Description Mark Allyn 2006-06-21 09:18:37 UTC
This is an email that I have received ragarding a bug report filed wiht Ubuntu:
This information is also in ubuntu's bugreport.

I installed Dapper and I chose i810 and results in a working X. However, 
whenever I play video, the colors are distorted very much.

I tried with mplayer and found that if I switch the video driver from "xv" 
to "gl", then colors will be ok, but very slow. Of course, totem won't let me 
switch the driver either --- Where has "Multimedia System Selector" gone?

I cannot test using Breezy since it hangs somewhere during booting the Live CD.

It's hidden by default in Dapper, along with some other useful stuff (have you
missed the System Tools menu yet?). Don't ask me why. :-/ You can reenable it
using the Alacarte Menu Editor (in Accessories).
