Default Green screen

Hey,

I have a problem. My (downloaded) movies are allmost completely green (like slime) when I play them. I can only see some little movement. I know that the movie are well-ripped. The only problem is that my pc doesn't play them right. Can somebody help me?

-In run on XP
-I have Nimo 5 build 8 installed (without 4 non recommend filters)

Thnx in advance

Try using a different player to view the video's. For XviD movies, BSPlayer is a great choice.

Thnx

the green is gone with BSPlayer. The only problem now is that the movement in the actual frame is going right thru the older frames. It's like it doesn't refresh fast enough. I also prefer to watch in Winamp. Isn't it right that if I got the good codecs I can watch the movies in almost every videoplayer? I hope someone can advise me what to uninstall or install.

Thnx in advance

I wonder, are the movies that you are trying to watch and keep messing up encoded in XviD format? If so, then try installing FFDShow (search for it on google or on the forum).

As for Winamp, I must say i found it rather picky when playing movies, so I prefer version2 than the new V3 which can play videos.

Thnx again (You're good!),

I still got another problem (I hope i'm not too much trouble to you). I try to watch Die Another Day, but James looks a little bit blue. It looks like the colors are mixed up. All the peoples skins are blue. What do i have to do?

Thumbs up

You have proberly installed nimo pack5 build 8 -

In standard installation nimo selects Ffdshow Directshow 2002-04-19 under Direct Show filters - deselect this filter and that should do the trick.

I had the same problem. with blur and green screen

most of my experience camera's always seem to be very heavy on the blue side, like the other colors aren't as bright. is it a cam?

Default Easy fix for Xvid Green Screen w/Blocks or Playing Well w/ no audio

Many people seem to be having this same problem as I once did:

Green screen in Windows Media Player with scattered weird blocks.

Often if you fix this problem you get no audio. Here is an easy way to have both high quality Xvid video and audio (wow! what a concept)

If you have Nimo codec pack installed, uninstall it completely, as well as any other divx/xvid codecs listed in Add/Remove programs. I am not saying Nimo is crap, but it screwed up my computer. I am sure there are very good codecs included in the pack, but it seems unstable.

Download and install the 3ivx codec from http://www.3ivx.com/download/index.html . I have found that their website is down sometimes, so if you get an error, just try them again a little while later.

Now you should have video.

If you still don't have audio go to http://sourceforge.net/projects/ac3filter/ , click on Download and download the exe version of the latest build (should be the top one). When you install this AC3 audio decoder, your audio should work.

Some files, however use Ogg Vorbis encoding for the audio, in that case install the Ogg decoder from http://www.divx-ac3.com/ .

At least all of this fixed it on my WinXP machine.

Also, if this message helps you fix the problem, please cut and paste this fix to every message board you know of where people are having this problem. Maybe we can put an end to it once and for all.
