JSI Tip 10267. Your video files do not play correctly when you change screen orientation on a wide screen in Windows XP?

If you rotate your wide screen by 90 or 270 degrees while playing a video, you video may be black, or play incorrectly.

This behavior may occur if the video preview screen is not inside the viewable desktop screen area.

To workaround this behavior, move the video program preview window to a location inside the viewable desktop screen area, or just stop the video and play it again.
