Blue hue or solid green screen in video playback (regardless of player)
Ok, I am experiencing a similar problem to the one in Question #7373, however, none of the solutions in that thread work for me.
When trying to playback DVDs, I experience 2 different problems depending on which player I use... This is what happens:
In totem (regardless of whether I use totem-gstreamer or totem-xine) I get no video playback... Audio plays fine, but the video is a SOLID green screen...
This is the case regardless of what I set video output to in "gstreamer-
OK, now in VLC:
If I leave the video output set to "default", I get this same solid green screen.
If I set the video output to "Xvideo Extension Video Output", I get the same solid green screen.
If I set the video output to "OpenGL Video Output", I get perfect and smooth DVD playback (and perfect colors), but the picture is somewhat pixelated and blocky and that is a bit undesirable.
If I set the video output to "X11 Video Output", I get perfect quality DVD playback... no pixelation at all and pretty much perfect quality. HOWEVER, the colors are severely messed up (almost as if the colors in the RGB field are switched around) with everything having a blue tint to it. Another problem is that when using this setting the playback tears and is somewhat choppy, especially in full screen (which I expect is because "X11 Video Output" is not accelerated as opposed to the "Xvideo Extension Video Output" which is accelerated I think).
I am running an IBM ThinkPad R32 with the ATI Mobility Radeon 7000 (or M6, or M6 LY, depending on the documentation) w/ 16mb of video ram.
I am using the open source radeon driver (with ati wrapper) and I'm running Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackelope.
It's also worth noting that I have tried a few other video players with the same results (including xine-ui).
It seems to me that it is most likely a problem with drivers or possibly codecs rather than with the video player(s) themselves since it seems to be the same case across the board.
I am not at my computer right now so any other information you might need, feel free to ask, and I will update tonight when I get to my computer.
Thank you ahead of time.
