If I play a video on MPC its fine, but if i play a YouTube video or Facebook video it flickers...is there a fix for this as ive literally fresh installed this 2 days ago and nothing but problems with it and thinking about loading my win7 backup back on.
running latest nVidia driver
edit: also youtube videos 60-70% of the time wont play straight away and have to wait 10 seconds
system is 3.6Ghz Core-i5 / 8Gb / GTX650 / Samsung 850 EVO 250Gb
the only real problem I am having sense upgrading to win10 (from win7 home) is the first time I open a video in IE 11 or Edge the audio is fine but the video is a green blur. If I close it and reopen the video all is good.
Having recently updated to Windows 10, I am astonished (annoyed) to discover Windows 10 does not play WMV video files, particularly those created using Windows Movie Maker. There doesn't seem to be very much advice on this on the net and the following is short list of the tried and failed suggestions:
•Turning on/off WMP through Control Panel>Programs>Programs & Features>Turn Windows Feature On or Off. •Repeating the above then restarting my laptop twice, after which running sfc/scannow at the Command Prompt. •Disabling / enabling "Turn on DirectX Video Acceleration for WMV files" in WMP Options. •Troubleshooting Fix via Control Panel>All Control Panel Items>Troubleshooting>All Categories>Windows Media Player Settings - this just returns the message "Configuration settings might be set incorrectly" - but doesn't expand on what settings are wrong.
I also came across this "FIX: Updade to enable DirectX Video Acceleration (DXVA) of Windows Media Video content in Windows Media 10" at [URL] ....
However after downloading the 'fix' (Download the WindowsMedia10-KB888656-x86-Global-ENU.exe package now.) it doesn't install - instead I get the error message "Not enough storage is available to process this command."
I'm on a Sony Vaio Pro 13 running Windows 10 64bit. Ever since upgrading to Windows 10 I've been experiencing strange horizontal distortion on the right half of the screen while viewing videos through any internet browser. The issue seems to be confined to YouTube ads (actual videos themselves are fine), news websites, and other websites whose video encoding is presumably similar. I've attached a fairly shoddy image I took with my phone to demonstrate the issue.
I have upgraded and tried reinstalling any driver that I thought was feasibly connected to video playback to no avail.
So, Alienware sent me a replacement M18 last week with better specs than my old one. I had this issue on the old one, but chalked it up to the other problems it had. This laptop has been in my hands since last Friday. The issue is, video play back of any kind, any browser and any app causes the entire system to hang. It forces me to do a hard reset every time. Everything else works perfectly. Absolutely no issues with any video game. I thought it was maybe gfx related but nVidia said it wasn't and get with Alienware.
Before I went to them, I thought I would try microsoft support techs... After remotely connecting they suggested a fresh install of the os. So now my pc has a completely fresh install of the os and still has the problem. The issue happened before and still remains after updating all drivers. I just finished talking to alienware support. They connected remotely, checked all the drivers, ran several diagnostic tools and said everything looked perfect. The tech suggested the cpu is spiking in temp and they would send someone to replace the heat sink.
But the monitoring software he used shows the temps to be around 68C to 75C even when I recreate the issue and it hangs the last reading is normal. So I don't think their solution is correct. I'm attaching the Sysnative BSOD Dump + System File Collection App and Administrative Events. In this info, I recreated the issue at 10:50am according to the computers clock. It just doesn't make sense that a brand new computer would have this problem, especially when everything else works just fine.
Any video that I playback that is on one of my HD/SSD pauses but the audio continues, then after 10-15 seconds the video cuts to where audio is or fast forwards. Does not happen with short clips but with movies or tv episodes.
I have recently upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7, and have found 1 very annoying problem, any time a small video plays on a website in any browser my computer completely freezes. I cant move the mouse pres Ctrl, Alt Del. nothign works i have to hard reboot my PC. 1st i had thought it a video driver issue so have updated them but yet it still happens, i have played videos through Plex and have watched a few episodes of a show back to back and no problems it only seems to happen in a browser.
This began when I was having issues with my headset and I decided to just uninstall all of my sound drivers, I manually installed my headset drivers and Windows installed the rest on it's own. I then found out it was just the usb port so I plugged my headset into a different one and all was good there...
The problem now is that the sound in my monitor(TV) will randomly just stop working and videos will start to stutter unless I switch to a different playback device, even when I go to do that the sound window takes a long time to open and can be unresponsive.
Uninstalling the driver and restarting my computer fixes all of these problems momentarily but they inevitably come back.
I am running Windows 10 Home 64-bit. I have an Intel HD Graphics card and a NVIDIA GeForce GT 735M. I have had an issue for a couple of months when viewing videos or footage from my built-in camera. Half of the screen appears fine, but the other half is filled with horizontal blurring bars. This happens with a lot of videos, but some appear okay. The attached image is an example from today on YouTube.
