    I've been running a trial version of WinDVD 8, which is marketed as
    Vista compatible. And in fact, it was working perfectly until....

    I installed ffdshow. Now the picture and sound are jittery and not
    synced and the app seems unstable. I wonder if any of the 9,823 codes
    ffdshow installs could be the culprit?

    I installed it based on another post I'd read that implied I needed it
    for codecs I was missing (like DivX and some .wav files).

    Curiously,

    Uninstall it the problem program. Reinstall WinDVD.

    I use Nvidia PureVideo Decoder. It's not free.
    There is a trial version.

    For other codecs I may need I use K-lite Basic or
    K-lite Standard. You really don't need the full version.
    During setup you can do a custom install and pick what
    you want, uncheck ffdshow if it is checked.

  3. I have WinDVD version 4.5? When I start it up, it turns off aero glass.
    Does Version 8 do that?
