    Question [SOLVED]All my videos are blinking black

    Hi all !

    I got a problem : all my videos are blinking, but the sound is ok
    I can use VLC, Mplayer, or totem, the results is the same, it's blinking black 1 image on two


    My graphic card is "ATI Technologies Inc Radeon Mobility X1400"
    I have enabled the property drivers. It said that those drivers has been tested by the Ubuntu developpers.

    "This driver is activated and currently used" it says, aside a green logo


    What can I do ?
    Thx


    EDIT : see answers below

    Cool Re: All my videos are blinking black

    I just tried to disable the driver, and try with a video. I got the exact same thing. Maybe it don't has something to do with the driver ...?

    with it enabled, try and change your video output mode to one of the others. this can be done in different ways for different players. just try it with vlc or gmplayer. i dont know what the default video out will be but try gl, gl2, x11 whatever. see what works for you.

    You may also have to turn desktop effects off

    System -> Preferences -> Appearance then look under the Visual Effects tab and switch it to None. That has fixed the problem for me in the past.
