Video Tip

by DrDOS

This is going to be a big help for people who have problems playing videos and are getting washed out colors with too much brightness. The dev people might want to look at this too. What I've found is that modifying the driver preferences for the X11 server will give much better quality with Kaffeine and Mplayer.

For Mplayer, to to Preferences, Video and choose the:

X11 (Ximage/Shm) drivers.

For Kaffeine player go to Settings, Xine Engine Settings and choose the:

opengl drivers.

I've tested all the available ones and these give the best results.
