When I play videos on Youtube in minimum screen or middle-sized, videos are normal. However when I play them in fullscreen the video is oversaturated (has too much contrast and light).

The same happens on any video online, not just YouTube.

It also happens when I play any video with Windows Media Player at any size. When I play movies with other players like MPC and VLC, its fine. I think some settings for online playing and Media Player are screwed up. Any ideas?

    Operating system? Did you install additional codecs or something? – slhck Apr 19 '15 at 10:18

    ^ a ffshow filter could do that, or your video cards software, so what video card is it? For AMD there are 2 different color adjustments one for "desktop" which is all the 2d stuff, and one for the 3D which is anything rendered 3D style including videos. – Psycogeek Apr 19 '15 at 10:48
  • May be worth adding more information regarding your setup. What OS and hardware are you running? Have you updated or installed anything recently related to the graphics or video playback? – Joe Apr 19 '15 at 12:03

I solved this problem by adjusting the settings in my graphic card.

The option for making better picture was on. I reverted it to the original settings.
