View Full Version : Horrible movie picture

20-10-2005, 03:30 PM
Hey all. At the moment, im using an ati radeon 9500 all in wonder. I thought about updating my drivers for it since my tv function was working too well. Once i updated drivers, i've found that any movie i play, the quality is bad and colours not right. I went back to previous drivers and no change. I've deleted drivers properly using driver cleaner and then reinstalled. Still there is a problem.

I tested my games out and they work fine. SO its only movies giving me a problem. I've tried playing different file formats, updating players, using different players, and getting codecs, but STILL i can't fix this problem. Anyone know what to do?

And what programs, have u tried so far?

LCD ? If so check the refresh rate. I had a problem when I played movies and my refresh rate was set at 75Mhz. After I set it to 60 or 72 it was fine.

I tried the refresh rate idea. That didn't work.

So far, i've tried window media player, quicktime, winamp, divx, creative player, nero showtime, ati media player

Those programs arent the best, to use for DVD.

Try something like http://www.dvd-x-player.com/

Or PowerDVD http://www.gocyberlink.com

However, dvd x player, is a trial until u register it.

Or try this http://www.videolan.org/

Or if you're trying to view movies on a TV, thru video out, the prob maybe macrovision.

I just tried using power dvd. That didn't help either. Even mpg's and avi's are looking crap.

The problem is probably your "Color overlay", turn it off. Can be done in most players of in the ATI driver area. I have had this b4 as well.
