Sorry to bother you again Michel.

It seems the video I was playing was the cause of the blockiness.

Instead of an OTA recorded video I am now using a dvdrip and playback is smooth
in all three cases.

I am really sorry for the confusion. It's just the recorded video I chose at
random had stuttering on some parts.

As far as I'm concerned I can settle for any of the options you gave me.

Unless you deem it worth looking for the black screen's cause with vblank/sync
enabled, I'm willing to try anything you ask me to.

Anyway, thanks a lot for your help.
