Windows Media Player

What would be causing WMP to play my movies and videos in black and white instead of color?

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

Are you sure you are not watching old westerns, or Sin City or something?

Check your advanced overlay settings in the display control panel to make sure that the saturation isn't turned all the way down.

Some are AVI, some are MPEG. I've got the latest version of media player so the codecs should be downloaded already.
