    Try the latest version of flash player (11.6.602.180) Adobe - Install Adobe Flash Player

    It's worse with the latest version in FF even with acceleration turned off. 10.3 plays it perfect on HD4k graphics with acceleration on.

    Suggest to re-install the video driver in safe mode Youtube video quality problem. Is it just me??

    did you test in chrome or ie, chrome has no problems

    I think it's the plugin and how it reacts to different systems. I ran that vid on my main rig which is a clean pro 8 install with latest flash plugin using ATi HD6850 and it did the same thing. Killing flash acceleration fixes it in FF. As for the laptop no need 10.3 fixed it.

    No I didn't test it on my main HTPC I don't use chrome or explorer. The laptop's explorer also did the same before I installed 10.3. So to me that tells me it's a plugin issue as usual when dealing with adobe flash.

So I've decided to record me covering a song today, but about 30 seconds withing the recording the sound quality just drops and sounds like something was placed over the mic giving it a muddy sound. Any way to fix this problem? Thanks in advance! c:
Whenever I go full screen on youtube it looks terrible. I have searched and searched and have no idea how to fix this. Can't even find someone with a similar problem. Blurry and 256 colours. Something similar happens to the desktop when I leave fullscreen from VLC or VirtualBox. That makes sense...
Checking my audio quality levels, I noticed my default setting was 24bit 48000hz (studio quality.) Is that a setting I should continue using? The only sound output device i'm using are only a pair of Skullcandy ear phones, in-regards to that i'm assuming such a level isn't needed for playback....
I have alot of mp4 music videos that I would like to convert to wav or flac. Can anyone recommend the best software for doing this on windows 8?
Since installing Windows 8, the audio quality in any MP4 files is distorted and echoes. This happens regardless of what player I use to view them (You Tube, iTunes, Media Player). If I play a professional video in You Tube it is OK. All other types of video are fine and all other sound output...
