Whenever I try to play a video file in Totem or MPlayer (I've tested OGV, MP4, MPG), it displays in very odd ways (depending on program). Videos play fine in VLC, Banshee, Google Chrome etc. I think I have all correct the codecs installed.. I have searched the webs far and wide without finding anything, so any help would be much appreciated.
Totem Very dark blue and red (only blue in this image) (yes, that's Mary and Pippin)
MPlayer Very pixelated/chunky. whenever I skip to different times, it will fully load for a frame then the top half will go chunky while the bottom half is fine.
