KMPlayer Problem - Display Artifacts/Pixelated/Ghosted Screen

Problem with KMPlayer and bad video reproduction is occuring more and more frequently. Best description  would be that there is a problem with rendering because video is pixelated, with artifacts and ghosting. It is usually manifested when seeking video.
There were some attempts to fix this problem by changing render engine.
You can do that by right clicking KMPlayer display area, going to Video (Advanced) --> Video Renderer and choosing different renderer than one currently selected. This didn't work for me.
If this does not work for you either, here is a real (possible) solution that you might try.
Go to Options --> Preferences (right click KM Player display). In preferences window go to Filter Control --> Decoder Usage. In section for choosing Usage of Internal decoders activate Only use if it fails to play with system default. Hopefully this will solve your problem.
Please leave a comment and share your experiences!
