Videos lagout when another program is open full screen

Q: Videos lagout when another program is open full screen

Hey guys,

First post on here, have just installed windows 8 on my machine and everything is working fine, just noticed however when i play a game in full screen and have another screen with say VLC playing watching a movie the movie turns down to 50% play speed (not actually play speed in player but just the way it plays) so what would be frame after frame there is an extra frame between there where it lags out...

On windows 7 i had no issue having a full screen game on one monitor and a movie on another screen all working perfectly fine...

Any1 know what the issue is here?? i have no idea what to fix i have latest drivers for everything, bios upgrades done, newest software for vlc and still no idea what i can do...

any help would be great thanks

Preferred Solution: Videos lagout when another program is open full screen

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Videos lagout when another program is open full screen

A workaround is to set your game to use Windows 7 compatibility mode... its to do with the way priority is handled from what I have heard. First though make sure your graphics drivers are 100% up to date, a lot of people who reported this back in RTM said that it is fixed now, that could have been due to patches or graphics card drivers but for a lot it was resolved.
Aside that, the compatibility thing has been reported as a good solution (little annoying needing to set it on every game you play though, so not ideal)

I've tried updating the drivers, making sure nothing was overclocked, ram memtest and furmark. memtest found no errors, same with chkdsk and it didn't crash in furmark
my average temp of gpu is 31 degrees Celsius.

It plays sound for a few seconds afterward but then becomes unresponsive to the power button and keyboard so I have to turn the psu off.

Help would be greatly appreciated

and for some reason it keeps posting this in general discussion not bsod support

My computer has a problem with crashing while playing a video in full screen. When it crashes the screen turns black while the speakers give out a buzzing noise. Everything is unresposive the only solution is to turn it off with the power button. It happens in any full screen video online or offline and even visualizations from windows media player and iTunes, but only in full screen. I don't think it's overheating either because sometimes it takes 30 mins to crash and other times it will crash immediately when put in full screen. *I've tried setting it back to factory settings thus reinstalling windows. *All the directx features are working with no reported problem there.*
I don't think it's a memory issue in the computer, as my specs are:
Windows 7 64-bit
Processor: intel core i5 3.20 GHz
Ram: 8 GB
Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce GT 220
Graphics card memory: 0.5 GB
Any other ideas?

If I play a video from ANY source, online or on any player, the video automatically goes full-screen and I am unable to minimize it unless I restart the computer.

I just need to know what causes this in the first place so I can watch a video without it going to full-screen mode on its own. I know there's a setting somewhere, I just can't find it. No button combinations on the keyboard minimize the picture.

There are no viruses or spyware. I'm running Windows XP SP2.

My monitor doesn't seem to support 720p or 1080p HD videos on youtube when full screen. I have an HP 2009m monitor and it seems pretty new.

Do you think this is a monitor driver issue or graphics card, or maybe something else?

Actually it lags any time I make the player bigger. So I have to keep it small or else it lags basically...

It does it on vlc, windows media, and quicktime (all I have.)

Today I downloaded windows media encoder to convert an avi to wmv to watch on my xbox 360, and that made me install different codecs. At first I thought that could've been the problem, but then I remembered that the videos have been doing that for the past 2 or 3 days now.

Any idea why its doing this to me?

Videos work fine when in regular dimensions, but when I click fullscreen it is either black, or the video freezes. The audio works fine.

I cannot right click on the video.

I have tried this both in chrome and safari, and on multiple websites (Youtube, vidxden, etc)

A:Cannot play videos in full screen

If right-click gives you a context-menu when video is playing at the default size:

Click Settings in the context menu.
The Adobe Flash Player Settings screen will open.
Click on the icon at the bottom-left of the Adobe Flash Player Settings window to open the Display panel.

Remove the tick from Enable hardware acceleration.
Click 'Close' to close the display panel.

