If you could post a link to a file I can download I'd be more than willing to give it a try. My quick search only came up with really low quality videos.

Edited: I found a few videos I didn't realize I uploaded from my phone (ads from some app), they appear to look the same in the Metro app and WMP, although 480x360 isn't exactly an optimum test bed.

Edited Part 2: Found a nice HD WMV (here), again it looks the same on both.

Yeah it's weird. I tried another video file and it played fine. Yet these other set of video files didn't. Oh we'll. I'll see if I can cut it down and upload it. Thanks for the reply!

One annoyance that I have with W8 is the login screen with multiple accounts. For what ever reason once your computer boots up to the login screen and you press enter, it only shows one person's account. You have to click on the arrow so you can see everyone else's account.

Any way that I can disable that? I want it to show everyone (accounts) at the login scree not just one person and then having to click the arrow to show the rest.

Thanks!

Hey folks. There is a feature which I would like to turn off but I don't know how.

 

I don't even know if it is a IE or Windows 8 feature.

 

Anyhow

 

I am using  WIN8 in Turkish and when i type things like monitör it autocorrects it self as you can see. I want to disable this. Notice the 2nd o in monitör is in Turkish lettering as thats the way to spell it here in Turkey.

I've heard a lot of talk about how Win 8 is faster at booting, but it seems to me it's the same as Win 7 was (not that Win 7 was ever slow on my system).

Hmm I see... So it seems to me that upgrading for perfomance improvements isn't a good idea either... I'll have to think it over, thanks.

I fixed my issue with the Skype cutting out when Alt + Tabbing by allowing it to run in the background and restarting me PC.... I have another question though, I've been seeing a lot of great start menus with 2 -3 rows. How do I get more rows?

grab an icon and pull it over until you see a shadow bar, place it on that bar. new column of tiles will start at that point..

Go to desktop, rightclick the bottom left corner, click control panel, then go to Region & Language, you should be able to change the language to English UK / American. Not sure if that's what you want to do as you are in turkey, but at least it will be in english lettering.
