    Recently I've had problems playing video files, mostly .wmv ones. They play, but they look very washed out (and I mean unwatchably so) - colour is distorted. This occurs no matter what player I use (I've tried Nero Showtime, Creative Mediasource, Windows Media Player, etc.). The funny thing is, Quicktime .mov files play just fine in Quicktime Player. I can't work it out?

    I'm using the most up-to-date Windows Certified video driver (nVidia 77.72) - do you reckon is a driver issue? Anyone else had a similar problem and/or have a solution? TIA

    I had this problem and rolled back to version 77.50 but whilst looking for that i found this from here http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=52385&page=2&pp=15

    Video Playback with with ForceWare 77.62 & 77.72 has excessive Gamma values set as default. Videos appear overbright.

    Workaround:

    In the Nvidia Control Panel go to color correction and select color profile: "Advanced mode" for a linear profile with correct Gamma.
