Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a dual-monitor configuration on a Windows Vista-based system.
  • You play a DVD movie in Windows Media Player 11.
  • While the movie is playing, you drag the video window to the other monitor.
In this scenario, the video skips some frames. Or, it skips ahead to the next chapter of the DVD movie. This problem occurs regardless of the monitor to which you drag the Windows Media Player window.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
