    I'm getting a huge amount of horizontal tearing in Media Player Classic that doesn't seem to go away unless I turn on D3D Fullscreen which creates a fullscreen playback that can't be minimized, with no context menu or on screen dialog and must be completely exited to get out of full screen. which is awful. It also occurs in the embedded firefox flash plugin.

    I've updated my dX and video drivers,
    how do I stop all this tearing?

    Two different issues. The MPC issue is likely related to the codec being used. Uninstall/reinstall, experiment with codec configuration/tweaking (not recommended), or use a different media player. For the Flash issue, try updating Flash and/or enabling or disabling hardware acceleration.

    Hmm, well I tried reinstalling my codecs and updating my video driver and it didn't work. :(

    Test using a different media player. Try using VLC.
