Some apps use the video platform that's built into Windows 11. These include Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps that come with Windows 11, such as Microsoft Edge, Photos, and Movies & TV, as well as many third-party video apps you get from Microsoft Store (for example, Hulu, Netflix, and Vudu).

For these apps, you can control video playback using the video playback settings in Windows 11. For example, you can have your PC process video to enhance it (depending on your PC’s hardware) or choose to play video at a lower resolution to help save network bandwidth.

When watching movies and videos on battery power, you can select to optimize video playback for battery life or video quality.
