recently totem has started playing movies in greyscale. The strange thing is that when it creates thumbnails in nautilus in colour. Has anyone else experienced this at all?
Before, sometimes the window would appear blue the first time a movie was openened and then when it was opened again it would appear normally. Now it still does the same thing but it appears greyscale.
I had this problem, too. Check if the output is just desaturated. Seek the saturation control somewhere in the preferences dialogs (I don't know the exact menu because I've recently exchanged totem with gxine). Maybe this solves your problem quite easily...
