Question Media Player Control


I made a program using vbnet 2010. It's just a simple
video player using the media player control and a
treeview control to list the videos to play from several
different folders.

I first made and used this program using windows 7 and
everything ran fine but my computer went ka-put and had
to get a new one with windows 8.1 installed. Running the
videos windowed, everything is fine but when i run the videos
in full screen mode, is where i'm having some trouble.

The videos are around 43 mins long and when i try to watch 2
vids in a row, the player screen goes black but with sound for a second
or 2 and then things go back to normal. As soon as the video is
done playing, the player automatically goes back to windowed
mode.

At that point, i can now see that my treeview control is completely
blackened out and also if there are any open folders behind my
program, they are blackened out to.

I was just wondering if anyone has reported problems like this
after going to windows 8.1 and if there is a fix for it?

OK. This isn't a vbnet problem. I was watching my videos
again and not in full screen and this time, the whole desktop
went black.

I was clicking on the screen to make it come back on and a
little message box popped up saying my display driver stopped
responding and windows fixed the problem.

Does that mean that maybe i need to install a codex pack to
fix this or am i having a windows display driver issue?

I was going to write down exactly what the message box said
but it disappeared to fast.

I wound up doing a windows update and it included
a graphics driver. After the update, i haven't had any
more trouble with the video display. Knock on wood...

Just a little update from my last post.

Last night, i was trying to play a dvd movie and all i
could get to play it was cyberlink power dvd. I don't
really like there programs, so today i was trying to
set windows media player as the default dvd player
but to my surprise, i found out that windows 8 and 8.1
don't come with dvd playback any more. At least not
by microsoft. That is why cyberlink power dvd comes
with win 8/8.1 now.

This must have been why i was having so much trouble
using my windows media control in my vbnet program
earlier.

Now i think microsoft wants you to buy their windows media
player pack in order to have dvd playback through their media player.
