If you experience a video problem, e.g. intense flickering, after some system updates to a guest OS in VMware Workstation, try disabling the “Accelerate 3D graphics” option under Virtual Machine Settings –> Hardware –> Display –> 3D graphics. This may resolve the problem. If you use Media Player Classic (Home-Cinema) in VMware and cannot play videos, disabling this setting may also help too.
