Hey everyone, I ran a search so forgive me if Im posting something that is already been posted. Ive been trying to watch some game trailers lately and all I get is a bunch of brightly mixed colors. For those of you knwo what the linear burn option is in photoshop, thats exactly what the movies show as. Very unpleasent to try and watch. Any Idea on how to fix it?
Make sure you've got the latest codecs. Try K-Light Codec Pack, it has alot of current popular codecs.
They ask for money... Ill try and find some codecs else where, though thanks for the tip of reven!
You want codecs? How about a codec bundle? This bundle has every codec known to man! Go to http://www.free-codecs.com/download/ACE_Mega_CoDecS_Pack.htm and you will be set for life!
holy.... thats a lot of codecs :eek:
I got that codec pack, and NEVER needed to find a codec to play any type of file! I did have to change "file associations" so my music would play in Winamp instead of WMP after I installed it.
I downloaded the codecs and I still get the same problem, it only occurs with files associsated with DivX and Windows Media Player. I have over 2Gb of game trailers Im waiting to watch and I am unable to watch them due to this problem.
Do you have an Nvidia card? If so update to the beta drivers, because the current ones have a bug that causes the colors to become washed out and the gamma to be way to high. I'm not sure if this is exactly what you're experiencing.
I have the 77.72 drivers come to think of it, this problem only has been occuring ever since I installed them. They greatly increase performance in my games, but then again so did the 71.84 drivers. I only have the 77.xx drivers installed due to the fact Bf2 uses them and I cant play the game if I dont have them. EDIT: I found this thread and it fixes my problem, maybe it can help those experiencing it too. Thanks for all of you who posted here to help me.
okay try this. My Nvidia card was doing the same exact thing I think. And after installing the beta drivers, this fixed it. Right click on the desktop and go to the Nvidia Display go to the color correction menu Select apply color changes to All. Set color profile to advanced mode hit apply then okay. See if that helps.
