Default Movie brightness problems

I recently formatted my pc.
I use to have some old Quake 3 vids and WoW videos before i formatted my pc.
so yesturday i re-downloaded them, and also re-downloaded Divx, winamp, the Xvid codecs and all installed fine.
Played a World of warcraft movie i had never seen before, seem'd a bit dark,thought it must be the movie, So i tryed one i have never seen before, again very dark.
Tryed 3 other movies, The movies plays but it is so dark and barely see able!
So i tryed them all in Winamp exactly the same problem and windows media player, but i dont understand why this had occured, all game,desktop etc colours and brightness seem fine.

Can any one recommend a solution to this problem?

Thanks in advance

Try reinstalling the video drivers or try another version.
