    Hmm...I just found out two days ago my netbook plays 720p (if you're wondering, its the Engadget Show, I downloaded the HD version) with no chops and skips on Windows 7 with WMP, but not in VLC. Should I switch to WMP or get something like MPC?

    When I had my EEE I also found WMP 12 played HD content good. Just use it and if you have a HD file it can't play, use MPC-HC.

    Got a quick question about the taskbar icons. I noticed that if I pin say Firefox in the taskbar and I launch it....I can't open another Firefox window by simply left clicking the same icon (like you can in previous versions of Windows). You have to right click on the icon and then select Firefox in order to open it. Any way to change this to the same way previous versions of Windows handled it?

    Actually, today, I downloaded a 720p mkv, its not as smooth as the Engadget Show I downloaded (m4v). I'm using the CCCP codecs.

    I think the only way is to use the old style? But I am not too sure ...
    I see this problem : A left klick open option would "overwrite" the open minimized option^^ :rolleyes:

    OK you could make: if minimized open/ else open new :p

    We should work for microsoft :-D

    Doesn't Shift+Click work to open a new instance for you?
