When I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 on the same computer as my Windows 7, it shows videos a little darker than usual. I have a Dell laptop. The problem starts after about 10 to 15 minutes into the movie.
Go to the Power Manager:
And Slide the Display bar to a higher value and/or uncheck Dim display when idle.
