    video playback flicker

    I was watching the livetune redial video and noticed massive video flickering in both vlc / movie player :\

    This was not the case yesterday, but i did update software but just security packages.


    Heres where it gets tricky: I had the same problem with 12.04 (i did a clean wipe of computer and installed 12.10) but it was just a minor transparent flicker at the top of the video that i could stand. This flickers in the middle of the video chopping it in half. So this could also be a hardware problem and not software. This computer has just a massive amount of power and it should not flicker when viewing 1080p videos. The cpu on all cores almost never goes about 9%

    I got a intel i3 b570 lenovo laptop. This is just so frustrating because i spent so much on this laptop for 1080p videos and it flickers.

    /* I contacted lenovo and I had 2 days left on warrentie so im getting gpu replaced. I doubt its a software issue and feel its more of a hardware problem. */
