    Hello!
    How to get rid of a vertical speckled pink stripe at the right edge of
    every Xvid video during playback?
    Best regards,

  2. With Media PLayer Classic, you could enlarge the picture, to have it
    disappear.

    cheers

    Thanks Martin for your reply!
    The stripe hides a part of the video. I want to see that part too.

    You can't see "under" your stripe. The video information does not
    exist in the copy you have. It is a 2-dimensional image. If you want
    to see what is in that part of the frame, you will have to discard the
    file you have and get a clean copy.

  5. That requires rotoscoping. If the camera is not moving, you are doomed, and
    it will be lost. If the camera does move, you could reconstruct the area by
    copying the missing bits from previous or later frames, overwriting the
    pink stripe. Usually rotoscoping is done by programs like Adobe After
    Effects or Discreet Combustion (the affordeable options), and requires a
    lot of time. It's not a quick, automatic process unfortunately.

    cheers

    Yes, I cannot see "under" the stripe, but others can see, they do not
    have the stripe on their computers.

    Others can see the video under the stripe on their computers. The
    stripe appears on all Xvid videos on my computer.

  8. Ah, then you have a problem with your software. Did you try a different
    player? Did you try a different Xvid codec? Do you have the latest versions
    of them all?

    cheers

    I tried different players: VLC, MPlayer, WMP, WinDVD.
    I tried ffshow. It did not help. I have the latest versions of them
    all.

  10. In ffdshow you should be able to select the Xvid decoder. Do you frequently
    update your codecs? Maybe the Xvid has a dodgy installation. Or ffdshow.
    Or.... uhm, so many steps. Reinstall windows! (just kidding).

    cheers

    Then you have either a bad copy of the video file,
    or something is wrong with your viewer(s). It seems
    like a simple case of differential diagnosis.

    Does your player properly display other video files?
    Can you get another copy of your problematic video
    file? (Like from someone who can play it properly)

    All my players properly display all non-Xvid video files.

  14. Read it in your other mail. I would suggest to follow Richard Crowley's
    suggestions, because it's an elimination process to find the cause of the
    pink stripe.

    cheers

  15. I would also suggest he tries uninstalling Xvid support & reinstalling
    it using a different download source. There are a number of buggy,
    hacked, Xvid codecs out on the web, especially in the multi codec packs.
    There may also be an interaction with his video card driver, so he'll
    need to check that he's got the latest drivers for that.

    The same files playing on other systems points strongly in this direction.

    I uninstalled Xvid codec and ffshow. MPlayer still plays Xvid files
    with the pink stripe.

    MPlayer still played Xvid files with the pink stripe. I have deleted
    the MPlayer. QuickTime player and Real Player do not play Xvid files
    any more. WMP and Nero player play Xvid files with the pink stripe,
    but with video distortions.
    Saved to jpg WMP screen with the video with the pink stripe does not
    contain the video and the stripe, but the player window only. Inserted
    to MS Paint WMP screen with the video with the pink stripe could be
    scrolled, but the video with the stripe do not scroll.
    Best regards,
    Dima

    The stripe disappeared after "disabling all DirectDraw and Direct3D
    accelerations, as well as all cursor and advanced drawing
    accelerations" - lowering Hardware acceleration 3 steps down on the
    Troubleshoot tab in the video card properties.
    The video card driver is the latest.
    How to prevent the stripe with the full Hardware acceleration?
    Regards,
    Dima

  20. Good question. I have an Nvidia-card (6600), and enabling hardware
    acceleration gives me funky looking pictures too. The video plays well
    without the accelaration on, so I leave it off. So I never took the
    opportunity to actually research the cause.

    cheers
