about half the time, I can't pinpoint where exactly, when I play a video the video has sound but a green screen.  I may guess when the video is embedded if that is even the right terminology.

 

I have seen several posts, answers, etc all different thus my post.

 

I am hoping it is not the video driver as one post said.   Some videos play.   Wouldn't none of them play if it were the driver?

 

One post mentioned about acceleration??

 

 

My Computer fwiw (I really like it, but this is the second problem in a year)

Samsung 27" All In One Touch

Windows 8.1

11 months old

 

Thanks for anyones help or even looking at this

How are you playing the video? What app are you using? Windows Media Player?

 

What kind of video file? AVI? MP4?

 

Green screens CAN be caused by a bad driver, but bad drivers generally cause the entire desktop to have issues, not just video.

 

This sounds to me a like a bad playback- data corruption of the video file itself.

Ok do you know if your Adobe Flash and Java are up to date?

 

http://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp to verify latest Java version.

 

http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player.html for Adobe Flash.

Also, what browser are you using?

Thank You

 

1.  I goto the page and it won't let me check it.  It says in Windows 8 and 8.1 you can only check in Desktop mode.  That is the normal windows mode, not the Big Tile page, correct   That's all I use

 

2. 

Your Flash Version
12.0.0
Your browser name
Internet Explorer 11
Your Operating System (OS)
Windows (Windows 8) actually 8.1

Ok have you tried video playback in desktop mode??

 

I don't use any of the Metro apps, and I haven't had any issue.

Yes none of those problems occur in Metro mode. Only desktop. That's all I use. Why won't it let me check Java when I am already on Desktop?

I read in another forum that it may be someones graphic driver but if it plays in Chrome wouldn't that not be the case?   I also read that an Adobe Flash update has caused this, but have not found how to fix this.

Thank you very much.  I actually did a refresh which took me back to Windows 8

 

I have updates set to ask me which ones

 

I went to those locations and didn't find those folders.   Would that be because I am not on 8.1 yet?

 

Thx
