Information on brightness problem with intel graphics. Noticed on Intel Extreme Graphics 2(855GM)

Problem description

Some of you may occur a problem when using X video extension (xv).

Possible solutions

xvattr

The easiest solution that will affect all players is using xvattr to change contrast and other attributs. For example: # xvattr -a XV_BRIGHTNESS -v 0

Configuration for individual players

Some players may allow user to set this in configuration files. For mplayer you can just add line:

brightness=0

to ~/.mplayer/config file.
