Video Tearing with 8800GTS

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have an 8800GTS 640mb, rest of specs in sig.
I'm using forceware 158.22, but had the same problem with the previous version too.
Whenever i watch movies or videos i get tearing accross the picture. Its not too noticeable when not much is happening but in action scenes its really distracting. Does anyone have any ideas on how to sort this? I have already uninstalled the drivers and used a driver cleaner to get rid of them completely then re-installed.

Does it happen when you play games?? Are the videos your watching HiRes?

It is most likely the lcd screen if that is what you have. Bump up the refresh rate or enable vsync.

I have a CRT.
It doesnt happen in any games, and they are just normal res movies.
Interestingly, i just watched video using VLC media player and no tearing, so it must be sonmething to do with Windows Media Player.

If XP, you can use Windows XP Video Decoder Checkup Utility:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

Try Googling and downloading a "XP Codec Pack" or "Vista Codec Pack".

Ahh yea, thanks DuckieHo. Nero had decided to use its own codecs which are incompatible! I got a pack from http://www.xpcodecpack.com/ and it works good now.

CASE SOLVED!
