Ubuntu Video Troubles


Well I'm finally got Ubuntu 7.04 working like it should but I find it quite annoying that when I play a video (of any kind) that I get lots of "squares" when i go into full screen mode. I tryed the player that comes with ubuntu (Totem) and with VLC and the results are both the same. Now the thing is i did not install my graphics card in any way, it just installed and it worked, so do I need to install the graphics card to get rid of the squares or is there another trick? If so please could somebody forward me to a good tutorial on how to install GeForce 6 series cards.

Thank you in advance!

I have no explanation for that, never had that problem. What type of video card do you have? I doubt that is the issue, but I guess it could be.

Don't know what link you're following, or if you are, but this one might help...
