Flicker when watching 2010 FIFA World Cup :)

If you try to open this http://news.sportbox.ru/Vidy_sporta/Futbol/Chempionat_Mira_2010/spbvideo_V-1610-8-iyulya-Luchshiy-gol-YUAR-2010, DF taskbars will flicker 2 or 3 times.

I don't know what the reason, but I think that is because of Adobe Flash player (version 10 was installed).

Can you try updating to the newly released 3.1.10 and see if the issue still occurs:

Yes, I tried this version. Issue remains.

If it could be helpful, flickering repeats when forward and rewind video.

Which version of flash, and which browser are you using?

Does this issue occur only when the video is fullscreen, or does it also do this when in normal mode as well?

Both, in full screen and normal mode.
Seems like it occur with every Flash video.

Hey, Jon!
Maybe, it is individual PC+software configuration issue.
I'd update ATI video card driver and flickers reduced to minimum (but they are still here).

I still haven't been able to reproduce this issue on any of my test machines, which makes it very difficult to troubleshoot. Which version of Flash do you have, and what browser are you using?

Flash says "You have version 10,1,85,3 installed".

Hm. Without DF, there is no problem now. Strange... Maybe, I will record a little video to show it.

OK! This is it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uLy_eFl_J4E
Left monitor is default, firefox with youtube.
Right monitor have df taskbar, and utorrent opened.

I press F5 several times cause camera can record flickering in different ways.

Top-notch video, that helps quite a bit. It appears that an application is being added to the DF taskbar right when it flickers. It's almost like another application window is being opened then closed quickly. Can you enable debug logging and send me the complete log file after the next flicker? Are you using the new "Window Location" feature?

I send you DisplayFusion.log via Support-Mailing Address-Contact Form.
What I do after debug log enabling:
1. View DF Troubleshooting big memo a bit;
2. Open videos on firefox, then close and reopen firefox;
3. Open utorrent on secondary monitor;
4. Jump to firefox again;
5. Stop logging.

Note that I tried youtube.com and rutube.ru videos:
1. Youtube: 2-3 flicks on start playing video;
2. Rutube: 1 on start and 1 on end (closing tab).

"Window Location" is off.

Hi Maxim,

I've taken over this case for Jon and unfortunately neither of us were able to reproduce the issue after hours of testing. My guess is that there's something very specific about your computer that is causing the issue.

While I don't believe we'll be able to fix this issue at the moment, we do appreciate your feedback so please feel free to let us know any time you have any issues at all.

Thanks!

I fully understand your words. I'll surely tell you if this issue will be completely fixed via software/driver update or hardware changes.

I think that is flash 10 + ati videocard issue.
