Why am I not getting video in fullscreen for WMV files?
Check for video card driver updates from your vendor, and/or DirectX updates from WindowsUpdate. If that doesn’t help, turn down your hardware acceleration. If you’re using WMP11 on Vista, either double-check for driver updates (directly from your video card vendor as well) or try turning off “Use video smoothing” in WMP’s Tools:Options:Performance menu. Also, if your system has an Intel Express Chipset, be sure to get the driver updates from Intel (which will fix crashes, glitching, and no video showing up.) If you’re using WMP7 or newer: Open WMP’s Tools:Options:Performance:Advanced menu dialog. First try turning off overlays, and then if that does not help, turn off the Video Mixing Renderer. If you’re using WMP6 (mplayer2.exe): Open WMP’s View:Options menu dialog. You’ll see a slider there for “Hardware acceleration”. Turning this down to None often works around whatever driver bug is creating your issue (and sometimes turning it up helps too). Some people have also pointed out tha
