Default windows media player

i just updated to windows media player 11.
its got this really irritating problem where when I start a video file and put it into full screen, a few seconds after going to full screen it comes out of full screen.
so if im watching episodes of something, when the next one starts (and im in full screen) it comes out of full screen a few seconds in.

anyone know a solution for this, or what might be causing it?


thanks

I use Winamp for music and VLC for all Videos.
Winamp uses the same way to add music as WMP does.
File>Add Media>Select Folder.
Winamp is so much better. Try it. If you don't like it, theres no reason you can't go back.

Winamp was created because peeps were sick of ****tyy WMP.
And they both Free.
