WMC jittery "splash screen" in Windows 10 1803?

Post#1 » Sun May 06, 2018 5:23 pm

I installed WMC_6.3.9600.16384_x64_v12 on Windows 10 1803. While the functionality once inside WMC seems to be ok, the "splash screen" is jittery. You see the WMC logo briefly then it disappears, then you are on the navigation screen. Audio appears ok. It doesn't smoothly open. WMC opened smoothly on 1709. Anyone else have this issue? Thanks

In my case this came about when I ran into problems with 1709 and starting messing with the compatibility settings - mainly "Enable Fullscreen Optimizations" and "Scaling performed by"...

maybe try a different refresh rate. WMC runs better 59hz than 60hz for me

Do you have the newest video driver ? Do you have DirectX installed ?

WMC's animations are not always smooth if DirectX is not installed, this goes back to Windows 7...

Yes, tried all the suggestions above and still no help. Not impressed with 1803, problems with network and installing drivers. Think they rushed it!!!
