    Always logging into Live


    Everytime we try to watch a movie or video, W8 tries to log into xbox live.. It always fails, I have
    no idea why..

    Can we just watch movies without logging into live?

    Also, the app-preview video player: how can we watch movies full screen without a WHITE background? It seems like a black background would be much better.. Otherwise we have a white bar on top and bottom..

    Go to the normal desktop and open your videos from there, from the normal Windows Media Player, not from the Metro video player app.

    You will see this in full screen:

I really like the deeper integration with Windows Live when logging into windows 8. There was some integration with windows 7 (i believe) but if i remember correctly it was half realized. So my question is there anyway to save your live credentials with your account and just login with a normal...
