    Talking If you're having Inverted Video colors with Ubuntu 9.10..

    I had this same issue. I have an Nvidia graphics card in my system, and when I first upgraded Jaunty to Karmic, every time I viewed a video on my system, the colours were inverted. The thing is, this never happened with Youtube and sites like that. Well, here's how you fix that.

    -Open up Totem (Movie Player for the new users out there)
    -Go to Edit>Preferences.
    -Click the tab labelled "Display".
    -Now, check the Colour Balance bars. They should be all in the middle, not to the sides.
    -Slide them all to the centre, or just hit "Reset to Defaults".


    That should do it! Video should be fixed.

    I recommend that the admins sticky this, as it seems to be a very common problem people are having, and it's very annoying. You actually think it's something serious, when it's just something simple. Well, that's how most computer problems are anyway.

    I hope this helps anyone who's frustrated! Have fun watching videos on Ubuntu 9.10!

    Unhappy Re: If you're having Inverted Video colors with Ubuntu 9.10..

    I'm suddenly getting reversed color with all films and all applications! (VLC, Totem, kdenlive...) Any ideas appreciated! (I guessing it's some sort of video driver issue?) thanks! /:b

    I see this with Dragon player and with the embedded video on NASA TV, using either Mozilla or Chrome (Konqueror doesn't play it at all). However flash video (e.g. BBC News videos) doesn't have the problem.

    Any clues as to how to fix it? the advice for Totem doesn't work in Dragon player.

    I also had similar problem. The Totem player settings did not work. However when I disable hardware acceleration in the adobe flash player settings, the issue is fixed. I did aright click on the youtube video player-> settings and in one of the tabs there is a check box to enable/disable hardware acceleration. Try that. It may work for you.
