    On most of my videos (.avi) I periodically see a flickering or flashing green line at the bottom of the video picture when viewing in full screen in VLC media player (and others)

    I am running:
    Apple MacBook Air 13", 4GB RAM, Intel HD Graphics 3000 processor.
    Mac OS X Lion, fully updated
    VLC, fully updated.

    I have searched on Google and seen possible solutions ranging from updating graphics card drivers to altering the de-interlace mode. These solutions did not work for me.

    This issue (flickering line) also occurs on other media players on my current MacBook Air. So I have a feeling that it is not just a VLC issue, but may be an Air issue.

    Please help?

    Are the videos all h.264?

    If it's the graphics card, something may show up in /var/log/kernel.log when it happens.
