Thread: No Full-screen

  1. #1
    I've currently got a problem where whenever I play a movie in any player, the actual display of the movie only takes up the bottom left corner of the screen are (e.g. In fulscreen the movie is displayed in only a quarter of the screen, in normal mode the movie takes up the corner of the screen box. I've tried loads of movies and they start OK for a couple of seconds then shrink. This included new movies and old ones which previously played OK). I've got the current KLCodecs and a variety of players incl. BS (where movies are inverted!?&#33. There was nothing I installed / uninstalled etc.. which coincided with this.

    Can you try to be a little more decisive in regard to what media players your actually using then maybe we could help you better.

    Or it could be a problem with your video card or your screen resolution setting.

    BS PLayer, Windows Media Player, RealOne Player, Ultra player.

    The strange thing is it's Ok some of the time then just shrinks. The rest of the screen is fine - i can have the players fill the screen or in a box yet the actual part of the screen supposed to display the movie is only utilising the lower left quarter. I've messed about with '100%, 200%', 'full-screen' etcc.... adn resize to 'fill screen on opening' etc.. When I've figured out how post a screendump I'll post it.

    Anything else I use is fine - just movies and then not consistantly.

    Here's screen dumps of what it looks like in 'fullscreen' then in the player window (I think the way I got a screendump was a bit messed which effected the quality of the pictures but the positioning is the same):

    There's a setting in windows media player that does that. Something about "allow full screen resize" or something like that. Problem is, the menu changes and it's a bitch to find it again. I just looked again and it's not on mine(WMP9). It may be one of those first run menus or something.

    Thanx, although.....
    I've found that menu and even though that option is ticked it still happens
    Initially, sometimes, the movie does resize but then a few seconds later shrinks again.

    Edit: I've tried on loads of players (not just WMP9) and it's exactly the same effect.
