Question about Smart Technologies SMART Board 580 (SB580)
While playing a DVD on the computer and projecting onto a SmartBoard SB580, the windows background and video player shows on both the computer monitor and the SmartBoard. However, the DVD video playing does not display on the Smartboard although the player and Windows background are displayed.
This is because Windows has dropped its support to provide Windows Media Player's built-in DVD codec for Windows 10 and above. So users may not be able to play DVD via Windows Media Player. You can try to download another DVD player program on your PC. You can try Leawo Blu-ray Player, which is a free 4K and region-free player.

Why is the projected video black in the Player? If you can see the Player, but the Video and Visualization pane is black, this usually indicates that your video card is not configured correctly. You can usually correct this problem by changing the video acceleration and/or overlay settings for your video card. To change video acceleration, do the following: 1. In Windows Media Player, on the Tools menu, click Options. 2. In the Options dialog box, click the Performance tab. 3. In the Video Acceleration area, move the slider to adjust the video-acceleration capabilities of your video hardware. Drag the slider to Full to use all available video acceleration. Drag the slider to None to use basic video-acceleration settings that work with most video hardware. To change overlay settings, do the following: 1. In Windows Media Player, on the Tools menu, click Options. 2. In the Options dialog box, click the Performance tab. 3. In the Video Acceleration area, click the Advanced button. 4. In the Video Acceleration Settings dialog box, under Video Acceleration, clear the Use overlays check box.
