Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 591059
Some AVI videos are severely distorted

Description of problem:
Some AVI videos are played distorted in applications using gstreamer.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Play http://n.ethz.ch/~smani/download/example.avi example in totem
It appears that one channel (green?) is distorted
Worked fine in f12, also plays fine in VLC. Distortion appears to affect all applicaitons using gstreamer (totem, banshee, ...).
The example video plays fine for me. I'm suspecting this is a video driver issue. To make sure:
1) What GPU and Xorg drivers are you using?
2) Can you change the Gconf key /system/gstreamer/0.10/default/videosink to "ximagesink" (without quotes) and see if that makes it work? (Don't forget to change it back again, it's slower.)

Works fine with ximagesink. Attached screenshot shows problem.
This does indeed look like driver issue, so I'll assign this to them.
I do wonder why VLC works though...

Attaching requested files (have no custom xorg.conf), which were obtained after a reboot + playing an affected video file with debug messages enabled.

As a side note, just noticed that also VLC is affected with a DivX MPEG-4 Version 5 AVI.
