Windows 7: Amazon Unbox Player problem

Amazon Unbox Player problem

I have this really strange issue with the Amazon Unbox Video Player which I have had since I first downloaded the player last year to watch some free Video on Demand TV shows that Amazon was giving away free.

The Unbox player will download the files fine but when you play the files, the image is zoomed in and stretched, making it unwatchable.

Does anyone here use the Amazon Unbox Player with no issues?

Attached are 2 screenshots, one of the video playing on the website and the other from the Unbox Player.

I'm not using this player, so I can't tell you how exactly to fix it.
However, you can always un-install and re-install the program. Then the default (the good) settings should be restored.

Turn off DirectX Accel

Go under preferences, advanced, and uncheck the DirectX Accel option. Restart the player and you should be good to go.

IE9 - slight problem with images/videos on Amazon
Hi. When browsing Amazon in Firefox, simply moving the mouse pointer over one of the thumbnail images of a product makes it the main large image, and product review videos play as they should. In IE9, however, neither of these things happen - not even clicking on a thumbnail image makes it the...
