    Here's the deal, when loading almost all videos they play in a red haze. Like there's a serious contrast or color issue. I've tried using the newest KLMcodec's as well as the old, VLC Media Player, Winamp, Windows Media Player, and nero's crappy player. All pretty much show up in a red hue. I did get a video to work last night but didn't do anything other than open and close the program 3 times...there shouldn't be some mysterious unlock procedure. Any ideas or suggestions? All other programs or anything appear totally fine. Just loading videos and divx's

    check your video driver's overlay settings. maybe you adjusted the hue and/or saturation.

    that worked because the player defaulted to vmr since only one video can be rendered with overlay. vmr is unaffected by the hue, contrast, brightness etc settings in the drivers.
