Re: My Divx has no color
Try uninstalling your current codec and installing a different one. Your sig says you have both Ubuntu 7.10 and Windows XP installed? If you have a different OS, try running your DivX files in that OS and see if they work (could eliminate the possibility of a hardware error).
EDIT: oh, You said it worked :P Hardware issue's out of the question
Hmm...Try reinstalling the codec (try using the official DivX codec), try reinstalling your video card drivers, try reinstalling Vlc (Vlc uses it's own set of codecs if I'm not mistaken, so it shouldn't be affected...maybe a driver issue?), and also try the Omega Drivers.
