When playing any XVID movies, I get random bolcks of color appearing for a few seconds. This happens 2 or 3 times during the movie. I thought it was the player so returned it. The new player does the same thing, plus it won’t let me move files around - my previous player would.
Have you tried playing the file on a computer?
Usually these color things are compression issues from the creation of the file.
Have a try with VLC ( www.videolan.org/ vlc/) and see if the colors appear there as well.
I have the same problem with every Xvid I play. I did chcek it on VLC player, and two others and no problems. I have a philips media player which does not have the same problem. Any other thoughts? Is there a encoder that works better than others? Or perhaps settings that work better.
