Most videos thru Coreplayer have smearing, screen tear, especially during fast scenes

    I'm trying to get videos working well through Coreplayer, but I keep getting this screen tearing/smearing/glitching effect, especially in fast paced scenes; only ones that work well are the ones I stream through SMTube. Because of this I have to switch to XBMC for movies/TV shows which doesn't have this issue but can stutter badly, especially on high-definition content. Anything I can do to fix this? Thanks.

    What file type are you playing specifically, what codec, quality etc?

    The file I first noticed it on was a MP4 using the CoreAVC codec; its resolution was 640 x 352; but I realized that it was also visible on an MKV file using the same codec and a resolution of 852 x 480. However, on an AVI file with the CoreASP codec and a resolution of 624 x 352, I don't see any.

    Maybe an incompatibility with that iteration of CoreAVC then? Due to it's age, Coreplayer does have problems with certain files, for me it's usually 3gp and AVI.

    Perhaps; would there be any settings I can change to lessen the effect?

    Not that I know of, most of the advanced settings are to improve performance rather than fix incompatibility. When I come across a tricky file I switch to VLC or Mplayer.
