    After I formatted, video clips that are played with Windows Media Player have a horrible quality. Its very dark and red and blue colors glow neon, so people in the videos look like oompa-loompas while you cant see the backround because its so dark. If I opent he video with Nero Showtime- it works normally, but most online video viewing is done with Windows Media Player.

    After the format, I did get a new monitor, I did install my video card driver, and I did install codecs (although I'm not sure I have the same codecs as I had before)

    What could be the problem? Thanks

    reinstall all kodecs, install for example k-lite codec pack (one of the latests one 2.73 as far as i remember), and if it's possible try to reinstall the old ones just before the new installation.

    Well I've tried installing and un-instaling all sorts of codec and codec pack and nothing works- this is really bugging me. >.<

    Will someone that has videos working properly on Windows Media Player and Real Player please list their codecs?

    Have you tried the old monitor?

    What OS is this (xp, 98, win 3.1, NT4, OSuX (jk), etc)

    What format did you create these files? Are these videos off the internet?

    Havent tried the old monitor but the videos work fine with Nero Showtime.

    Windows XP home edition

    Videos are online like CNN videos (but offline as well)- if I download the videos and open with NERO they work good. (Very few will work correctly on WMP or Real Player)

    the problem can be in video drivers, what is you video card manufacturer?
