Re: Come on Microsoft and fix DVD playback in WMP 11

Well if it's a problem with AVI files too, it's certainly not a problem with just DVD playback....

Are you really having full screen playback problems across three discrete systems? Are these underpowered or something? I'm wondering what's uniquely wonky about your set of systems. Mentioning VLC - and testing with AVI - implies that other random stuff might be on the PC. What about straight up WMV files full-screen?

Speaking for myself only.
See for some helpful WMP info.

Hi---My main card is a Ge force 6200 agp x8 with the very latest Vista
drivers loaded. Other laptop has Mobile Intel 945GM Display adaptor and
other pc has Matrox g550 dual head again all with latest drivers. I tried to
play some AVI files that I had and even these are jerky when at full screen

I'm on Vista and don't have any problems with playback. What video card are
you using? Are the drivers up to date from the vendor?
