    Do others with 2011 MBP have the same glitch? When playing a video with VLC... resizing the video or making the video full screen causes teh video to show a split second of random graphical glitches... then revert back to normal after.

    I just want to make sure others are having this random glitching as well to make sure its not some defective graphics card.

    I've never had such a problem with my PC and find VLC to be quite stable.

    Just a quick update, with the latest update to OSX, the random graphical glitches are officially no more! Thank goodness, I was thinking of returning my MBP or getting a replacement.

    this only happens when i manually change the graphics using gfxcardstatus, i know exactly what you mean re full screen, it doesn't pop outwards, it sort of... goes all squared and in my case green.

    i tested it with leaving the graphics to dynamic switching and rebooting and it didn't happen after.

    YES! I get this a lot on my 2011 MBP - particularly when making youtube videos full size. I get random graphic pixel glitches for the briefest of seconds and then it goes back to normal...

    I got this too, switched to MPlayer OSX Extended and haven't had it since

    I had it also, but since it wasn't a debilitating bug, I just figured it was due to a glitch somewhere, either on the driver side or VLC's side. Glad to hear that 10.6.7 seems to fix it (downloading now).
