    For me, resetting default values did not work, instead I had to put the Hue to minimum value:

    In a console window type

    totem

    then go to the Edit preferences->View tab and put the hue (the very last slider) all to the left.

    Confirm and even VLC works fine afterwards.

    I'm not exactly sure what this is, or if it is different than the default settings fix in the end but it worked!
    Thank you, bcn17. This worked for me on 10.10, although I gstreamer-properties was already installed.

    That worked for me since the color balance was somehow displaced after upgrading to karmic.
    Thanks. This totally worked for me!
