Default .wmv movies are pink in WMP

The video is pink whenever I hopen up a .wmv movie, also .mp4 movies as well. The only way to fix this is to open a .mp4 file in quicktime, close quicktime then open up the .wmv movie again in WMP. I can't figure out why it's doing this, and how can I fix it? I am using windows xp pro x64 with SP2, and WMP 11.

wow...I'm having the same exact issue. The video turns pink, whenever I use VLC player though. And I have to open another media player in order to have it com back to normal color.

Have you tried VLC player? It's one of the best out there. That might solve it.

Yes it even happens in VLC. I don't know how to fix this other than to run an .mp4 or some other format that quicktime recognizes.

Have you tried using a codec pack. Like CCCP or KLite?

So does this happen everytime, you guys? For me, it's like once a week at least.

Combined Community Codec Pack
Free-Codecs.com : Download K-Lite Codec Pack 3.3.0 FULL, K-Lite Codec Pack 3.3.0 STANDARD, K-Lite Codec Pack 3.3.0 BASIC : K-Lite Codec Pack is a collection of codecs and related tools

That is where you can find those codec's. Personally i have never had this happen to me on either XP Pro or Vista.

well maybe its a Quicktime thing? If you have to run an mp4 first. uninstall quicktime and see what happens. It would be sorta ironic that Apple software would be screwing up windows.
