Video - 'negative' like view.

Recommended Posts

When I play a news video (see righthand side of page) at this newspaper site I only get a 'negative' like view, although unlike old style black and white negatives, this is in colour. The OS is XP Pro SP2 and this happens using both IE 6 and Firefox 2.0.

I'd appreciate insights into the possible cause and correction of this problem.

Thank you for your reply.

I'm not at all knowledgeable in these matters; all I can tell you is the machine is a Dell Dimension 8400, about 17 months old, and the video card is an ATI Radeon X300 which has not been touched or modified in any way

Regarding codecs, Device Manager > Sound, video and game controllers > Video Codecs > Properties > General, gives this information:

Manufacturer: (Standard system devices)

I downloaded and installed ffdshow [rev] [2006-12-11]. All installation settings were default and it was installed to C:\Program Files\ffdshow.

However the problem persists.

Device Manager > Sound, video and game controllers > Video Codecs > Properties > General, still gives this information:

Manufacturer: (Standard system devices)

Although at Device Manager > Sound, video and game controllers > Video Codecs > Properties > Properties, in the 'Video Compression Codecs' list, there is now, amongst other entries, an entry "ffdshow video encoder"

I notice in the ffdshow start menu folder there are listings " Video decoder configuration", "VFW configuration", and "Audio decoder configuration". Do I need to do something here?
