ReLive 17.4.1 (possibly earlier) - Recording with Windows Aero results in flicker/oddities

Issue: video playback of a recorded session flickers with a splash screen or blank white/black. Similar results on Far Cry, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, UT2004. Did not encounter on Halo: Combat Evolved, XCOM 2.

Fix: Disabling Windows Aero results in perfectly smooth playback (possibly DX9 specific with Win 7?).


With Aero enabled: Far Cry - Crimson ReLive 17.4.1 with aero enabled - YouTube

With Aero disabled straight afterwards: Far Cry - Crimson ReLive 17.4.1 without aero - YouTube


Went to submit a bug report but the redirect just hung, so submitting here to let people be aware.
