Playing videos with WMP and Real Player

They look okay when I play them in a small window, but when I change it to full screen they just look blurred. Why? Any way to watch them full screen and with the same clarity as I get watching them in a small window? Something abvious I'm missing here?

Er, that's all!

What kind of videos are they? Low bit-rate perhaps? Or are you talking about DVD films and other un-compressed video formats?

How about AVI Video? I don't know much (anything, really!) about different video formats.

Hehe, can't believe I typed "abvious" in my first post!

I believe that AVI may be compressed. I'm not sure.

Normally, compressed video would appear more pixellated than fuzzy.

Load the movie(s) in question into this; click here
If the movie's native resolution is much lower than your desktop resolution, they will look bad when zoomed.

Ah! Right, I have my desktop set to 1024 x 768 (32 bit). Lowest I can set it to is 800 x 600 (16 bit). I'll try that.
