I've had similar problems. Come to find out, the problem was I was using Firefox (mozilla) instead of Internet Explorer. I opened the same exact page with the same exact streaming video on it and it worked fine. Make sure that you're using IE to view that streaming video.

If that's not it, do you have a video card? Chances are that an out of date driver may do that. Nvidia had some video issues with their cards for a short while, I believe with the 6600 series and the 7800 series both early on (early releases of the cards. If you have a video card, make sure that your drivers are up to date despite the manufacturer.

Make sure that you have the latest version of direct x, which I believe is Direct X 9.0c.

Also, just to be on the safe side, check to make sure that a router or firewall isn't screwing with something. Have you tried holding ctrl+leftclick on the link to open the streaming video in a new window? Ctrl+left click should allow popups with IE.


Hope this helps.

So what is the answer to the problem or where did the rest of the forum go? The previous answers does not fix the problem.

I would love to be able to watch movie trailers again. It's little crazy that you would move the thread but not tell us where it is. If you can help solve this problem that would be great. Thank you

Ill Give it a try but it should still work in IE also. Come to think of it, it probably will work in Firefox because I think the problem lies inside of IE or maybe wmp. If we could just figure out the actual cause that would solve the problem for a lot of people. Ill let you know if Firefox works. Thank You

I disabled my video acceleration in wmp 10 and it worked. No more green lines. first I tried it at the halfway mark and when that didnt work I just turned it all the way down. So now Streaming video doesnt have any green lines but I also dont have any video acceleration.

With wmp open, go to tools, options, and then the performance tab. You should see the slider bar near the bottom where it says video acceleration. Just slide it to the none position.

Once i figure out why I cant have my video acceleration on full I will post it. Maybe it is a driver update or directx10. Who knows.
