i'm operating Win7 and using Internet Explorer 9.

i'm having problems with my video with some sites. like nfl.com or msn.com. netflix and youtube work fine.
the video blinks a lot while playing. blinks from picture to black screen. if i can manage to find the fullscreen icon and put the video in fullscreen mode, it will work fine.

i'm assuming i need to update something.
if you need any additonal info, please ask.
any advice is welcome.

Check your Adobe Flash version, and update your video drivers as a start. Check the manufacturer sites, don't trust Windows to update them. Check any other add-ons in IE, if those fixes don't change it.

Are the videos on those sites Flash or HTML5?

Hi -

Please list your Video card make and model.
If you are not sure of how to find this, the easiest method is to download Speccy from Piriform.
This will list all your operating specs including your Video card.
Typical listing of mine.
>> NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT<<
>>Current Resolution 1280x1024 pixels<<

Thank You -
EDIT - Also as per above, since Adobe Flash needs to be kept updated -
You can also see if the items play better on IE 8 -
