Hi Folks,

I am having a problem viewing video on windows media player and quicktime. The colors are not correct. It almost looks like a negative image except it's red and black not black and white. Any ideas as to what the problem might be?

TIA

A little bit more information for everyone. While trying to edit some video in Pinnacle 12 last night, while trying to capture video from my dv camera, I noticed that the capture window had the problem with being able to view the image properly. It look like a reverse image or negative. Lots of black and small amounts of color (Color is on the edges of objects in the window). Once the video was captured and while playing it back I didn't have any problems viewing the video. It's almost like the problem resides in the video that is being streamed.

Anyone have any ideas?

Philip,

On the system tab of DirectX Diagnostic Tool this what I have:

Microsoft Windows XP Professional (5.14, Build 2600)
Bios: Phoenix ROM BIOS PLUS Version 1.10.2.3.0
Processor: Intel® Core™ 2 CPU 6700 @ 2.66GHz (2 CPUs)
Memory: 1022MB Ram
Page File: 1358MB used, 1101MB Available
DirectX Version: Direct X 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904)

My video card is a NVIDIA GeForce 7900GS. Main Driver is nv4_disp.dll. Version 6.14.0011.6218. I"ll check to see if the driver needs updating.

Let me know if you need anything else.

Philip,

It looks like installing the new driver solved the problem. I put in a DVD and it worked properly. Before it was messed up. Thanks for the help. I appreciate it.
