I am currently working on a Project that is using Havok's Vision Engine under Direct X 9 x86 under Windows Vista/7/8 and it requires the use of cutscenes to help convey the story of the game.

The Problem I'm encountering is when we attempt to play back our movies in Full Screen Mode using WMV's the videos flip themselves horizontally where the top is at the bottom and bottom is at the top. We believe this has to do with how Direct X handles its draws and as a result of us painting Direct Show Directly to the window it causes the video to flip.

Oddly enough this problem does not occur with AVI's, but we can't use AVI's due to their dated nature and DirectShow's strict enforcement of the AVI container.

I'll post code this evening when I get back to my workstation.

Direct X9
DirectShow 7.0
Havok Vision Engine
WMV: 720p 16:9 (Codec's I'll list later)

So this is what I have thus far.
