Brightness levels for video

Hello. Hopefully someone can help me with this...

I have adjusted the brightness levels for the "desktop" under the advanced display properties in windows xp. My video card is a Radeon 9500 Pro. Basically, this advanced control allows me to dim and brighten everything that is displayed on my monitor.....EXCEPT the brightness levels of video that is played in a player such as Windows Media Player. This is very frusterating. I can move the slider and watch everything around the clip get brighter or dimmer, but not the clip itself. How do I make it so that when the video plays back, it follows the same "Brightness" rules that the rest of the computer uses. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Adjust brightness with the monitor's own controls/buttons. Don't use the radeon utility at all.
