from 9.04 to 9.10 without any issues. Everything including video worked fine. then i did a upgrade that included a linux kernel update, and all my video looks like the picture below. it's like the negative is being shown. this happens on all video players, across multiple video formats. Anyone know what's going on?

    If you have Nvidia Driver downgrade from 185 to 173 that works for me

    Before you downgrade your graphics driver check whether your color balance in Totem is correct!
    Go to: Edit > Preferences then to the display-flag and choose the "Reset to Defaults"-button.
    That worked for me since the color balance was somehow displaced after upgrading to karmic.

    Haha, can't believe you would do a reinstall for that. I had the same problem at the last post.
    Changed the Hue back to default and all was good.

    The problem is not just Totem, any video player is affected for this issue (VLC, Mplayer and so) in all the other applications the colors are OK (pictures, desktop, etc).

    The problem was reported @ Nvidia forum with Ubuntu 9.04 and Nvidia 185. There're some pictures.

    The fixed I used after upgrading from 9.04 to 9.10.

    In terminal:
    Code:
    gstreamer-properties
    Select Video tab, then under Output, choose the Plugin drop down menu, and change the value to X window system (No XV)

    I'm not exactly sure what this is, or if it is different than the default settings fix in the end but it worked!