Hello, I've been having BSOD when I put videos from youtube into full screen. I've been searching online on what to do and found this site. I tried updating some display drivers but, it never helped. Here are my dump files.
Relevancy 66.65%

I'm having a serious problem when trying to watch videos in full scream. When in full screen, the videos get slow, lagging in various scenes, sometimes with cuts in the audio too.

My config is Sempron 2600+, 1.5gb ram and Geforce 5500 256MB 128 bits. Display 22", 1680x1050 resolution. I'm using nvidia beta driver for Windows 7 (it seems to be the same driver used for Windows Vista, don't know).

I tried lots of codecs and players, nothing works. Windows Media Player and Media Player classic are working almost perfectly than any other players, but I really hate WMP.

I tried to change the settings in nVidia Control Panel, but I can't find the nvidia control panel, it's not in the right button menu.

I installed the game Marvel Ultimate Alliance and it's slow too, but I have all the requirements to play it smoothly.

I'm using build 7600.

How can I solve this?

A:Full screen videos and games lagging

If you are still using the Win 7 default display drivers you might want to look in the Nvidia driver page for updated drivers for your system.

The default Win7 Nvidia drivers do not install the Nvidia control panel.
Look here for your drivers. Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers

A:Full Screen Videos not working in Vista

so there is no support?
Relevancy 66.65%

So I've had this computer since September and have not been having any issues until I updated to Windows 7 from Vista. Everything works fine and dandy until I decide to watch a video in full screen mode. It is the worst when watching online videos. Once the computer crashes the screen goes blank and all sound cuts out. The only way to restore the computer is to force it off. For online videos this happens in a few minutes or sometimes a few seconds and for downloaded videos this happens after a little longer, usually around thirty minutes. I have uninstalled and reinstalled all of the graphics and sound drivers and have run hard ware diagnostics on everything repeatedly. Any ideas? Also I do play very taxing games on this computer but I have never had any such issue.

When viewing videos on YouTube, Facebook or other sites, I can not expand these videos to full screen. When I attempt to do so, the audio continues to play, but the screen goes black. However, when I hit the esc key to minimize, sometimes I see a flash of the full screen just before it reduces back to the small player. This is a new problem, and seemed to happen recently, about the same time as some updates that were installed. Additionally, I am also seeing videos not immediately fully loaded in the smaller players on Facebook. It takes much more time for them to be completely visible (the screen shows 50% of the video visible, but 50% black/trying to load). I have an NVIDIA Quadro M1000M and an Intel HD Graphics P530  Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

This is a Pavillion x360 Convertable 15-bk010nr. Using Windows 10 64 bit.When reading websites and a video is available, all I see is a black screen (most of the time) with a ?handle? at the bottom center. Sometimes I will see a photo with a play arrow, but that is rare. If I click play, it turns black. If I can get the video to start playing, I can hear it, but can't see the video unless I blindly click in the area where the full screen button should be and get it to open in full screen mode. How can I get these videos to play normally in the website without having to go full screen? This is a screenshot of a video that is playing - I can hear it, but can't see it. Thank you for your assistance.

When I first built my pc I watched a video in fullscreen. Got the BSOD.....updated drivers. Now I just dont watch fullscreen videos. I have the Radeon HD 7950 and am using the beta drivers. I was also playing the game Arma 2 (DayZ mod) also I had a map opened on googlechrome in the background and got the BSOD. this was before I installed the beta drivers. I was running the 12.10 drivers at the time. Now I installed the beta and haven't played any games yet. But I wanted to see what caused it. Blue Screen viewer tells me it was caused by the driver ntoskrnl.exe, caused by address ntoskrnl.exe+ 7efc0

Both .dmp files come with Memory_Management 1a

Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes. *Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot. *If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
*If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.
3. Test the next stick of RAM (stick #2) in the next motherboard slot. *If this RAM stick has errors repeat step #2 using a known good stick if possible, or another stick.
*If this RAM stick has no errors and both sticks failed in slot#1, test RAM stick #1 in this slot.
4. If you find a stick that passes the test, test it in all the other motherboard slots.

