Display may flicker when playing back videos

Some video displays may flicker or go blank when switching between playing video inputs in vMix.
This may be caused by one of the following:
 
1. Content detection issue on GeForce graphics cards
 
To resolve this, open the NVIDIA Control Panel, go to Adjust desktop colour settings, select the monitor and
towards the bottom find the Content type reported to the display setting.
 
Change this from Auto-select to Desktop Programs, click Apply at the bottom right then restart the computer.
 
2. HDMI signal fault
 
Certain video content may cause the HDMI connection to lose signal with the monitor.
Try replacing the HDMI signal, making sure it has a solid connection to both the monitor and graphics card.
If using a display port adapter, it may need to be replaced.
