I've recently installed Mint and it's my first attempt at linux - so very much a newbie. I'm generally very impressed - However,
Video playback keeps breaking up. I downloaded VLC player in case it was a problem with Movie player but exactly the same thing happens. Google Earth breaks up exactly the same way as well.
I've gone to Multimedia System Selector and with the video default output plugin set at autodetect the test screen shows exactly the same problem. When I change it to X Window System (No Xv), the test signal is perfect.
However, when I then go back to any of the media players I get the same thing again.
Does anyone out there know the probably obvious step I missed?
