I watch a colleague's show reel regularly which normally runs very smoothly. Suddenly it has begun to judder, as it it vibrates with the bass music. My colleague tells me it is running perfectly well on other peoples' PCs. Any idea what could have happened?

You could try turning the computer off, and restarting it but instead of starting it in normal mode hold the F8 Key when it begins to turn back on till you see a screen with several options and Select "Safe Mode with Networking"

This is a good way to start the computer up without all the extra programs and problems that it normally has. And thus a good way to tell if it is the computer or the video.

Simply restart the computer again and let it do its own thing and it will return to its normal state on the next boot.

So does the video use Windows Media Player to play?

Are we talking about a desktop or a laptop? I've seen a laptop with a shaking screen once when it had a loose video cable in back.

-Does it always happen with this specific video?
-Can you recreate the problem with any other video(es)?
-Does it happen with sound on or off? (With speakers or headphones only -- or both?)

I'm just trying to narrow down some possibilities.

Tried this. Still jittery but not as bad.

I'm thinking it could be something related to a video codec -- is this a video that you are streaming through flash or silverlight? Or did you download the video file, and you're watching it that way?

Pretty sure that it's being streamed through Flash, which I have updated.

This problem is now sorted. For the benefit of anyone interested, today I updated to Firefox 4 and voilą, smooth video. Must have been browser related problems.
Thanks for your help, anyway, guys.

I'm glad the problem is finally fixed :)

It may even been a known issue, and was fixed in a newer edition of firefox.
