bad colours playing movies in totem-gstreamer with xv output driver

Bug #174782 reported by infodroid
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
totem (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: totem-gstreamer

Playing movies in Totem under Ubuntu Gutsy does not render them in their correct colours. If anything they look blue.

Play any movie in Totem. I have tested different formats such as ogg mov avi mpg.

Force gstreamer not to use xv driver: gstreamer-properties > Video > Plugin: Change "Autodetect" to "X Window System (no xv)". It is worth pointing out that mplayer renders all videos correctly. Also VLC will play them correctly for x11 and opengl output drivers.

To solve this problem temporarily you need to change the gstreamer configuration:

Type in your console: gstreamer-properties

Now go to Video -> Default Output
and select plugin: X Window System (without Xv)

Finally restart the windows manager for the changes to take effect.
