On some video files, the sound will be perfect but the video will flash on and off, it's really annoying. I'm using Windows Media Player 9 for 2k pro, anyone else having this problem?

what video files?? DivX? Real media?? different type of files require different codec to run properly. The key is to install the right codec for the right type of file.

Basically, for DivX and MPG, use nimo codec (search on google for download site), for Real media, use Real player, for ASF, use Windows media player (it updates itself w/ the latest codec), for MOV (or QT), use Apple QuickTime.

Hope this helps.
