I've got two suggestions:
1) Change your X resolution. Sometimes running at a too-high resolution will
cause video playback problems of various types.
2) Check your settings for using (or not using) the same resolution for
playback as for the menu screen. I'm afraid I don't recall precisely where
this option is located, but it should be available somewhere. If this
option is checked, un-check it or modify the settings for the target
resolutions for your common recording resolutions. If it's not checked, it
might be a convenient way to test target resolutions instead of mucking
with your X configuration, or even using this setting instead of changing
the X configuration.
