Blue video

Hey guys, I'm having video problems. When ever i try and play an AVI or WMV, I get a blue video screen. The audio is fine, but the video is not. I've tryed using xine, mplayer, an noatun, all with the same luck.

Any ideas?

Are you sure you installed all codecs?

If so, try changing your video output.
Easy way:
Open your console or terminal and type gstreamer-properties.
Click on the video tab and use the test option to see what works for you.
