ubuntu and vlc — make default and hue

When I capture HD video with a Pentax DSLR, and view it using VLC, it looks wrong - the green grass is purple, and the golden retriever is blue.

This happens with VLC, Totem, etc. There's nothing wrong with the files themselves - the exact same files play fine on the mac or the PC.

Is there a way to fix this?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

This seems to be related to this question. Since you are using vlc, did you try the steps mentioned in this answer ?

That didn't solve the problem, unfortunately. Image would not display at all when I change the hue according to those steps. – chris Oct 6 '10 at 1:34
