Do you have a computer running on Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 and are facing issues like video flickering while playing DVD’s with subtitles? Don’t worry as this issue is not related to your computer and is identified to be Windows related issue. Microsoft has confirmed that this problem occurs because of an issue in the way that the Enhanced Video Renderer (EVR) handles subtitle notifications. Because of this issue when you configure Windows Media Player 12 to display subtitles when you play a DVD, the video image flickers every time that a new line of subtitle is displayed.

Microsoft identified the problem of “video flickering in Windows 7” and released a fix that will solve the issue. As described in the KB975806 this hotfix will replace the Enhanced Video Renderer DLL (evr.dll). To apply this hotfix, your computer must be running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.
