Is this movie from your own DVD, or streamed from elsewhere? If elsewhere, it could be the resolution of the source - something you can't control.

Make sure you have the latest drivers for your Intel video graphics.

The "pixelated" effect you see in the video is due to the video renderer used by whichever program you use to play video files. I would suggest that you change that.

You could download Media Player Classic - Home Cinema and install it. By default, MPC-HC uses the EVR renderer which does not create the effect you're currently experiencing.

It could also be that the video card you have can't produce the sort of quality you want from it. This is just like the problem some people have when they play a Blue Ray on their computer and they see the same pixel problem.

Hi jhoiemarie
I think Lemur had the answer to this. You say the video clip "Came from your computer". But looking at the clip would suggest that this is not a home movie from a camcorder. I think it was downloaded to your computer. That being so then it is important to know the resolution of the original clip. If you right click on the file in Windows Explorer then choose "Properties" then click the "Details" tab you should see the size in pixels and I would guess it is something like 640 x 480 pixels. If the pixel size is not shown then you will need a video analyser, this will do the job:

Hi, I have faced this problem with certain files too. I agree with the person who suggested a renderer problem. The same file that would appear blocky like that on VLC player would appear fine on BSplayer for me.

The answer to your problem is now revealed. The video clip that you have is only 624 x 256 pixels a little smaller than my estimate above. When you show this clip in full screen you are "stretching" each individual pixel in the clip to your screen resolution which I guess is something like 1280 x 960 px. So to fill your screen you are zooming to 400% of the original. That's why you get the pixelation. There's nothing you can do about that.
With a very sophisticated video editing software you could improve the view slightly by playing with the contrast and some other filters but at the end of the day "You cannot make a silk purse out of a sows ear"

,hi. actually the movie is not only my problem. my screen is kinda "pixilated", the screen is a bit jagged as well. and when i open a picture or a wallpaper, same thing happens. i mean, it is very different from vista and xp. i had used those OS before and i did not
have any problem with regards to the graphics. my laptop is 14.0 inches 16:9 HD LCD, by the way. this laptop is designed for this latest OS from MS, and with the Intel HD Graphis it should work fine, right? I wonder why I am having this kind of issue.

,thanks for taking time to red this,btw. any help will be again appreciated. Thanks.
