Videos lagout when another program is open full screen RRS feed

  • Question

  • 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

  • Hi,

    Do you still have the same issue if you try another player? Also, if the Player supports Hardware acceleration, please turn it off.
