all movies play in black and white
I'm using mandrake 9.1 and every movie I watch is always in black and white.

At first I only used XINE to play movies, but this goes for Kabudle as well. In windows, all movies are in full colour. Is there a settings I have to change somewhere?:scratch:

please help!

may well be a flaw in the graphics card driver you are using... try using a different video output. what are you using at the moment? have you tried a decent player like

I managed to fix the problem by going into XINE and changing the output driver from 'AUTO' to something else. I just tried the first one in the list, 'AADXR3', and that worked.

Thanks for the help!

Problem came back!

Right after I posted that 'solution', I rebooted and when I tried playing the movies again, guess what? black and white again!

The output driver hasn't changed. I tried changing it again but this time it didn't work. I'll try downloading that MPlayer program and hope that works for me.

try this
rename .xine and run xine, it will start with default setup

Should I rename it to something specific? or anything will do?

no care =)
.xine01 for example or copy and paste to tmp directory just remore this directory to let xine create a new one.
