Question  
I get no video / black box when playing movies in Windows Vista
Answer  

Windows Vista does not allow use of hardware video overlay when “Aero” mode is turned on.

To solve this issue you can either:

turn off Vista “Aero” mode,

or

disable YUV overlay renderer (this may slightly decrease playback speed) : uncheck “Use overlay if available” options in preferences video tab.
