Movie + Metro + my laptop = hell. :(

    So, I copied my Win7 sample movie to Win8 and hit play. The metro movie player opens up with sound, but no image for like 2 seconds. I missed a lot of beautiful horse running footage. I tried to press back and play the movie again, same, only sound for 2 seconds with no image.

    WMP is broken on Win8. The WMC is ok, it takes awhile to open the WMC, but, the image and sound are both working at the same time, so it is acceptable.

    I hope they fix the problem. Missing out 2 seconds of video with sound only = hell.

     

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    What happens if you loop the video? Does it still have no sound at the first couple of seconds?

    I am just looking for the download of Win8 CP now, so I won't be playing with it for a while yet.

    @Proton2:

    Loop is ok because it is playing already. It doesn't matter where you start your video too. When you launch the movie player, there will be 2 seconds of blank with sound. This still happens when you press back (which pause your video) and click play again (on the file, not the mini pre-view bar).
