Took a video with my Canon PowerShot SX110 and transfered it to my computer using gphoto2.
when I attempt to play the video i get a solid green screen and the audio

I'm assuming i need to go find a library for chroma 13. Would i have to make install vlc if that's the case?
Is that all of the output? It doesn't continue past that?
Edit: I asked a silly question that shouldn't matter here because VLC doesn't use gstreamer.
Try searching for that library in synaptic.

In terminal, enter:
apt-cache policy vlc
If the version is from debian-multimedia.org, read: http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=79210
heres the vlc info for my machine
~$ apt-cache policy vlc vlc: Installed: 1.1.3-1squeeze6 Candidate: 1.1.3-1squeeze6 Version table: *** 1.1.3-1squeeze6 0 500 http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ squeeze/main amd64 Packages 500 http://security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates/main amd64 Packages 100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
i'm guessing i need to remove my current version of vlc andre install from thee backports repo?
No vlc in the backports.
Oh, just noticed: you posted in the testing/unstable section - no matter really.
You could download Waldorf and put it on a stick and try to play the files in Waldorf (vlc is there in version 2.0)
Or try a set of other players (mplayer, xine, totem) though that's not really a fix, just a workaround
