    hi guys, i hope you have an idea to fix this, its driving me mad

    whenever i open a DivX encoded file, like an episode of my favorite anime, the picture is washed out, and the colors are corrupted, it all looks horrible, and nowhere near how it should be

    i use Divx 6.0 to play them, and according to Gspot my pc is using the Divx codec, and it should be able to process those files, but still i get that damn corruption, no matter which player i use

    the stupid thing is however, on my laptop they work fine, i just dont remember which combo of codecs i have on there, but it shouldnt really matter i think, after all Divx 6.0 should render even the latest Divx files with trouble

    so can anyone tell me how to fix this?

    Try downloading the K-lite Mega Codec Pack

    Try changing your drivers, there was an issue with at least one set of Nvidia ones that washed out color in video playback.

    I had this not long ago, however as well as getting the colour corruption I got the occasional crash too. It said there was a problem with 'quartz.dll' so I replaced it with one extracted from the DX9 package (Seeming you can't reinstall DirectX) and now it works fine.

    well, the player doesnt matter, i used winamp, WMP and Divx player 6, all the same

    it might be the quartz dll thing, but do i get that from the Dx9 installer pack, or what? i dont know if its the same, since i never played long enough to get a crash

    also, what drivers would be problemfree then? i think im using the newest 77.72 or .77's

    this could be an explanation, since my laptop has via drivers

    Get the dx9 redist package, extract it to a folder with powerarchiver or something, and copy quartz.dll from one of the cabs (dunno which) to wherever your current on is (should be in system32 or system32/drivers)

    This sort of stuff usually happens when you have to much codecs installed at the same time, and they're interfering or something. I would try this:

    1. Uninstall all your codecs, filters, codec packs, etc (audio&video)
    2. Download & install FFDshow 20050920
    3. Download & install AC3Filter 1.01a RC5
    4. Download & install VobSub 2.23
    5. Download & install OggDS 0.9.9.5
    6. Download & install QuickTime Alternative 1.62 (for playing .mov files with windows media player classic, so you can get rid of Quicktime
    7. Download & install Real Alternative 1.43 (for playing .rm with windows media player classic, so you can get rid of Real Player)

    Never use codec packs, they're the best way to screw up your codec setup.
