Hi Alexander,

the visual impression is that of a red-shift, all colors look a little 
more red on PNG than on the MPlayer output.

Here's a side-by-side PNG screen-print. With a color picker you can see 
on the left the PNG with max. red~230 and on the right the MPlayer 
output with max. red = 255.


The movies are created with "TMPGEnc Video Mastering Works 7", with 
these settings:

Color Profile >
YUV Format: 4:2:0
Color Range: Compressed (16-235)
Color Depth: 8 Bit
Color Space: Automatic (ITU-R BT.709)

It seems as if on the MPlayer display output the compressed color range 
is uncompressed correctly, on the PNG the scaler used seems to display 
the still compressed color range.

Best Regards
