Windows 7: Windows media player 12 playing half a second faster...

Windows media player 12 playing half a second faster...

my windows media player seems to be playing the visual about half a second faster than the actual sound. how i came about this theory is that i opened up WMP12 and VLC at the same time and got the sound to match perfect, as i would see WMP12 skip a frame faster than VLC. I noticed this when i first installed 7 that there lips were a little out of sync and i convinced my self that it was just the movie, or show. but then i finally did some tesintg. i also noticed that WMP12 plays the shows / movies alot more sharper with better coloring, idk if there is some sort of filtering that they have on which is causing all this or what. here is a screen shot of the picture difference between the 2. later on i will try and get a fraps capture of the videos playing at the same time with WMP12 being a frame faster. I forgot to mention it also lags when i minimize it and bring it back up... then it fixes it self.

Windows 7 Ultimate: Anyone know how to stop WMP from opening and playing DVD movies? This used to be a relatively simple task in XP, but Microsoft have really outdone themselves here, with WMP jumping in and hogging the limelight, even though in my case, WMP can't even play the files. But even if...
