Question Video distortion when viewing stream

Hello. Recently I've been having some problems watching streams in livestream. The problem just recently started up. I use firefox, and have tried every other browser out there and they all give me the same issue. I installed new video card drivers and that also did not solve it. I reinstalled firefox, and even all my firefox addons, still, no luck. It also crashes firefox every so often. here is a screen shot of what my view of livestream looks like...

If anyone has any suggestions, your help is much appreciated.

thank you

That would be a very cool effect if it were deliberate.

Have you checked other channels and you're seeing the same thing?
If so, and it's affecting other browsers, you could have a problem with your Flash plugin. Maybe uninstall and then reinstall with the current version from Adobe's site. Then reboot your computer.

Yeah, I've tried reinstalling flash and have had no luck. It's been happening on all channels. Still stuck for now anyway..

Have you checked YouTube as well?
I just want to eliminate the Flash plugin itself as an issue.

Yes, Youtube works without any issues. It's specifically Livestream that gives me this problem. Although, I have tried UStream and it works half the time. The other half it gives me the same distortion.

This is odd. If YouTube is OK then your Flash plugin is OK.

Just to make sure it isn't something with FireFox try using Internet Explorer 8 or Google Chrome. If the problem persists then it would seem to be a system based issue.

I'm wondering if it's a setting in the graphics card otherwise.

Yeah, all other browsers do the same thing. I've also reinstalled graphics card drivers a while ago in attempt to fix it and it did not. I have a Nvidia GeForce 8800gt graphics card. Running windows 7.

Go in to the Advanced settings of your graphics card and change some of the settings. I can't suggest what to change since I don't know the specifics but that's one place I'd look.

Right, like adjusting the frame rates or even refresh rates, if you can.

SOLVED! I took a look at the advanced settings and everything seemed in order, until I realized I had downloaded the 32bit version when i'm running 64 bit w7. So all it took was installing the 64 bit drivers. Fail on my part, but I greatly appreciate the advice! Thanks everyone!
