So I've been searching the web all the past week for some answers. Here's the problem:
On the computer I'm using, suddenly every mpg/avi/Anything NotQuicktime movie I'm trying to watch has turned BLUE. Colors seem to be inversed for the most part, and everything has a blue tint to it. There's a lot of people asking about this problem, but I can't seem to find a solution.
These are videos like the Star Wars EP 3 trailer, and the new Zelda Trailer - both in Windows Media format being screwed up. The only real advice I've found is to try switching from 16 to 32 bit color but that hasn't helped.
Now that I've had time to sit down and deal with the various parts (upgraded the CD-RW to a DVD-RW, added a 60 GB hard drive), I have what could be a very functional PowerMac G4. It appears to be the AGP graphics version, no gigabit Ethernet.