If Part 2 testing shows errors, and all tests in Part 3 show errors, you will need to test the RAM sticks in another computer and/or test other RAM in your computer to identify the problem.

In this way, you can identify whether it is a bad stick of RAM, a bad motherboard, or incompatibility between the sticks.

Errors are sometimes found after 8 passes.

Do this test overnight, before going to bed.

When watching a video in full screen, I get video tear towards the top of the screen

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook PC
Product number: A7N52EA#ABU
Video card: Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000

I have already tried updating my graphics driver. It said that it was up to date

I'm not sure if this is related, but I used to get a message when I turned on my laptop saying:
WARNING The Catalyst Control Center is not supported by the driver version of your enabled graphics adapter. Please update your AMD graphics driver, or enable your AMD adapter using the Displays Manager.

so... I uninstalled the AMD

My PC also doesn't wake from sleep when I close the lid of the laptop. Is this connected to the other issues I'm having?

A:I am having a problem with video when I watch videos in full screen

Tearing would typically be a video driver issue. Are you using the latest driver version available from the laptop manufacturer? It's only recommended to use the laptop manufacturers drivers. You may need to uninstall the drivers, reboot, and then install the latest version again.

Most laptops uses a switch to determine lid position I believe. So it could be an actual hardware fault, or a software issue.

download media player classic ( its free too)then go under View and click options find player option under Open options click on Launch files in fullscreen, that should solve that problem. Thats all i know that would open up to fullscreen mode.

Earlier yesterday, I had received a blue screen error while watching videos on Netflix while
in full screen view. Then just a few hours ago, the same error occurred again while I was watching a video on Youtube during full screen. I could hear ticking noises in my hard drive usually before or after this issue takes place. Here is the message below that was showing:

Whenever i try to watch a video on youtube or dailymotion via full screen my video consistently exits full screen after 20-30 seconds of play. This happens every time without fail and happens again when i re activate full screen mode.

Initially i thought the problem was with my flash player but files played via full screen via windows media player seem to do the exact same thing though they seem to take a bit longer, about 60-80 seconds before they exit full screen mode?

Ive been fiddleing around for ages and i can't remedy the problem so if anyone out there can help me i would be very much appreciative.

This never happened before until recently, my screensaver would start while I am watching movies under full screen in WMP, and i am not sure what i did to trigger this. I made sure that the "allow screen saver during playback" setting in WMP is unchecked, and my battery plan for my laptop is set to 'balanced'. I'd rather not have to change my screensaver settings everytime i watch a movie or a show. Any help please?

A:Screensaver starts while watching videos in WiMP under full screen

OK i found out how it happened

Screensaver kicked in while i watched videos in WMP under full screen because I installed a newer version of my Video Card driver. After I reinstalled my driver back to the default version that came with my laptop....movies no longer get interrupted by the screensaver. But obviously newer drivers are important too, so i have yet to figure out how to have latest version driver and not have this screensaver issue.

Hope this info helps people who have the same problem.

Hey, my computer has been blue screening for quite sometime now, if I were to estimate I would say around 8 months and I get 1-2 blue screen every month I would have to say. I have formatted my computer and re-installed windows around 1-2 months ago to check if it would fix the problem but to no avail. I would generally get these blue screens when I would be playing a full screen game but also it sometimes happens when I would play video games in windowed mode as well. Also, sometimes it would occur when I would full screen or escape a full screen YouTube video.

I have tried updating my video driver as well as explained before formatting my hard drive and re-installing Windows 7 Ultimate x64 but it has still not resolved the issue. I'll attach the dump files and would thank you in advance for any help given.

Hi I seem to be getting frequent BSODs when streaming videos on youtube or when using other streaming video players if I have them fullscreen. In addition, when I close the game Civilization 5 my computer will often crash to a BSOD.

