Change Portrait to Landscape in Windows Media Player
Jul 19 2007, 6:24 AM EDT | Post edited: Jul 19 2007, 6:24 AM EDT
Dash - WM 6.0
When ever I play videos (MSNBC) the videos automatically play in Portrait mode, how do I change it to Landscape mode.

Any help is appreciated.

Not sure if this is it for you but for videos played from an internal file in fullscreen mode, WM6 has a problem (WM5 all was ok). The following I picked up from the web and it worked for me. Sorry I can't give credit to who posted it as I forgot where I got it...

Video Full Screen Fix
The big fix, that every Dash/Excalibur owners have been waiting for, and which was the big thorn in the whole wm6 official upgrade by T-Mobile. When you wanted to watch full screen video, you had to turn your Dash sideways to view the video.[not SlingPayer video]! We have a fix for the 90 degree screen rotation!
Here it is: Add the following new Key "Rotation" under HKLM\System\GDI e.g. [HKLM\System\GDI\Rotation] Then add this Dword "LandscapeMode" =0 Now you can watch Orb, movies and any video you like in full screen without any rotation of the screen, most Dash/Excalibur owners have three media players on their device, SlingPlayer, windows media player and the TCPMP player!

Sorry for being a noob but is this a folder in my phone or how do I edit the reg in my phone.

Thanks

Sure...that helped and now I can see videos in landscape mode. However, if the video does not meet the screen requirements (i.e., too large) then the image is cropped and I don't get the whole she-bang. You know what I mean?

HOW CAN I FIX IT TO MAKE IT FIT MY SCREEN BUT STILL IN LANDSCAPE AND FULLSCREEN MODE??

Thanks so much RobC. Worked perfectly! For those who need to know how to edit the reg, you will need to download a red editor and then just follow the instructions below. I used IBE Reg Editor (free) and it worked great! 1  out of 1 found this valuable. Do you?

when you get to Rotation and add the new DWORD, what part do you put for
DWORD Value
and
DWORD Value Data?
