View Full Version : Weird Video Playback

January 24th, 2009, 03:36 PM
I downloaded the vista version of boxee and I love it. It plays internet video very well, but the videos on my hard drive are a different story. I could try to explain what it looks like but instead i'll just post a screen shot and maybe someone can tell me what's wrong. All the shows are divx encoded, however i had a similar effect when trying to play a movie i downloaded from itunes (although i expected that one not to work).

Otherwise I'm really happy, thanks in advance for any help anyone can offer

I'm having the exact same problem with avi playback, and a similar problem with DVD playback. The video plays clearly in the upper left 25% of the screen, but is ghosting at full size over the rest of the screen. Menu areas are "active" in the screwed up full screen area.

The screenshots below probably explain it way better than I can.
