Nvidia shows HD Flash videos as blocky (Picture included)

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello.

I have Nividia and Intel cards both are switchable by using optimus software. Using Nvidia graphics the HD flash video in my browser is displayed blocky. When I switch to Intel, the videos are clear.

Here is a picture showing the blocky video. Its only part of a video I took the picture off. Remember this is HD flash video, normal videos I am not sure if this happens or not.



Anyone know how to fix? or what is causing it? I have latest drivers.

Honestly looks like an Anti Aliasing deficiency on nVidia's side... But I don't know how/if that effects flash. Try enabling some AA in the nV control panel and rebooting.

Interesting. I have hybrid graphics on my laptop at home--next time I'm on it, I'll load up some HD Flash videos (do you have a link to what you were watching) so I can see if I notice this as well?

I don't know if/how much the nvidia control panel settings have on flash videos. But this was taken from the Adobe Flash site for flash plugin 10.1:

In some cases, Pixel Bender effects may render as a black square when using hardware rendering. Stay tuned: hardware rendering support for Pixel Bender is expected in a future release of Flash Player.

Because the desktop player continues to use software rendering in this release, pay close attention when comparing the rendering differences between software rendering and the hardware rendering used by many mobile devices.

So it seems that there is a difference in appearance in hardware decoding (i.e. the nvidia route) vs. software decoding (i.e. the intel route).

i find it unreasonable that some intel GPU with crappy minimum performance managed higher video quality than a good nvidia GPU :/
