    I got my new MacBook Pro today but it keeps flickering Its hard to explain but it mostly happens when Im watching a video on hulu.com thats not full screen or when I'm screen sharing it also happens to the movie widget that comes the leopard. Do I have a faulty computer or is it a setting?

    EDIT:its a 15 inch glossy screen if that helps

    Is the whole screen flickering? I have the same new MBP and sometimes when i'm watching a flash-based clip or viewing a flash-based website I get white boxes flickering on video. It also happens when i'm using the iTunes store. I restart the computer and it doesn't do it for a while.

    The interesting thing about it is that it doesn't affect DVD viewing or movies with iTunes. It only seems to happen with YouTube videos and videos on NBC.com, all which I believe are flash-based. It's strange that it stops doing it after a restart. Could there be something about they way flash interacts with the new processor? That doesn't seem to make sense. Happens across browsers too (Safari, Firefox, Camino)
