    Hi,

    I i'm running a series of HD trailors on my pc (about 10), they all are the 720p versions but unfortuntely, windows media player always pops out of full screen mode half way through them. (none of them have DRM)

    Anyone know why this is and how to stop it??

    If not anyone know of another piece of software that wll play HD in fullscreen mode??

    Thanks :smashin:

    1. Try reinstalling it
    2. remove the software you don't use
    3.make sure you are running an antivirus program such as norton
    4.make sure you are running microsoft antispyware
    5.Defrag your HD
    6. Make sure your PSU is supplying enough power to your machine
    7. Check your media player settings
    8. Use WinDVD 7, plays wmv-hd at full screen, www.intervideo.com

    Jeez
    That was a bit extreme, might as well have said to format and re=install.

    Ignore 1 - 7, just use windvd or power dvd, both equally as good. Or make sure you have media player 10 installed, just google for any of the above.

    Sounds like you don't know how to use a computer, no offence..., it's a brand new machine like you said, so should work fine..

    When you say it's popping out of full-screen, do you mean it's going back to the desktop, or that the play controls are popping up from the bottom of the screen?

    If it's the latter, it could be your optical mouse moving a tiny bit by itself (mine does this). Try turning the mouse upside down!

    James.

    what's it's doing is exiting full screen mode and displays the video at it's original format as oppossed to scaling the picture up to full-sceen.

    Thanks 4 trying tho
