Windows Media Player zoomed in

Since a few days I'm struggling with a problem with Window Media Player, which I never had before.
This is how the video is supposed to be:

This is what my media player shows:

(Sorry for the big print screens)
As you can see, it is completely centered and zoomed in. I already tried to zoom out by right clicking and go to video and change to 200% or something, didn't make it work. Media player shows it like this by every single video. I tried to watch the video's in VLC and it did work completely normal, so the video's aren't the problem.. Furthermore, when I try to play the video's in PowerPoint or windows movie maker, it is also centered and zoomed in.. I tried a lot to make it work, I tried every single thing I could find on Google..
Does anyone know how to solve this?

Does nobody know it?):

It seems to be a pain to many.

Which Media Player do you have? You don't have any zoom programs working? Need to ask...

If MP 12, you might check

... although you've probably done it? You have the latest Windows updates?

when we watch videos, if we want to zoom the videos then we do the significant digits such as alt-3 is for the zoom the images, and alt-2 is for normal playback size back. window media player not working
