I have Client Hyper-V enabled and failed to reproduce the issues. No issues with video playback.

Different hardware and drivers could make it hard to reproduce.

Also with the Window colour set to Black I cannt read the text on the title bar, it doesnt glow white like it used to in Win7,

Where is the quality control at microsoft these days? Why they leave that like this? Even the window control buttons not visible with black...

Hello,

I have few issues coming into mind now, I have listed them below:

1. Three icons those are Up, Create, Menu are not visable in open window. Software is real apk. I'm not sure its software fault or os. However, had no such issue in windows 7.

2. Thumb buttons on PowerDVD 12 taskbar thumbnail isn't showing. i.e previous, play/pause, next. However, it works fine on Aimp, WMP and etc. Of cource its the software fault, even though I'm using latestest version which says windows 8 supported.

3. In Windows 7 when I click bottom right corner, it would take me right to desktop but that thing isn't working in windows 8. I need to press within the show desktop button. Not outside the screen corner. Its fine when we are free but on busy works, this thing makes annoying. :(

Will post more later.

Thanks...
Best Regards

All videos play fine in VLC, it's a slight annoyance because sometimes I have record video games and use Movie Maker to edit them, Movie Maker only gets a black screen and audio with any video footage too. I ignored the issue in the CP and RP because they were just betas, now this is RTM I can't ignore them anymore.


I know this is a bit off topic but try using Fraps in combination with Virtualdub, and a good X264 or DivX compressor. Much better results IMHO

Do you have Hyper-V enabled?

If so, this is likely causing your issue with video. Your options are to let the issue persist, or disable Hyper-V.

Without Hyper-V enabled, I haven't heard of any issues playing video.


How do I disable Hyper-V? I thought that was only for Virtual Machines?

Not sure if its a bug but in the desktop I.E 10 when you close a tab the other tabs double in size before shrinking. Strange behaviour.

To be fair windows 7 didn't display text on explorer's title bar to begin with, I wish I could disable the text all together.

Noticed this as well since RP.

I noticed too if you have multiple monitors you still can't snap an app to one and open another one on the other monitor. When you open the second app the first one collapses and shows the desktop.

Many people have had this issue with Hyper-V, and it is well known.

It is the only reference to a substantial issue involving video playback that I have experienced, or heard of.
