Today I updated my QuickTime on Mac OS 9.2.2 from what it was originally at to quicktime 6. When i was playing movies off the internet they either played in black and white or lines of color but it was mostly black and white. I can't get a movie to play in color. can someone please help me figure this out . any help would be appriecaited.

First thing i thought of

are you running at thousands of colors, or millions of colors?

Try changing resolutions, or chaning the level of colors. try 256 colors also.

If your still having the problem after that, then try reinstalling with 9.0 or 9.1, first trying the default quicktime, and then quicktime six.

Lastly, if it still does it even with the old version(s) then try other video programs, it may very well be a hardware problem at that point.(I had a laptop at one point that worked perfectly fine exept with animated things/video. the problem was barely noticeable untill you played something)
