video player color goes off

I can't understand this one.

Using Mandrake 10, with a NVIDIA card
everytime I start playing a video by double clicking the icon instead of loading the file from the application menu and the colors become greens and purples (including the tv capturing). The only way I now to return to normal is by INIT 3 back to command prompt and start x again.

Is there a way to get the color back without having to reload X and what could be causing this problem to startup with

Any help would be greatly appreciated
