Regarding video display

Hi,

  I have the angstrom distro running on my beagle board . It has
MPlayer which I have used to play a mp4 file and streamed it
through s-video cable to TV. My video is colour but I am getting a
black and white video displayed on my TV. Please help me out to get
acolour video on TV.

Thanks,
Abhishek Kumar

First thing to check is your cable.
One of the pins carries the luminance signal (Y) whereas another pin
carries the colour signal (C).
If your cable is faulty this is the expected behaviour.

The video plays properly when viewed over dvi?
