grendizer is an unknown quantity at this point

Hmmm in fact the problem was not solved by restarting Windows.
It was solved by stopping the 3d rendering running at the same time.
3d renderings use all the processor's activity.
What's weird is that I often watched divx or dvd's in the past with a 3d rendering running behind. The video playback software kind of take from the processor what it needs to play the video.
But now, BsPlayer (or the Divx decoder) "thinks" that my PC is not powerfull, as all the resources are taken by the 3d rendering. So as a result , it displays much fewer pixels.
I noticed this after I restarted Wndows. I checked the video playback and it was fine. Then closed BsPlayer, then restarted my 3d rendering and then started the video again: same problem as before.
So I shut down BsPlayer, shut down 3ds max and started the video again in BsPlayer: no problem.
