Why don't you post it at
Here I have never seen a NV developer.
I play video and i get this blue-color! I would say the color are missed-up..
images talk best then words in this case...
if i use gl extension or x11 extension the colors are right..
i think this is a bug...
to let you see what i'm talking about watch this video:
or just see this screenshot taken by me with gl extension:
then watch this screenshot taken by me with xv extension: (click on it to see the full image):
do you have any idea? should i file a bug?
this doesn't happen with drivers i had before: 100.14.23
the 100.14.23 and the 169.09 drivers are the only one i tryed here
/var/log/Xorg.0.log seems to not saying anything strange...
and that's my xorg.conf
i've done some testing... it has exactly a Hue bias of +180 or -180
if you open the second image with GIMP and do: Colors-> Hue and saturation.. drag the Hue to 180 or -180 and you'll see the photo is back to his original colors...
and if i use vlc i can change the hue on the fly .. changing it to more or less half of the slide do the trick... do you think i should file a bug to nvidia?

it's probably a good idea..
i posted here to be sure that it's not a common problem..
i'm looked for it before posting but may be i used some wrong key word...
It isn't a fix but you can work around the problem by installing xvattr and running the below command once an XVideo window has been opened.
Hope this helps.Code:xvattr -a XV_HUE -v 0
i already found that command
anyway: i've found out the bug was withing TOTEM player.. as default it set a wrong hue.. if you don't
open totem at all you don't have any problem..
if you do it change the XV_HUE to ~180
to fix it.. open totem and, in preferences, set hue to 0 (drag all to the left)
save and you will be ok
