  1. This is a problem that has surfaced recently I don't know why.

    If I take a snapshot with VLC, colors on the picture will be all wrong. Red will become bllue, green will turn purple and vice versa.

    The first pic was taken with png, the second was taken in jpg format. So the problems lies in producing png. Strange thing is it wasn't doing that before. I've been using vlc for screenshots for a while and it recently it started to do that. I don't know if it because I installed something but I have done so much things recently in video and hardware department, so I have no idea what's causing it.

  5. Ok, I think I have found some clues. All these videos showing these symptoms are recorded in true RGB (Fraps and DXtory codec). Lower settings doesn't seem to replicate the problem and seems to work as it was before. I remember that I forced FRAPS recently to record full RGB. Maybe VLC doesn't output PNG at it full color range?

    Red and blue are swapped (I verified with v. 2.0.7). Looks like a bug in VLC.
