B2: WMVs are played with green color effect

Post by Dreamer » Mon Jan 02, 2006 12:21 am

A known 'bug' (I didn't find original topic), but some new information. WMVs are played with green color effect in xnview. It is the same in all players, but when I change option DirectShow video from 'system default' to 'old renderer' in Windows Media Player Classic, it works good there. So it should be possible to 'fix' it in xnview too.

Windows media player has his own codec, so i have no info for that

Dreamer, using "Media Info 0.7.4" can you find out if these files are WMV1, WMV2 or WMV3?

WMV1 = Windows Media 7 encoded
WMV2 = Windows Media 8 encoded
WMV3 = Windows Media 9 encoded

I'll run my own tests now for this bug.
Usually the "green effect" with video players indicates a video driver problem.

Update:
I can't reproduce this bug, WMP 9, WM_VCM 9, DirectX 9.0c Dec 2005 and ATI 5.12 drivers installed.

I'd opt for Closing this.
I don't think there's hope for another video renderer in XnView.

No, this problem has nothing to do with the video renderer in XnView.
It's something else and I'd like to see how it's turns out as I have an interest in digital video.

Whatever the reason is, it seems not to be a part of XnView.

But - can anyone confirm 'green effect' too?

I'll try to check my files, ckit, do you have a link to "Media Info 0.7.4", I can't find it.

Check this site as well.

WMP Mini-FAQ:
http://www.nwlink.com/~zachd/pss/pss.html

Check your codecs against mine:

My Tests:
WMV1 with WMA2's = no green effect
WMV2 with WMA2's = no green effect
WMV3 with WMA2's = no green effect
WMV3 with WMA3's = no green effect

Dreamer, could you post a screenshot and a test video on some file sharing service?

It's MediaInfo, not Media Info, that's the problem.

BTW - thumbnails are OK

Versions of my WMVs:

- video WMV2, audio WMV2 - correct
- video S-Mpeg4 v3, audio WMV2 - correct
- video WMV3, audio WMV2 - green effect
- video WMV3, audio WMV3 - green effect

Screenshot with correct thumbnail and 'green' video in preview:

And - I said it's not exactly xnview's problem, it's the same in other players, but...
...when I change option DirectShow video from 'system default' to 'old renderer' in Windows Media Player Classic, it works good there. So it should be possible to 'fix' it in xnview too.
...and also thumbnails are correct.

I don't know what to suggest, make sure you have the following installed.

DirectX SDK 9.0c Dec 2005
WMP 9.00.00.3263 (you can only get this with WMP patches -> http://www.mdgx.com/wmp.htm)
WMP_VCM 9 codec
Windows Media 10 Codecs for WMP 9

Can you get WMV3 clips to play OK in MPC using VMR9 renderless because you can't your problem lies with DirectX or video card?

Check for any problems in "dxdiag" utility.

Last Resort:
From Desktop -> Properties -> Display Properties -> Settings -> Advanced -> Troubleshooting -> Reduce your Hardware Acceleration by 1 each time and see if that helps.

I see that it is a matter of codecs, so upgrade your codecs or Suggest multiple video rendering engines.
