Video Overlay Issue with Taskbar transperancy

Postby Siddhesh » Wed Jan 21, 2009 10:17 am


Well all aspects of shellenhancer work fine for me; but..

There is an issue of conflict , I think.

Whensoever TASKBAR Transperency is enabled, videos files ( mpeg/avi/wmv )
show a blackscreen in FULLSCREEN mode. However they play fine in window
I pressume it has something to do with OVERLAYS, bcoz only those players that
use overlays are affected. Media Player Classic isnt affected though, as i use the
Haali renderer.

THE only way to watch movies fullscreen with other players ( when TASKBAR
transperncy enabled ) is to DISABLE taskbar transperancy and relogin to windows.
Its the same with my pinnacle tv tuner. ( Actually Pinnacle PCTV doesnt show anything even in window mode )

I have enabled shellenhancers Transparent menu and window transperency options
and have no problems with them.......its only the taskbar transperancy that creates that glitch.

My system config is P4 2.8GHz single core, 1GB 300/333mhz ddr RAM, GeForce 5500FX.
I am on XP SP3.

I'm afraid there is not much I can do about this. It's probably a bug in how Windows is handling transparency :(
Did you try to put the taskbar on auto-hide and see if that solves the issue?
