    I've been having major problems with Windows Media Player 10. The problem is
    that in the middle of video playback (file playing from the hard drive, not
    streaming), the screen will suddenly washout, turning green during the video
    play. I'm wondering if anyone knows how to fix this problem. If so, please
    advise.

    I can't seem to successfully install Microsoft's "hot fix" either, ..here is
    what the "KB898549.log" file says:

    My video card is an NVidia FX5900 SE, and this same problem had occurred
    while testing many different versions of NVidia's official drivers, ...and
    yes, I completely got rid of all traces of the previous installed drivers per
    NVidia's driver removal instructions prior to installing a newer version.

    What happens, is whenever a video file is being played, it really will occur
    at almost anywhere, ...sometimes at the beginning, near the middle, and other
    times somewhere near the end.

    Okay, here's the real kicker of it, ...one other time when I had this same
    exact problem, (..but this had been a really long time ago) I'd found a forum
    where a thread about this same issue, and about half-way down that page
    somebody chimed in and posted a fix for it by using "reg edit". However, I've
    spent many hours looking for that same web forum, but I can't seem to find it
    again. (Argh!!)

    Please advise.

    Thanks a million!!!

    Geesh! I'd posted this question early this morning, and had hoped to find
    anyone that may have previously dealt with this particular problem in Windows
    Media Player 10, and could tell me how I might be able to fix it. C'mon you
    guys, if anyone can please help me with this, I'd be very much appreciative.

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Robin,

    I wish I could help, I'm having the same problem that you are having, I too
    am searching for a solution. I also have problems with poor playback of HD
    video clips even though my system is more than capable of handling them. If
    you find a solution, please post on here so that it can be shared.

    Thanks!
