My Movies Have Lines Running Across - Help!


In attempting to speed up my ubuntu 8.04, I set the display color depth to 16 bits per pixel from the previous default value of 24. As a result, my system runs smoothly. BUT now, a grid appears across movies when I play them. How do I remove the lines/grid without having to revert back to the default color depth of 24 bits per pixel?

Just to let you know, the lines disappear when I play movies at fullscreen. They re-appear when I reduce the movie window size.

So the graphics card is "Intel Corporation 82852/855GM Integrated Graphics Device". The second part of the question is what driver is used. It means to look in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and find the Device section of the file and look what is in the driver value.

Hey Matthew. In reply to your second question, here's the answer:

Section "Device"
Identifier "Intel Corporation 82852/855GM Integrated Graphics Device"
Driver "intel"
BusID "PCI:0:2:0"
EndSection

Hello,

This could also happen if you have an option called 'Visualize motion vectors' enabled within the player. I had a similar situation in SMplayer. Just a thought.....