When I checked bluescreenview there was only one minidump summary, however, I have had probably 20 BSODs in the past week. I'm unsure how many summaries are included in the attached minidump files.

I'm running 64 bit 7 with 4GB ram, an Intel Quad core Q9550 cpu running at 2.83 GHz, GPU is a Nvidia Geforce GTS 250 (up to date) and I use Microsoft Security Essentials as an Antivirus. I have a 700 Watt psu, with a single hard drive at about 60% capacity.

I've been getting BSODs frequently for the past few months but much more frequently lately. Thank you for any and all help, and please let me know if more information is required.


A:BSODs when watching streaming full screen videos and closing Civ5

Daemon Tools (and Alcohol 120% software) are known to cause BSOD's on some Win7 systems (mostly due to the sptd.sys driver, although I have seen dtsoftbus01.sys blamed on several occasions).
Please uninstall the programs, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration): DuplexSecure - FAQ

Some free alternatives (I don't use them, so I can't comment on them)

MagicISO - Convert BIN to ISO, Create, Edit, Burn, Extract ISO file, ISO/BIN converter/extractor/editor

I'd suggest updating your network drivers from the manufacturer's website also. They date from 2009, so they may be troublesome.

Please post back if this doesn't stop the BSOD's - there's 2 ways that we can go (either running Driver Verifier or hardware diagnostics).

The following info is just FYI, I've already addressed the issues that I saw in the above paragraphs

A:Android accepts defeat, will now show vertical YouTube videos full screen


Honestly whoever originally made the decision to only allow video to be viewed in widescreen format in full screen mode was a bone head move, thanks captain Dic.

"So vertical video makers rejoice. In fact, we should all celebrate. Although the orientation will still be annoying for people watching on laptops, monitors, and TVs, at least Android smartphone users won't have to suffer innecesarily. There's no word yet on when or if the update is coming to iOS."

The added screen real estate more than makes up for the lack of proper orientation, maybe flip your laptop on its side and change it's screen setting to portrait if it really bothers you. But when trying to watch on an already small screen it just doesn't make sense for it to force you to watch with black bars.

No, it's not normal for a program to crash or for games to crash.

You probably will get numerous suggestions and they may or may not work but I have found that the following
works when all others fail.

Follow the instructions below exactly and your problem should be solved.
Right click the shortcut icon for IE next to the Start button, choose Properties, change it from 'normal' to 'maximized'. Now open it.
Now right click any link on the page, choose Open In New Window....don't maximize it....instead, use the mouse to resize it to what you want it to be.
Now close the FIRST window you opened, and then close the new one you just resized.

Reopen IE from the shortcut icon again, and all windows from now on will be the size you chose and created

I have checked the properties of the file itself and there is no option to open it, whether normal, full size or whatever else.

It's been awhile since making changes to a computer.

Ordered a computer ( generic machine) set it up, but whenever I open either IE or FF browser they open in a small page, I click on the the top right square to increase the size. Also, I'm trying to find the Performance Options - the page showing Visual Effects, Advanced, Data Execution Prevention tabs.

It has been quite some time since working on computers and I guess my memory is backing up on me.

When I open a web page for the first time it is always minimised..I reset it (zoom) to suit my needs and whenever I return to that page it is maximised..fine.
The thing is , I'm 71 and my eyes are not as good as they used to be. I find continually having to resize pages a bit of a drag. Is there a way of setting my PC/browser..(Firefox) to ensure web pages open at their maximum every time?
Thanks in advance.

Open your browser and resize to your liking; right click the upper most portion of the window and select the "size" option from the drowndown menu. See attachment;

Hey everyone, I'm having issues with opening some programs into full-screen mode, these programs include; Warcraft 3, Znesw (Emulator) and also Dosbox.

Here is the problem -

What basically happens is, when I open any of these programs they open, but when I try to engage them into full-screen mode they make then screen black for a second or two and then they are pretty much minimized.
When I try to restore them from being minimized, it once again goes black and minimizes the program.

