Subject: [gentoo-user] Adjusting brightness on videos. kmplayer in particular.
Date: Fri, 25 Sep 2009 06:58:11
1 Hi,
3 I downloaded CSI and a NCIS video a while ago. I'm trying to watch it
4 but it is really dark. I am using kmplayer with mplayer for the
5 backend. I found where it says you can adjust brightness and contrast
6 but they don't do anything. The screen looks fine outside of watching a
7 show. Here is some emerge info just in case I missed a USE flag or
8 something:

36 I also checked the monitor itself and the brightness is all the way up
37 to the max. This is a older system but I have a Nvidia FX-5200 video
38 card which generally works fine for me. Am I missing something?
40 Thanks.
