    I have a laptop connected to a Sony projector and attempted to show an AVI
    file from the laptop using Windows Media Player.

    I can see the Windows Media Player session on both my laptop and the
    projection screen, but I can not see the AVI in the WMP display on the
    projection screen.

    I press the play button and the applications scroll bar at the bottom
    indicating that the video is playing is moving.

    The AVI file is playing on my laptop, but WMP display section is black.

    I have checked the video setting to ensure that AVI files are valid formats.

    Has anyone else experienced this issue?

    Hi,
    Go to Tools, Options, Performance and click on Advanced Options
    Check or uncheck the Use Overlay option and see what happens.