What I have tried:
-Running a virus scan
-Restarting PC
-Running as administrator, Windows Xp, Vista, etc.

Thank you for your time.

Hey all,

I am actually trying to get this to work on a Windows XP laptop running windows XP Pro.

It's my daughters laptop I passed down to her.

I have it set to automatically launch IE and open on startup.

However I want to set it up to open in full screen mode. Currently it just keeps opening in regular maximized mode.



A:How to open IE 8 in full screen mode every time?

See if this helps:

Locate Internet Explorer in your start menu (possibly under all programs.) Right click on it and in the context menu that opens, click on properties.

The internet explorer properties dialog box will open. From the "run" drop down box select maximized, then click apply, then OK.

As in my Windows Vista programs, all I had to do was to go to properties and change the open window to to full screen. But how do I do it in Windows 7? I've tried the ol fashion way by holding down the mouse and draging the lower left corner of the window to the bottom of the bottom left of the screen but it does not work. If I have let's say 20 programs and I know tha I will have to reinstall when the Windows 7 comes out, but what do I do in the mean time with all 20 that I am now using? Sugg?ThanksHarry

A:Open Windows 7 and all screens to a full screen

Thanks for posting in Microsoft TechNet Forum.
I'm sorry for not be quite clear about your question, according to my understanding, your issues are:
1. How to automatically open applications in a maximized window in Windows 7?
2. Is there any method to maximize a window that is in use by holding and dragging the mouse?
If I misunderstand anything, please feel free to let me know.
To move on, if it is what you mean, answers are as follows:
1. In Windows 7, applications remember the previous status of window size. If you run an application and set it to maximized then close, the next time you open it automatically in a maximized window. Moreover, we also can configure in Properties of shortcuts to run in Maximized window.
2. While you are using any application, you can simply drag this application to the top of screen then it get to the full screen window. Moreover, you can also press WIN + up keys to maximize the current window.
Best Regards

I finally learned somewhere on this forum how to have Internet explorer always open in fullscreen, and all my favorites open full screen when in IE. But, when I am at the desktop, and click on an icon, it does not open in full screen. I have to maximize it after it opens. I realize this is pretty nitpicking, but I want everything to open in full screen if possible. Ideas?

A:Hoe do I get desktop icons to open full screen?

Right click the shortcut, choose Properties. Go to Shortcut tab, choose Run Maximized from drop down menu.

Notice that some applications have disabled the Maximize button, using a default window size. You can not maximize these apps.

I have installed my Big Fish games my Dell Studio 1737 Laptop. My resolution is set at 1920 x 1200; however, when the games start up they only open at a resolution of 1024 x 768. All of the games do this. I have tried changing my resolution to all the options I have and none of them work. The games will not open to the full 1920 x 1200 or anything greater than 1024 x 768.

These games work fine on my desktop.

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Thank you.

If I click on a thread, I get the response in a full size window on my 19' LCD monitor.

However, if I right click on a thread and click on "open in new window" I get a window about 2 inches too small on all 4 sides, I can click on the maximize option and make it a full size window, but I'd like to find a way to cause it to open full size.

I tried draging the window to make it full size and holding the shift key when closing it, to no avail.

A:Solved: How to open full screen in new window?

Open the secondary screen and resize it as you have described. Now, switch to ALL the other IE instances and close them, making the newly resized screen the last IE window closed. It'll now open at the new size.

Help me!

Opening my games is not a problem at all, It's not minimizing at first, but when I plug in my headphones this pops up:

"And then I'll check Headphone and then click OK"

But when I open up my games again, it keeps minimizing!
It's so frustrating

I have to restart my PC to remove the minimizing thing.

Please help me! Is there any ways to play games without minimizing while I have a device connected to my PC?

Hello all, I hope this is the right nplace to ask this.

