How can i get a good full screen image using Media player

Discussion in 'Computer Information' started by Mighty Magpie, May 2, 2004.

  1. I have Windows XP Pro and use Windows Media player 9 - my Graphics
    card is a GeForce FX5200

    I have 512mb DDR and AMDXP1700 - I have a 19" TFT monitor

    When using Media player 9, if I accept the default screen size, the
    image quality it good but the screen is too small for my liking.
    When I try to view video images, (such as music videos or animations)
    in full screen mode the picture quality is quite jagged

    Is there some plugin or another programme/utility that I can obtain so
    I can 'get a good, clear picture' in full screen mode?

    TIA

    the reason the picture looks "jagged" is because the video compression used
    to record the video is too high for a quality full screen image. If you want
    better video, use better quality video files. Of course they will be larger,
    and take longer to download though.

    What you can do is drop your resolution to 800x600 or 640x480 and then go
    full screen. Should look much better.
