OK, did that without any options and the very first thing I noticed is

lighter. Or is it brighter. All the shadow detail that was black in
other layers is not visible. There's a trerm for this, isn't there,
the something-gradient?

So that settles the matter, its NOT my hardware, card or monitor, it is
the application or at least the application settings/paramters.

If ffplay can do this without any tweeking, what does it say about the

But I miss having a clear menu bar for controls. keyboard controls
require memory and differ between application.

How do I get to to play the DVD with the on screen menu DVDs have?

Depending on the codec and container all of the video players use ffmpeg
libs for playing movies at least some of the time and mplayer is pure
ffmpeg. The video from the decoded stream is handled differently by
different players.

What video card do you use?

# lspci | grep -i vga
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82Q35 Express
Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)

I would really like to get to the bottom of this problem, I've installed vlc-beta and noticed that it didn't uninstall vlc-codecs and has a conflict with /usr/lib64/vlc/plugins/video_filter/ from the codecs package. Do you still have vlc-codecs installed? After accepting the conflict I still have left over from vlc-codecs :
These may be used by vlc-beta with unknown results because of being built against other libraries.
Maybe you can try purging your system of everything vlc and then reinstalling, meanwhile I'll fix the vlc-beta installation problem but that will most probably take a while. I'd also like to fix the xine-lib issue but I'm rather busy this week can you file a bug against xine-lib with the relevant information, a link to this thread and assign it to davejplater@xxxxxxxxx - user plater
