When I am playing VLC, it is blinking. Impossible to watch.
What can be done?
Can't find disabling acceleration options, recommended in other answer.

I had a similar problem what fixed my problem was that i had the preload mkv's in the same directory option enabled in video/codec settings.
It would make it blink at first then crash vlc entirely. it had no problem preloading in a directory with 474gb worth of 500mb tv shows.
But on certain 12gb folder of mkv files that were a bit over 800mb it would crash.
