As the title says, I've been experiencing horizontal screen tearing for a while now. It's very small, but I can sometimes catch a glimpse of it going across my screen near the very top (about 2-3 inches from the top of my screen). I have two different monitors and it happens on both of them. This also happens on YouTube as well (it's actually more noticeable on YouTube than it is here). Can anyone help me? I've been trying to find answers, but nothing has helped in my search. I have an NVIDIA GTX 660 Ti video card.

Horizontal screen tear when playing video is normally due to V-sync issues, which sadly, will almost never be fixed in Flash based players because of the frames per second the video was originally recorded at, the frames per second being used by the player to display the video at, and the frames per second your display is set at.

I have a 60Hz refresh rate monitor. That should be enough to play videos w/o screen tearing. I couldn't imagine older Bleach videos being recorded higher than 60 frames......There has to be more to this.

I believe it's more a mismatch between encoded video and playback medium (24 frames don't cleanly divide into 60).

Screen tearing doesn't come from your monitor not refreshing fast enough, just from the refresh rate being different than the fps of what you are watching, in this case, ~24 fps. Most anime is at 24 while a little is at 30, but none are at 60, so some tearing will pop up, mostly in panning scenes.

Should I not worry about it then? I just did a clean install of my drivers (in case it was a driver malfunction) and I don't seem to see any now..

So, does everyone experience some slight horizontal screen tearing in high panning scenes as well? It's not just me?

Typically what I see with horizontal pans is a lack of smoothness, but I can't say I've ever noticed any screen tearing.

By any chance are you a gamer and have vsync disabled on your system? If so, that may be why you see screen tearing but I don't. I would think most drivers would keep vsync enabled for normal video, but I could be wrong.

I am a gamer and I forced V Sync on for a possibility of fixing this. I've tried everything from doing a clean install of the drivers, forcing V Sync on, everything. Nothing seems to be working. It occurs in high panning scenes.

Here's a short GIF of what I'm talking about

http://gyazo.com/76d32c1bdf991c90d7b7f092e027af67

About 4 seconds in, pay close attention to the top of the image. There's a clear horizontal screen tear that appears about 2-3 times.

Mysteriously, I don't get any screen tears in downloaded shows on my desktop. This seems to be a browser/flash problem or something.

Have you found a fix for this? I have been having the same exact issue.

Yes, in fact I have. If you're using Google Chrome that is. What I did was I disabled Chrome's integrated shockwave flash player (PPAPI) and enabled Adobe flash (NPAPI). Problem solved. At least for my end anyway. I think there's something wrong w/ their integrated flash.

I am using Chrome as well, I am in settings but don't see where to go to disable this.

Type this in the address bar
Chrome://Plugins
Hit enter and you'll be brought to several different plugins. On the right, there's a details expand and minimize option. Go ahead and expand the details, and the first plugin you'll come across are the flash players (if you also have Adobe flash installed). Disable the PPAPI and enable the NPAPI. Restard the browser once you're finished. Let me know if it works out for you.

Thanks for the instructions. I think I have done this before, as it is all set up as you said. I think I have it fixed now. I tried doing some googling and someone mentioned turning on Aero in windows, so I went back to default the windows theme and I don't seem to have any screen tearing, on-line or on vlc anymore. Thanks again for the help
