Can users please test the full screen display?

To use the full screen display, you must be using the Direct3D11 driver (Tools>Options>Playback devices). Then right click on a video and select "Toggle full screen display". There's also an assignable hot key for this function.

Especially interested if this works on Windows 7.

Yes, it does work full screen in W7/64.
-------------------------EDIT---------------
V6 will not play the HEVC.TS file it created. VLC/MPClassic NO problem playing file.
----------------------------------------------

And HEVC.TS (from dvd.mpg) does work now. MP4 still crashes/closes.

Only 1/3 of 6core/12threads used. :(
27 fps with default TS profile.
10 times slower with quality options turned up. Ouch!

Is the HEVC still an issue?

Does the MP4 crash/close occur on save or when you try to open it.

Dan,

Yes. I just tested 791 and it closed after about 5 seconds. I sent you email to 'support' with info from Application log.

Here is one way to break 791 at full screen, in Windows 7 Premium, 64-bit.
Run VRD Version 6.4.85.791 - Apr 5 2019.
Load an input video file.
Start ad scan in non-interactive mode.
Abort ad scan.

Now if you stretch the main window (e.g drag a corner), the window contents do not get re-scaled.
Worse, if you now full-screen the main window by clicking its Maximize icon, you can then neither Restore Down, nor Minimize successfully, you can only Exit.

Regards,
TobyW

Unable to duplicate, wonder if the Ad-scan is leaving the whole application in a weird state.

1. Can you try again and make sure it's repeatable?
2. On Tools>Options>Playback which video driver are you using?

Hi Dan,
The Video driver is Direct3D11. The behaviour is unaffected by settings of Video Driver, Deinterlace, and YUV acceleration.

This is repeatable every time for me, provided I precisely follow the steps I described. That is:
- Launch VRD6, beta 791c
- Load a video (e.g. an SD or HD .mpg file raw from off-air, or .ts from QSF, or .mp4 from H.264 transcode)
- Set ad-detective to Default Settings profile (as installed by 791c), with CommonParameters/UseInteractive UNCHECKED (lest it was changed in previous session)
- Start ad-detective scan (by clicking blue button in GUI)
- After a few seconds, stop the scan (by clicking the Abort button in the Pause/Abort message box)
- Click the Maximise button (at top right of window's title bar, between the Minimize and Close buttons)

And then you can experience any of the following:
- clicking Close (rightmost) button on title bar: does exit VRD as expected.
- clicking Restore (middle) button on title bar, to restore original size: does nothing.
- clicking Minimize (left) button on title bar: window disappears, and won't restore via toolbar icon.

More info, I've just discovered:
1. Dragging the title bar will restore the maximised window to its normal size.
2. If you hit Pause before hitting Abort to stop the scan, the problem does not arise.

BTW: Well done to you guys at VideoRedo, VRD6 is looking awesome!

It is great to see this long requested feature come to the new version. Tested on Win7 pro 64 and it works beautifully! Have a couple of minor suggestions.

- When in full screen mode have the mouse pointer become invisible after short inactivity period (5 sec?)
- Add volume control to mouse scroll function options

Tested on Windows 7 and 10.
I love this feature, and I thank so much for your work in this regard. I think I have a minor problem for using it as a video player, while playing as it will not prevent my screen saver or power saver mode from triggering on. And I need to move the mouse once while until video playing completed. Other video players have no such problem. This is not a big deal anyway. Thanks!

FYI, I use Chromecast from Chrome browser, which allows me to cast the desktop (ie any program) to my TV. VRD6 works fine in full screen mode doing this.

Sorry, didn't see this earlier. If you use Chrome Internet Browser, you have the option to enable Casting to Chromecast device. IIRC, it's initially in the settings (three vertical dots at the top right), but you can then add a button to the menu bar. When you select, it asks what you want to cast, tab or desktop . Select desktop, and the whole of PC screen is mirrored on the Chromecast equipped TV. Works well, but I have a slight lag, which can make the editing a little awkward until you get used to it.
