    Video won't play

    I installed the N-Videa driver the other day and now I can't view videos in any program except gxine Where the colours are all funny. Would N-Videa cause this or could it be something else?
    Any ideas how to fix?
    All player such as VLC totem dragon mplayer will not show video at all but sound is fine.
    Tried to reinstall codecs.

    change the video settings on VLC to GNOME or openGL or something that will work. Did you also install Cairo dock cause that is known to mess with VLC.

    How? Which menu?
    I also installed MythTV would that effect it?

    In VLC preferences under the Video tap on the left. Change one of the output modes to see if you can get a picture. This is what happened to me and this is how i changed it. I doubt it has to do with your drivers but if you think it is your driver then switch back and see if that fixes the problem.
