divx green distorted movies

Post#1 » Sun Dec 20, 2009 9:41 pm

certain movies i can't watch, because picture's green and distorted.
example, clockers, dave chappelle killing 'em softly, are green and distorted, when i try to watch them.

wondering if anyone else is having the same problem, or is there something i can do to fix it?

thanks :) :) :)

You should post the links just so we can verify it isn't the videos themselves :P
Choose life.
Choose a job.
Choose a starter home.
Choose dental insurance, leisure wear and matching luggage.
Choose your future.
But why would anyone want to do a thing like that?
I chose not to choose life. I chose somethin' else.

I have heard of this happening with people with older computers. Do not have anything else running and close all windows before you start your movie.

I checked Clockers; I didn't get any green distortion.

I have the same issue with my work computer (dont tell my boss), and it is indeed a problem with older computers/video cards as froggy said. Doesnt happen on every video unless its HD trailers from Apple's site. Havent found a fix yet, will try out some options tommorow when im back @ the office and let you know the results.

My son told me a way he made it work. If memory serves me right he opened the movie in a new window, paused it, then closed out all other windows and then watched the movie. Something like that. I hope this helps.

You're a parent.....

That fact should profoundly change my impression of you; should alter my vision of you as a creepy mysterious volatile entity, to a vision of you as being...human.

But it doesn't.

In fact, my impression of you becomes even more gaze-into-an-abyss-the-abyss-will-gaze-back-into-you esque.

I didn't think it was possible for me to fear and love you more than I did.
But fear and love you more I most certainly do.

By the way, that new sig of yours.....like a glove, my friend.
Like. A. Glove.
