Video app is flashing black while playing some videos

Made video with Sony TX-10 camera. Rotated movie and uploaded to XZ. When playing the movie in the XZ-app there is a "black" flash (video is faded out and then in during less than a second) and this is repeated every 3-4 seconds. This does not occur when playing movie on PC.
Quite anouying!

Video recorded with the phone is not affected.

how do you rotated the video and which format are the videos?

I used "Free video flip and rotate" by Digital Wave.

MP4-format:
- AAC audio 48kHz
- MPEG-4 25 fps

Works fine on PC, TV and other units/players.
VLC-app installed on XZ will play without "black flash" so I'd say the issue is in the internal player not being able to decode properly..
