    I'm getting a bloody annoying problem with playing AVI's through ZoomPlayer. DVDs don't show this problem so it's not the VGA-->RGB cable or Powerstrip of the TV. It's only when playing AVIs. The top left corner of the screen tears visibly kind of seperating the top left of the screen like this ...

    Code:
    +--------------+
    |    /         |
    |  /           |
    |/             |
    +--------------+

    Are you using the VMR9 overlay ?

    I got tearing with VMR9 but not with the ordinary "Overlay"

    Try switching to the ordinary overlay. Or if you don't want to do that then try installing ReClock ( from www.doom9.org ).

    To make sure ReClock is being used by Zoom set the ReClock Audio Renderer to be the one Zoom is using.

    I cured most tearing this way.

    Umm I don't remember, I'm sure it was normal Overlay, I'll check when I get home, I'm also already using Reclock. Thanks for the ideas though :)

    No use :(

    Whether I use VMR7/9 or standard or mixed I still get tearing. I'm already using ReClock, could if be config problems with that?

    I left all the defaults for Reclock when I installed it.

    To be certain it is tearing - whilst AVI is playing push Zoom into window mode. You will see the Reclock clock in your system tray. Double click it. At the bottom you will see an option box to do a tear test. Tick it. Make the Zoom window full screen again.

    Now you will see a vertical line panning across whilst the AVI plays. If this breaks at any point you have tearing. If it stays true and vertical at all times you have not got tearing.

    I also use ffdshow for most of my Zoom codecs. How have you got Zoom configured to replay these AVIs ?

    If I right-click and choose filter properties and bring up the Reclock filter and tick the tear test option I get pink lines left where it's tearing. I know it's tearing anyway because I can see it ;) I'm not using FFDShow for any of my codecs. Any ideas on how to solve the tearing?

    What codec are you using then ?

    You could install ffdshow and use that to see if tearing goes - beyond that I haven't got any other ideas.
