Frame skip appearing in the middle of the screen? Asus Radeon hd 7770


Jan 23, 2013
Hey, I bought a Asus Radeon HD 7770 (Upgraded from a Raedon HD 5450) a few days ago. Put it in my
computer yesterday, everything going fine and I opened up a video using Windows Media Player, it would
cause some disrupting lines. It's most noticeable when the camera is moving or when something or
someone is moving between half way of the monitor. I tested many videos.
I screenshotted a scene where it was flickering and it is there when I pasted it into Paint. It looks like either
the bottom half or the top half is a frame faster than the other?
However, I found out that using GOM Player completely fixed this issue.
I even put WMA and GOM side by side while playing at the same time and it clearly shown GOM wasn't doing it.
But I would like to know if anyone else has had this issue and should I be concerned with it?
I've played several games and they work wonderfully.

I know about tearing in gaming but not really when watching a video. I don't know if there's a vsync setting in the player or control center for video playback but you could look for that.