I was wondering if anyone knows of a program I can show driver schedule in our break room? Right now we have an ecel file running full screen but I would like something with a clean look and to do full screen of course.

Any suggestions? Free ones are preferable.

Every five minutes or so my full screen programs minimize to the desktop while the mouse is idle(when I'm using a controller or watching a movie), and i believe the culprit is an application that opens and closes before I can see it. I've scoured the event viewer, and have found nothing. Is there a way to figure out what application is opening? Perhaps it's a windows feature trying to open and close? I've done a lot of research and it seems that solutions that have worked for other is not working for me. Any help at all would be appreciated!

Hi guys,

I have a really annoying problem... I have a dual screen set up on my desktop pc, and when I open a video in any media player and move it to my secondary monitor, it automatically plays full screen on my primary monitor as well!!

It's been going on for a while now, but just thought I'd actually see if anyone can help me!

I'm running win xp pro sp 3 and my video card is ATI Radeon HD 2400 Pro... does that help?

Anyway, is there a setting somewhere that I need to address??

please help!

I have a Compaq widescreen laptop.

But I cannot put videos on full screen.

If I'm watching a video on, for example, You Tube, and I click the button to put the video in full screen mode, it just creates a blank black screen. I can't see anything or do anything and the only way to exit this set up is to press ESC on my keyboard.

Is there a way I can change the settings or something so that I can watch videos in full screen on my widescreen laptop?

Thanks in advance anyone who can help!

I have been all over the net on this problem which apparently annoys quite a lot of users. MS MVP's usually say something like, "don't be so lazy; just maximize the window". Not very helpful.

Now before I did a reinstall, all my Explorer or Program windows when clicked on opened to a Full Screen. Now after the reinstall, they open to only Partial Size. And, yes, I find that very annoying.

Question: Does anyone know Which Registry Entry to modify so that All Windows Open to Full Screen - and not to partial size that must be enlarged to full screen?

I do own Display Fusion and Dexpot for multiple monitors. Should I be looking for an answer in those? (I will of course do so but think this is a Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit problem that should be fixed in Regedit.

XP home box, IE7 opens normally, full screen. If I click on a link that opens in a separate window it opens less than full screen, in a "restored down" window that is about 1/4 screen size.
Tried maximizing secondary window and then closing using ALT+(red X close button) and CTRL+(red X close button), and SHIFT +(red X close button).
No joy.
Prolly simple fix or setting change but I am stumped - thanks for any help.

I have Office 2003 Professional and use Outlook 2003 for e-mail. Until recently (several weeks ago), when I would open a new e-mail message it would always open in a small screen. Now they always open maximized (full screen). If I try to reset it, it's OK for that one message but the next time it will open maximized.

I suspect it has something to do with Word or some Office update as it is set to use Word to edit e-mails (how it's always been configured).

I don't see anything in Outlook 2003 options for the new mail screen size. I've tried System Restore and whatever has changed is not affected by System Restore, unless I haven't went back far enough (and I can't go any further than the oldest restore point I have).

Is there a Registry hack that will "fix" this?

I don't know if this is a Windows issue or just an issue with my software but I was using Corel Paint shop pro x6 and I'm not sure what I did but after opening files or using the save to option several times, all of a sudden the window started opening full screen and there doesn't seem to be any way to minimize it.
I tried to see if I could at least drag it some place but it won't move. I tried going to every side and corner to see if I could resize it that way but nothing happens. This is the only program that opens my folders in full screen so perhaps it has nothing to do with Windows but I'm desperate for some help on how I can get my folders to open in a small screen where you can move them over or out of the way of something you might be looking at.

A:open or save to folders locked into full screen

Hello Sheryl,

Is this window a modern app screen by chance?

Does it have the usual "restore down" button (middle one) at the top right corner?

As a test, press the F11 key to see if can toggle on/off full screen like it does in explorer and IE.

If that doesn't help, then please post a screenshot showing this to see if anything may stand out.
