Ok desten .. last thing :PP i always recommend MPC HC but the point is in settings. To escape from that mode just ctr+c or alt+x. If u want normal behaviour find D3d fullscreen mode and turn it off!!. For best settings go to MPC HC forum or if u need really help, ask me.

One question

Isnt your build of Win7 for Ultimate?
Ultimate has build in codecs, as well as HD. Installing third party codec packs can cause issues. Vista/7 Ultimate versions include out-of-the-box codecs for.avi and others (except for blu-ray)

I understand Sirdan, and thanks for the tips. But thing I dont understand is, why do I have to manually do this things in W7? is it programmed that way or is it the same for everyone? compare to XP, I didnt need to configure anything myself, I just need this to be clarified.

Yep rive0108, it`s the ultimate build, and I am aware of that w7 contains a lot codecs it self. That`s why I am avoiding alot of codecs, trying to stick to stand alone MPC or VLC.

Try to change video renderer to Haali, from VMR9 to Haali.

I'm using KMPlayer... options/preferences/video processing/renderer

Good luck!

Where has this been noted/discussed? As I'm aware (after many postings and findings of similar and undiagnosed issues), there exists no understanding of why this happens and/or how to fix it.

Are you saying the pro version should not have this problem?

Ok i have found an workaround for this.. hope this helps..
my previous os was vista, lappy: acer aspire 5738g, intel t6400, nvidia geforce g105m cuda 512 mb..

had same problems after installing win 7 ultimate rtm..

1) if u change ur graphic drivers back to vista version.. (not for win 7.. means no latest)
everything is fine..

2) weird bug with win 7 or graphic card cause change in video renderer setting after installation (i use kmplayer, weirdly vmr 9 (windowed) becomes the renderer) and it cause pixalation..

wouldnt recommend haali cause its not compitible with win aero and theme changes to basic , which takes out the charm of aero..

PS I THINK its graphic card (nvidia) and win 7 compatibility issue..
so change video renderer to vmr9 (HQ), or evr or evr (c/a)..

I actually installed an early 181.* version of my card for Vista and it didn't help anything. So that may be a hit or miss solution.

This worked for me

I know the OP had problems with graphics card drivers. But just in case this is a problem with your chipset drivers, I found a solution (915 chipset).

Resolution problem with Intel 915

I think you can try updating drivers for your chipset series along the same lines.

Hope this helps (...and I hope this is not way off topic)