I have problem after installing full build on 29.07. I was on preview builds from 10.06 till official release date and never before had same bug.
So, when I delete folders or files from desktop or other palces my taskbar icons flicker. And they flickr only if Recycle Bin is empty; if there are already icons in Recycle Bin there is no flicering. If I prevent files to go in Recycle Bin, (disable Bin) there is no flickering after deleteing files!
Recently I bought SSD, made fresh install and is bug is still there..
I updated to Windows 10 and now whenever I log in all I see is my desktop with no icons. After a few seconds it starts to go black for a second then back over and over. I can boot into safe mode. I fixed the problem but then my networking shut off.
I updated windows 10 to build 10041 and every 3 minutes my screen flickers black. I checked my settings and my refresh rate is at 60hz like usual. Also when it flickers the window that was open closes.
When I start up a game or even sometimes Chrome. It will start to flicker and say that its not responding really quick, about a second. Then at some points it will start flickering constantly really fast.
Since upgrading to Windows 10 I've experienced cxonstant screen flickering during gaming. I can only really describe it as a weird fluctuation of brightness, in horizontal lines, up and down my monitor. On Counter Strike it seems to have been somewhat solved through V-Sync but I'm trying to play other games and it is making them completely unplayable.
I have turned V-Sync on through the Nvidia Control Panel and it has done nothing. I've tried running games at various different graphical settings and it has not worked. I have also tried running my monitor and PC from different power sockets just in case the PSU is somehow interfering and it has done nothing.
I have also experimented with running my monitor at different hz but I only have the option to run at 60hz.
I updated my Windows 7 to Windows 10 few weeks ago. The update process went well, atleast it looked like it. After the update i started having weird freezing problems. It looked like that some process took 100% of my cpu but i was unable to see what process it was.
Anyway sometimes this problem occurred several times in a row but after trying enough Windows 10 started OK and everything looked fine.
Now few days ago there was some updates installing and i got the same freezing problem. I had to restart my pc from the start button. After that reboot i was unable to start Windows. I can see the Bios logos and i can enter to bios but i cant load the Windows. It get stuck before the Windows logo. All i can see is the black screen with flickering cursor ot top left corner.
I can see my disks from bios and the boot order is OK. I have also tried F8 to select where to boot but no luck. I cant even start on safe mode.. (no selection). Tried to load bios default. No luck. Tried with Hirens boot cd. No luck.
Now I am able to start some Linux workaround from Hirens Boot CD and can access to my C: Drive..
I am not having any Win 10 DVD:s so i cant try any repair installation. (im trying to borrow DVD somewhere). Win 7 DVD/repair is not working.
I have been struggling for several days with screen flickering in Windows 10 2 days after I upgraded. I immediately tried to return to a previous restore point which made no difference. I then tried to use the safe mode to try to figure out if some software was causing the problem. In doing so, I uninstalled several programs to no avail. Consideration was also given to the display card.
Looking back, I now know that the only software that was installed was AVG anti-virus. I spent most of last night trying to remove all traces of it, even as far as cleaning out the Registry, but the problem still persists. The PC is completely useless as the start menu cannot be accessed.
I upgraded my Lenovo U310 laptop from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 a week ago. Everything seems to have upgraded successfully. The only problem that I can find is that none of the video streaming from Windows 10 apps can be played. I get an error 'Unsupported video type or invalid file path' when I click on a video article in USA Today or when I try to stream video from any other apps, NBC News, MSN Money, etc... from Windows 10 store.
I have no issue streaming videos from any of the browser though. What could be missing that could cause video streaming to fail?
Since installing Windows 10 my video picture is upside down and there is no sound. I can see the other party correctly but neither of us can hear. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Windows 10. Windows Media Player works ok. Skype Echo 123 doesn't work.
I was trying to mess around with a few things in the sound settings so that I could get audio to play through my headphones. While doing this, I disabled my speakers that were plugged in. Now, I want my speakers to return being the main sound playback device.
I have recently bought a new motherboard (ASUS Z170 Pro Gaming) and a new CPU (i5-6600K). After I formatted the system to start fresh, I installed a minimum of drivers before upgrading from Windows 7 to 10. Now, the problem is that EVERY time I playback any kind of sound (music, youtube, or just the speaker tests in Windows), a brief crackling or scratching noise is heard although the audio quality afterwards is fine. When playback stops, the same crackling or scratching sound comes once again. If I open youtube and keep a video open in a tab, the crackling/scratching noise never comes. If I close the browser with the youtube video open, the noise comes.
So far I've tried this: - disable all sound effects (under enhancement in speaker properties) - change the default format to the lowest (16 bit, 44100 Hz) - uninstall and reinstall the Realtek High Definition Audio driver - tried different headphones, earplugs, speakers - tried different audio ports (front and rear)
I'm currently not sure whether the problem is caused by Windows 10 or the motherboard, although I have not tested it in Windows 7.
