Fixing Blue Tint Video (Linux Mint 13 and Ubuntu 12.04)

Open 'gstreamer-properties' by typing into a terminal...  
$ gstreamer-properties 
 Click on the 'Video' tab. Under 'Default Output' choose the 'Plugin' dropdown and select 'Custom'. Add the following line to the 'Pipeline' box. 
videobalance hue=-1 ! autovideosink
 If that doesn't work, it might be worth turning off  'Xv optimizations'. Under the same tab choose... 
X Window System (No Xv)  
 If this method doesn't work... try the following here.
