If red and blue appear to be exchanged, you can try to correct
the error by using the "hue" control of the players.

Either you have accidentally changed the hue in your players
and the settings have been saved, or (quite probably) there is
a bug in the players or graphical drivers.

Also try to see if there is any difference between mplayer
with -vo x11 and with -vo xv.

Testing vlc would be another data point.

Best regards.
