Problem with watching my DVR recordings on the computer

When watching my recordings they keep blipping or blinking on the computer but not when watching tv. Watching live tv on comp also the same. No problem with Netflix or any  other format, Had a tech come out but could not fix problem

try a different computer or perhaps reboot the PC and try again.  Might try connecting via ethernet to see if the problem clears up (would point to wifi issues). some windows updates in progress may interfere with watching video, too.

The Chrome issue might be caused by Adobe Flash; do you have to activate it when using Chrome?

It appears that the problem is the latest Chome update. Tried it on Micro Edge and it works fine

chrome's flash is its own version and is fully sandboxed.

chrome uses its own version of flash within a 'memory' schema that isolates it from seeing or being seen by other processes. the flash can't communicate outside of chrome.
