How To Close XBox Video Application

Dec 6, 2012

I doubleclicked on an MP4 to play it (from Explorer) and this XBox Video thing came up and played it. Fine, looks like a nice player. But when I stopped it wanted to exit the application -- can't find a way.

Oh, I can switch to ANOTHER application, but how the heck do I close this thing down? I could bring up Task Manager and kill it there (I suppose -- haven't even seen if there is still Task Manager, although I assume they would not have gotten rid of that) but there MUST be a simple way to close out an app, right?

(If not I'm going to remove that app and make sure I never accidentally bring it up again).

Windows 8.1 Fails To Run Correctly After Application Close

Aug 11, 2014

I am running the latest edition of Windows 8.1 and have recently run into some problems. I have the Steam Gaming client installed on my system with a few games, one of which is Team Fortress 2. However, after I close certain games, that might run in fullscreen, and some don't like Minecraft, I can't open any other programs. Not task manager, I can't even shut down my PC. It's not just Steam items.

How To Move Personal IPhone Videos From Xbox Video

Sep 10, 2014

I have a sony camcorder with Play Memories Home. When I try to download videos from my iphone, playmemories pops up, and tries to work with the download. However, when I download the content, all my pictures download, and only some videos download, but it says that all content has downloaded. When I searched for the lost videos, I found them on xbox video, but cannot find them anywhere else on the computer. I also cannot figure out how to get them from xbox video to where I store the rest of my videos.

Apps / Software :: Xbox Video App Won't Download Purchased Movie

Feb 12, 2014

I have a dell venue pro. I rented a movie on the pre-installed video app (xbox). I opted to download the movie so I can watch it remotely. I got a download error because of low disc space. The c drive is low on memory but I have a completely empty microsd card with more then enough room for the movie. How can I make the app download onto the msd card instead of the main drive? The app itself has no such option in the settings. I've tried to change the pathway but the app still seems to want to download the the c drive first.

Apps / Software :: Unable To Open MPEG-2 Video Files Various Application?

Dec 22, 2013

On my old Win 7 and Win Vista and Win XP laptops I've had no problems opening and viewing my old MPEG-2 video files. My new laptop running Win 8.1 will not allow me to view them.

Windows Media Player will only recognize them as audio files - not video - though the sound will play. Real Player is the same - the application will open and begin playing a file but only as audio file. I've tried the built in Toshiba media player and it shows errors and won't open the files at all.

Again - these are conforming MPEG-2 NTSC 760X480 video file (old analog home movies) captured using an ATI video card dongle to connect to my video source and an old version of capture application ULead Video Studio. These files conform in every way to MPEG-2 standard/format and will run on all of our PC EXCEPT the new one running Win 8.

I bought and loaded a video editing application from Corel and it will open and play these files perfectly so why won't Win Media Player and Real Player recognize them when running behind Windows 8?

Graphic Cards :: Sapphire Vapor X R9 280X - No Video Signal When Linking New Video Card

Jul 23, 2014

I got a new video card, namely the Sapphire Vapor-X R9 280X to replace my old (broken) video card, namely the Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 Boost.

The problem is that I get no video signal when linking my new video card. The vga-led on motherboard turns on red (normally never) .

I thought my motherboard is broken, but then I tried the video card (Radeon HD 6950) from my brother and he just shows video signal. (vga-led turns not on red this time on motherboard) .

I would also say that on the box of my new video card is a 750 watt power supply recommended, but I only have a 600 watt power supply build in my pc.

Win 8 Video App And Flash Video In IE10

Nov 24, 2012

I'm having severe playback problems with the Video app. Whenever I try to play any video from my PC (avi or mp4), it just freezes on the first frame while the audio continues. If I try to skip it will eventually play properly for 2-3 secs, but then go blocky and freeze again. I've tried playing videos that I rented from Xbox Video, and they play perfectly. All videos also play perfectly on both WMP and VLC. Is it just a very poor app?

I am also having trouble viewing any flash video content in IE10, both Metro and Desktop. Youtube will not play any video in Fullscreen; even at 480p, playback is jerky, with an almost "strobe" like effect on movement. When I was using Vista, IE would quite happily play Youtube videos at 720p in Fullscreen with no issues. If I try to play the front page video on Vimeo, the whole page freezes up. There is no option to disable video acceleration in the flash menu, so I am at a loss as to what else I can try. I have upgrade my graphics card from 256MB to 1GB in the hope it might make a difference, but it didn't. Have just downloaded Chrome and can play Fullscreen 1080p with that no problem.

I was wondering if the two issues might be related? I have looked and looked for Adobe Flash settings all over Windows 8 but can find nothing.

Xbox Games Ads In Windows 8?

Dec 1, 2012

After using Windows 8 on one of my machines, it had become apparent Microsoft is taking a new turn with their operating system. I wondered at first why Windows 8 was so much less expensive than previous versions of Windows. Now it seems clear to me. All the nice games in previous windows are now gone, and if you want games you now have to use metro and Xbox games. If you play the games at all, the big difference is now all the advertisements.

Any way to block these ads, but no luck. Microsoft has even fooled around and made it somewhat difficult to alter the hosts file. Figuring out a way to effectively block the ads ....

How To Close Metro Apps

Since I've not installed adobe reader, the preinstalled Reader app opened for viewing a pdf file. What is the intended method to close Reader and other metro apps? I don't see any way to do that. I don't expect we are supposed to use Task Manager to close it.

I have downloaded some basic games like Solitaire, Mah Jong, and Freecell. Every time I run them, the app tries to communicate with my Xbox. It just happens that I don't own an Xbox. Is there any way I can configure the games so they don't try this rather futile communication?

Want To Close Window When Deleting Folder

Oct 16, 2013

I am a long time user of XP and in the past year have taken the plunge into 8. Whenever I delete a folder in XP, if that folder is open in an explorer window, the window automatically closes. When I delete a folder that has a window open in 8, the window simply navigates to the default explorer location. When I an doing folder maintenance, I am basically ending up with a whole bunch of open windows.

Any setting I can change to make the window of a deleted folder close automatically?

How To Close A Window And Return To Desktop

Apr 11, 2013

Once something opens, even from desktop, it doesn't have a little red x in the corner and there doesn't seem to be a way to close it and return to where I was before. I can only either hit the windows button and go back to the page with all the apps, or swipe it down and do the same. But say I'm on desktop, I've got the internet open and I open up my pictures and double click a picture to see it larger- it then fills the whole screen and there's no way to go back to my desktop and what I was doing by just CLOSING it, rather I have to go back to the app page and then click on deskptop. Is there a way round this?

Screen Mirror With 8.1 Desktop To TV With Xbox Or Roku 3?

Jul 30, 2014

I want to be able to screen mirror from my W.81 desktop wired to my TV thru Xbox 360 and Roku 3 without having to buy yet another device (Miracast) to do so. I know this can be done via Devices/Play/Xbox/IE App but the problem is that most content won't play properly with the IE App-IE browser yes but not the App for some reason. This same content will play on Chrome but I can't screen mirror with Xbox with Chrome. I really want to be able to do this without spending more money.

Network / Sharing :: How To Wirelessly Broadcast From Win 8.1 PC To Xbox / TV

Dec 4, 2013

I had the understanding that the only way I could view content on my TV w/Xbox extender from my PC for online videos, Showtime Anytime, Coke & Popcorn, HBO GO, etc. was with an Xbox Live Gold Account. However, I read that this can be done in 8.1 without an XLGA by opening the video source in the IE app, begin play, charms/device/Xbox would broadcast directly. I've tried this but I don't see the Xbox option in Device. What am I missing?
