All videos I try to play have a reddish hue

posted in General

okay, don’t really remember when it started happening.. because at first i thought it was just some weird video file, then i realized that not only is it every video file (with an exception every now and then) but also every player plays movies in red, no matter the extension. players i’ve used are winamp, wmp11, VLC and... that’s it actually. reply

sounds like a codec problem m8 reply


happen to know what i can do to fix it? reply

I too have this problem.

System Specs :
AMD 3500+ AM2
2*7950gt Sli
800Gb hard drive’s
Audigy 2 ZS sound card
Windows Media Centre 2005 SP2 incl all updates.

I have only got Divx installed which I have removed, reinstalled, system restored etc, which didn’t help!

Just tried what you have mentioned above and still does not help!

Sorry for thread jacking, but i think we can help each other out reply


didn’t work for me either..

although, it’s weird. prior to trying this, and possibly even now still i’m not sure, some movies would play reddish, but if i was watching a playlist of movies some would play in normal color, and some would play reddish, and it was never consistent. reply


windows movie maker is rubbish, even if you have the codec ereths no guarantee that it will work, you better off using a different prog altogether like Nero vision Express is simpler and easier to use reply
