In Microsoft Windows Media Player 10, you play a multiple-bit-rate video stream. When Windows Media Player 10 thins the video stream by selecting a lower bit rate, the video may invert and turn green.
When Windows Media Player 10 thins the video stream by selecting a lower bit rate, sometimes Windows Media Player 10 must resize the video. When Windows Media Player 10 resizes the video, certain video formats give a negative size. This problem occurs because negative sizes are not appropriately handled in the underlying Microsoft Windows Media Format components.
