Try this:

Turn off hardware acceleration for the video adapter:

Right-click on desktop >> Personalize

Click 'Display Settings' >> 'Advanced Settings

Click 'Troubleshoot' tab

Click 'Change Settings'

If 'Change Settings' is greyed out it means the driver for your video adapter does not allow changes to acceleration.

A newer driver may allow the change to be made, or you may find a newer driver fixes the video playback problem without making any changes to it's settings.

The nVidia drivers page is here:

Easiest method is use Option 2 on the web-page by clicking the grey button 'Graphics Drivers'
