    Question XV extension produce strange blue-tonality colors whith 169.09 drivers

    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:
    http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...59908534146317
    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...
    http://pastebin.ca/875938

    and that's my xorg.conf
    http://pastebin.ca/875941

    thanks all

    UPDATE:
    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?

    i'm looked for it before posting but may be i used some wrong key word...

    Default Work Around

    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.

    Code:
    xvattr -a XV_HUE -v 0
    Hope this helps.

    oh.. tnx i thought i already posted here..

    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
