Fix Blue and Green Tinted Video Problem in Ubuntu: I was having this video problem in Ubuntu that happened after an update. The video images became tinted with blue and green colors, or were having some kind of distorted video hues when played on Totem Movie Player as well as other media players. Check out the screenshot below to know what I mean:

That was pretty annoying isn't it?

I also installed other video players like VLC, Miro, Mplayer and others but the same thing happened.

The cause of this issue could be the use of Nvidia closed source driver, and since this bug hasn't been addressed yet, here's a quick fix for now when using Totem:

1. Press Alt + F2, and then run this command: gstreamer-properties

That should open up the "Multimedia System Selector" window.

2. Click on the "Video" tab and select "Custom" from the "Plugin" dropdown menu.

3. Add the following line inside the "Pipeline" text box and just close it after:

videobalance hue=-1 ! autovideosink

4. Make sure to quit Totem and reopen it for the changes to take effect.

No more blue and green tinted video problem after applying the fix.
