sometimes if the video is corrupted it can display all sorts of **** sum times.
Green screens, different colored blocks, etc
Are you using an Nvidia gfx card?

If you are you could try to disable DirectDraw Acceleration.

Open QuickTime player
QuickTime Preferences
Under Video un-check the box that is marked “Enable DirectDraw Acceleration”

Then try it.

Or is it in another media player that it happens?
IT will more than likely be codec related.

Download and isntall VLC (Video LAN) and use it as your media player for video files.

IT has all the codecs your likely to need built in to it.
