colors in videos messed up.


Im using Suse 10.2. When I try to play certain videos, the colors get messed up. I cant really explain it, but here is a screenshot:

It happens with all of my video players. Some videos do this, some dont. It hasent happend yet with streaming video.

Sorry for not being descriptive, this is all I know. Mabey its a plugin issue?

Also, anyone know where to get Flash 9.0 beta 2? I tried downloading it from http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer9.html , but I cant find the Linux version. I cant find it in Yast either. Thanks.

Post your xorg.conf file. It should be located at /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

Ok, before you do anything back this file up. I usually just copy it and rename the copy xorg.conf.KnownGood .

You see all the Depth # (15,16,24,8)? This is how man bit color depth you can use in that mode. Essentially this is how many different colors you can display. The more colors the more "tv like" the picture. There is a price to be paid for higher color. The more colors the slower the video card runs. If you have a card made in the last 10(?) years it will run fine on anything 16bit and above (8 bit is not needed).

Here is what I would do:

1. Take the following section:

SubSection "Display"
Depth 8
Modes "1280x1024"
EndSubSection
Device "Device[0]"
Identifier "Screen[0]"
Monitor "Monitor[0]"
EndSection

1a. and add a # in front of every line. Like:

#SubSection "Display"
#Depth 8
#Modes "1280x1024"
#EndSubSection
#Device "Device[0]"
#Identifier "Screen[0]"
#Monitor "Monitor[0]"
#EndSection

2. Do the same for the section marked Depth 15.

3. Save the new xorg.conf

4. log out/ log back in

5. test it on your vids and see if it helps


If you run into trouble just post back (post back regardless).

Ok, this is what I did:

Section "Screen"
#DefaultDepth 24
#SubSection "Display"
#Depth 15
#Modes "1280x1024"
#EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 16
Modes "1280x1024"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1280x1024"
EndSubSection
#SubSection "Display"
#Depth 8
#Modes "1280x1024"
#EndSubSection
#Device "Device[0]"
#Identifier "Screen[0]"
#Monitor "Monitor[0]"
#EndSection


When I try to save, I get this:

The document could not be saved, as it was not possible to write to file:///etc/X11/xorg.conf.
Check that you have write access to this file or that enough disk space is available.
