WMP playing weird colors?

posted in Video Codecs

When i try to watch videos on ebaum, the colours are really weird. The skin becomes blue, yellow becomes red, and it basically look like a negative off the actual colours. Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this and what caused it? reply

No, but I have the same problem with both Realplayer and MediaPlayer. The clips that do not work are always .wmv extension. They play perfectly on other pc’s.

Yea, I figured it out. You need to reinstall WMP,and the colours should be back to normal. reply

I can’t see how reinstalling WMP will affect Realplayer also.
I have reinstalled both WMP and RP. I still the same problem. I agree it is only WMV files that have this problem. The files are ok as they play on other pc’s.

I am puzzled. Any other ideas? reply

Hi,

I had the same problem. Disabling video acceleration on Windows Media player (Tools > Options > Performance > Video Acceleration = None) fixed the problem.

RalphRost Thanks that fixed mine as well. reply

When you go to Tools>Options>Performance>Advanced you can disable video mixing renderer and it works that way without turning acceleration off reply
