    I tried to play a .wmv file today (since Flip4Mac isn't working yet for Intel!) and the colors were all neon/weird...any way I can fix that?

    Thanks!

    Same here

    Is everyone viewing files on a Windows-booted machine via MacDrive? If so that could be the problem?

    Nope, I put the files into my Windows partition while was running OS X.

    Anyways, I fixed the problem. Go into Tools > Options, then click on the tab labeled "Performance". Where it says "Video Acceleration" (towards the bottom), click "Advanced". You'll then see that the 'Use Primary Surfaces' box is checked. Uncheck the box, and everything should be just fine.

    Huzzah for solving my own problem!

    actually, upgrading to WMP10 fixed the problem for me.
    hope that helps
