Now that I have your attention, is there no way to stop this damn flicker problem?
I find it hard to believe that there is not a single soul in the linux community that has been able to overcome this issue.
One interesting fact I found is that upon the initial install of the nvidia 6111 drivers, and prior to a reboot, everything works great! No flicker, smooth avi play, smooth dvd play. However as soon as I restart X or reboot the machine, it's a HP zd7260 laptop w/ fedora core 2, the flicker starts and dvd and avi play fails at each flicker.
I have also found that using "xrandr -s 800x600" will allow dvd playback, but I am still having issues with avi playback.
Does anyone have any info on updated drivers or at least that nvidia is working on the problem?
I hate having to return to windows to watch a simple avi, qt, or mpeg file.
