Default Movies on Laptop

hello friends,
When I watch movies on my laptop they always display in a very small screen? My screen resolution is 1680 * 1050. I used to see movies bigger than this on my PC that has a screen resolution of 1024 * 800. What is the problem?

What size is your laptop screen? Maybe the viewing space is smaller than the regular PC that you're use to. I know when I watch movies on my 14" laptop screen, it is small compared to the bigger 17" and 19" screens of my desktop.

That's probably why. The movie that you're watching plays fine right? Just smaller. Mine does that too. No matter what resolution you adjust it too, you will still see within the viewable limits of the screen.
