AVI Color Blown Out

Postby bloodniece on Wed Dec 05, 2007 2:36 am

Some back story . . .

I've been using Ubuntu since Hoary and Mandrake before that. I installed Linux Mint on my HP 530 since ACPI and sleep/suspend were not working on Gutsy. I really like Mint! ACPI and sleep work beautifully.

I have a NFS mount of avi videos which all look blown out and over-saturated and crappy. These played and looked fine on Gutsy. Am I missing a codec or have the wrong one?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

As far as I know avi works - haven't checked though
Have you checked that the network is OK?

This COULD be because you're using the default video player Totem. Try opening it with mplayer? I experienced the same thing with a fresh mint install and that's what my fix was, just playing it with a different player. I'm a fan of mplayer, but there are others out there I'm sure you can find.
