Distorted video during video playback

When I play a video in Totem, MPlayer, VLC or whatever, my displayed windows will look transparent in a funny way. Letters are not readable, colours get distorted and images with a black background (colour 0) will display the partial video in it.
Is someone familiar with this bug, and if yes, what should I do to fix it? It is very annoying… :frowning:

Thanks in advance,


Can you tell us about the following:

openSUSE version 11.?, 32 or 64 bit
Desktop used: KDE or GNOME or ???
Computer Brand & Model
Video Hardware: Intel, AMD/ATI, or nVIDIA with model if you know it

Video display can be greatly effected by your video setup, but the version of openSUSE makes a difference as to what you do. Further, as a possible new user, here is some other info you need to look at:
