All versions are still with blocky pixels when cropping in Windows 7 x64... all versions of the OS as well, using NVIDIA 8600GT. It seems to be a common problem when searching Google.

You should ;)

I was amazed on windows 7 to realize that windows media player with all its new shiny animations and translucent effects still cannot play a freaking DVD by default ... and forward you to a website to BUY a codec to be able to watch it.

I rarely can successfully play a DVD in WMP either... I don't understand why it's not a basic feature in windows??

I always recommend VLC to all my friends. Waiting for the final to come out!
