see attached pic.  Whenever I want to watch a youtube or play any video on my XP Pro PC, within IE, it is split into 2 copies of itself, one on top of the other.  How to get it to stop this?  Also, I log onto Go to Webinar each day and also other similar types of internet meeting space/confernce type things and wonder if that has somehow jacked up my video viewing?

in the list of archived installers, I see 2/8/11 and am assuming that is the one i have that is causing the problem?  How do I know which one I have, so that I don't download and reinstall the same one?  I am thinking the one I want is the next one back dated 11/04/10

Tried this. When I uninstalled, I restarted and then installed the 11/04/10 version.  When I went to youtube, the video wouldn't play and said the version of Flash needed to be upgraded.  So, I upgraded and am back in the same place, split, dual video again.

yes, closed all programs, ran uninstaller, then restarted, then installed the 11/04/10 version.  When I launched IE and went to youtube, it said I needed to upgrade in  order to veiw the video

I have learned that there is always browser compatibility problems .. a lot of cloud computing works better in one browser as opposed to another or not at all..
also there is google chrome...they all live nicely on the same machine

Try going into your Account settings, then to Playback Setup and under ... How
do I turn off the new "split-screen" effect from resolutions
if that doesnt work check youtube help about your video drivers are outdated
Playing videos are split by a horizontal green line with identical/parallel video images above and below it.
