Hmm. I'm not seeing the screensaver issue any more, but there's
something wrong with video. At least the TED ones (I'm not seeing it
on a youtube video i tried). See for example


and when there is fast movement in the video (like when the octopus is
spooked), I get these odd lines of noise.

In fact, while I noticed the lines in the video itself, it's actually
most repeatably noticeable in the buttons underneath while the video
is playing: make your mouse go back-and-forth between the "rate" and
"share" buttons, and they get corrupted (and it also corrupts the
progress bar).

It looks a bit like the noise you get with insufficient memory
bandwidth, but I doubt that's the case here. Perhaps just some
motion-comp problem?

Any ideas?
