    Dark Video

    Many times, not always, I will view a video or even a Picture that is so dark I can only see shapes and even those are just dark outlines? Sometimes just a portion of the video is dark I have also seen wild colors all blended in and see nothing of any sense, Sound is fine.

    Is there a setting that i can adjust? Wonder why it works 'sometimes'.

    I have Win7. This happens both when clicking on U-tube and email pics.

    What type of video are you refering to specifically? (avi-xvid/divx)
    What types of photos? (png,jpeg,bmp,gif)

    Right click on all video and photos at issue to determine their specific file types.
    In order to view videos properly you may need a specific codec.

    The pics are just part of the email. Not attached, I cannot see a file for them. Sometimes when I get these I can see them fine, the on another so dark I can't see what the are? When I click Utube i can see some video fine, then on others dark and just outlines. Not sure how you determine what types those are?

    If the photos in your email are not attached then they must be linked back to a specific site.
    Maybe the photo on the sites end is of poor quality.

    Many videos require codecs to run properly, but not all. Youtube videos will run off Adobe Flash in many instances.
    If the original video & photos are of poor quality there is little you can do about it.
