LMDE64, VLC squished horizonally + Black and White

Postby Eucalyptus » Sat Jan 15, 2011 5:55 pm

Hi,

Using LMDE 64 in Virtual machine (Virtualbox 4.0, Guest Additions installed). The host is Mint 10 x64.

Within the VM with LMDE an XVid movie is played OK by Totem. VLC squishes the video horizontally and all colors are lost (see screenshot attached).

Thanks in advance for any help.

I had the same problem.

To fix it remove Debian multimedia repository remove VLC and related parts and replace with real Debian packages from Debian repository

Thanks for your help. For now it's easier to give up on VLC.
