You may experience a color smearing or bleeding effect when you play MPEG4 videos in Windows Media Player 9 or 10

In Microsoft Windows Media Player 9 or 10, you may experience a color smearing or bleeding effect when you play some MPEG4 videos. This behavior often occurs when the video contains fast-moving scenes of varying colors.

This problem occurs because of an issue with the way that the MPEG4 codec handles motion vectors. Sometimes, the decoder mistakenly uses invalid motion vectors.

MPEG4 content may be blocky when you use the Windows Media Player

When you play back certain pieces of MPEG4 content, the rendered video may appear blocky.

This behavior occurs because the MPEG4 decoder does not correctly put a boundary on all quantized coefficients. Therefore, the decoder uses the wrong prediction direction, and the video looks blocky.
