WMP 10 Problem

#1
Recently when i try to video mpeg files in WMP they seem washed out and really white. When i view them in another player, they are fine. I tried to re-install WMP 10, but no luck. Any ideas?

if you are using nvidia drivers 77.72 do this
NVIDIA Overlay gamma controls under Standard mode do not work
properly, resulting in overly dark or overly bright video.
To work around this issue:
1 From the NVIDIA control panel, click the Color Correction menu tree
item.
2 From the Color Correction page, click the Apply color changes to list
arrow and select All, then click Restore Defaults.
3 Click Apply.

A fixed WHQL version will be released on the 22nd apparently, it was most likely just an oversight and you can always use previous drivers.

I've seen so many threads on so many different forums (neowin at least 2) about this issue it's crazy. I hope Nvidia fixes it soon (like EP said) but the work around isn't that difficult and I can wait. :)

(god forbid) codec packs recently?
I use the K-lite codec pack and have always known that for some reason codec packs are bad...but I've never had a problem installing and using every build of the K-lite codec pack since it came out.

Any particular reason I've heard so many bad things about Codec packs yet I've never had a problem with the one I use.

This is one thing I've been confused about cause I hear bad things but stubbornly keep using them because I never have a problem

Codecs packs cause conflicts. If you have to many of the same thing it's hard for the program to decide which to use .. Also, most cases, you will never use all the codecs that come with the packs.

that makes sense. I was thinking that since I only use the same pack and uninstall and reinstall everytime that that is why I don't get any conflicts. From now on though I will make sure that after my next format and reinstall of windows I'll just get the codecs I need.

Just because I haven't had any problems doesn't mean they won't show up at some point. Thanks for the advice Johnny and Netryder
