Windows Media Player 11, DVD video, not big enough in fullscreen

During playback of movies DVD with WMP 11 and in full screen, the video does not stretch to the edge of the screen.

I have a flat screen monitor set to 1600 x 900. When I entered the mode full screen the video becomes a bit larger, but does not fill the edges of the screen. In other players such as InterWinDVD player or video Media Player Classic DVD of the CCCP play full screen completely to the edges of the screen (except for two black borders on the top and bottom do wide screen of culture).

However in WMP 11 200% is not big enough. I was wondering if it is possible to get the video to play 300 or 400% in size?

Here's what I mean:

Notice how the video area (Pink) is not stretched to fit the vertical edges of the screen.

I really like WMP 11 due to SRS wow effects. Unfortunately, since the upgrade to a monitor flat screen with a resolution of 1600 x 900 WMP 11 the fact that the culture of the video. Other players I use InterWin DVD or the Media Player Classic CCCP do that mean the culture of the video. I am running Windows XP with SP3.

Check if you have the plug-ins installed to support the features of DVDs on your Media Player. Windows Media Player is a complete DVD player when combined with a DVD decoder (MPEG-2 decoder) with features such as full-screen video playback controls, ads chapter DVD and integrated pouch.

If you are running Windows Vista Home Premium or Windows Vista Ultimate, DVD capabilities are included as part of the operating system.

    Hello!
    I came across a problem with my dvd on my laptop drive. The program that I use on my laptop is Media player from Windows.

    The problem is that Windows XP does not play DVD movies in native mode. You can
    have a DVD player, but it can only read DATA DVD at this time. In the order
    install a DVD codec to read video DVD discs. First we will
    Install this program from Microsoft and run it, and if you have a DVD

  • Windows Media Player volume control does not work during DVD playback.

    When I play a DVD in Windows Media Player or Windows Media Center I can't adjust the volume with the volume control of the program or main Windows volume control.  Simply sound 100% flight.  It's on a HTPC connected to an A / V recevier, so the only way to adjust the sound with the volume of the receiver control.  When I play any other type of multimedia (avi, mp3, etc.) in the two WMP or WMC in the program volume control is working properly.  The interesting part is, when I play a DVD using VLC Player or Cyberlink Power DVD the volume setting in the program as well as the main Windows volume control works correctly.  This leads me to believe it's a software is not a hardware problem.  I think that WMP and WMC using the same "engine" so the same problem knocking them both.

    Other info:

    Windows 7 64-bit.

    Windows Media Player 12 version

    Audio is routed to the receiver via the digital coaxial

    For what it's worth, this same problem occurred with the same exact material when I'm running Vista 32 bit.

    All other software is the latest version with all updates installed.

    Any ideas are welcomed and appreciated.  Thank you in advance.

    Hello

    Reinstall the WMP and WMC application and see if it works very well.

    1. open the Control Panel -> programs and features.

    2. click on Windows to enable or disable features in the left pane.

    3 expand the multimedia features, disable Windows Media Player. Click Yes to continue, and then click OK to exit. Then restart.

    Note: If you turn off your WMP, Windows Media Center will be off either. You may need to reconfigure the settings for Windows Media Center after her reactivation.

    4. open or turn off Windows features turn on again. Functionality in Windows Media Player and Windows Media Center. Turn it back on.

    5. launch Windows Media Player, initialize the program.

    PS: If you turn off your WMP, Windows Media Center will be off either. This does not happen when we choose to turn off MCE.

    I had deleted my computer and re-intalled my xp home operating system.  (with sp3)  I have installed wmp11.  I now need a dvd decoder and opionions sought on one that suits.  I've never played DVD on this computer.  I've seen adds for roxio cineplayer, advanced corel which is the cheapest and set-top box to dvdse cyberlink power, but know nothing about them.  All others?

    Also the ability to remove the nav bar for mode full-screen. (zoom would be as well)

    I ask because my brother compuer pro with wmp11 xp allow the video settings or zoom to work.

    I don't know what decoder he bought and he does not remember, so I don't know what to avoid.

    I'll def Standard comercial and burned dvd as well as avi and wmv.

    Thank you, Mark.

    PS please don't tell me not to use VLC.  There is no frame advance.  And is 'not' compatible 'screen Hunter' which I use for making screenshots in 1280 x 1024, which VLC can even begin to do.   (Yes screenhunter makes caps what is the resolution of your computer)

    Hello

    Your suggestions might be. I think you need a codex or right and compatible for Win Media Player or you will need to install another player.

    Sites Web de Microsoft provides own codex for Windows media player. I ve installed the beyond and I'm able to watch all the movies and short clips on the sides of the internet as youtube for example. No problem at all...

    Check this sites from Microsoft and plug-ins available:
    http://www.Microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/plugins.aspx

    But I noticed that many Web sites provide movies that can be opened with flash player.
    I would recommend so also install this player. As far as I know you can find it on the Adobe site.

    Good luck and best regards ;)
