Just a sly hint you may want to tell more. My machine and software doesn't do that. But here's the hint. I didn't tell you what OS or anything about my machine, software versions and more.
I have something that is mildly annoying going on with my media players. It affects both WMP and Real Player, assorted DVD players, except for PC Friendly, which of course sucks. The video plays in black and white on different players, occasionally color. DVD's stutter on WinDVD, but not on WMP. Streaming video plays only in black and white on both WMP and Real Player. Is there some conflicting program or driver out there that is causing this? ANY help would be greatly appreciated, thanks alot!
