Director项目 笔记本不能全屏播放?

  看标题可能很多人会误解,那就仔细看看内容吧。不过如果你不是用director开发工具制作多媒体项目的,你就可以忽略下面的内容,跳过这篇文章了。 :)


题外话: 做交互多媒体的朋友应该都知道,director实现全屏的方式只有那么几种:

3、通过程序调整stage为客户机的分辨率大小,即 拉伸多媒体界面

以上几种方式,是我们能够想到的,其中 1、2、4 这几种方式应该应用的最普遍。第3种拉伸后画面的资料会比较差出现锯齿,一般采用较少。第5种方案,只是理论上的,不可能付诸实行的,因为不可能知道客户机的显示器分辨率的大小,所有可能的情况太多,也就不可能制作那么多的应对措施。


??? 问题出在哪呢? 我这边测试了几台机器一切正常,突然一个念头闪过,客户那边的所有电脑的是笔记本,难道是笔记本不能被正常修改显示器的分辨率和刷新率,我想,这下可惨了,没辙了。
