    Can you check if this still is a issue with a fresh SVN?

    The problem I can see from your log is:
    01/04/2006 13:55:34 Dvdplayer9:disable line 21
    01/04/2006 13:55:34 DVDPlayer9:failed vmr9 not connected
    01/04/2006 13:55:34 DVDPlayer9:cleanup DShow graph
    01/04/2006 13:55:34 1 vmr9:Dispose
    01/04/2006 13:55:34 VMR7Helper:AddVMR7
    & it's the VMR7 that gives flickering screen.

    There have been some fixes around this lately so it could be gone.

    Flickering problem still exists.

    However, the other problems have gone away.
