OT: worse video rendering on Vista vs. XP

Hello,

My app plays mov videos and the stack is resizable, including the
videoplayer. Comparing the quality of the video rendering on Vista and Win
XP there is a big difference.

Playing the video in the original size, the quality on both systems is
comparable good.

But when resizing the video, making it bigger, XP seems to have a much
better rendering engine as Vista. On Vista the increased Video looks very
poor fragmented, as a very bad compressed jpg. I know, that the video can't
keep the original quality, when resizing (bigger), but I wonder what makes
the difference between XP and Vista. Perhaps some gimmick Vista options as
the aero look have an influence on the video quality, but actually I don't
even know, where to switch off the aero look for testing.

Any experience with this behaviour out there or any ideas where to start
searching?

Thanks

Tiemo
