It's not very common but every now and then, I load up a video from Youtube or elsewhere that is completely unwatchable. The sound seems fine, but the video...

The closest I can describe it is how cable used to block channels on TV. You can see maybe a basic shape of what is going on, but it's extremely distorted. I am gonna try and upload a picture to give an example.

Hello monkeyfish,

Can you give a little more information about your system? What's your OS? What browser/browsers does it happen in? Have you tried uninstalling the flash plugin and reinstalling?

Sup. I use Windows 7 Home Premium and Firefox. I haven't tried the same glitchy vid in IE because, well, I really dislike it basically. I uninstalled/reinstalled the flash plugin once, made sure everything I could think of related to it was up to date, but the problem's still here. Unless it becomes more common (right now for every 100 vids I load, maybe one is unwatchable), I don't want to go through reinstalling Firefox.
