Hey guys,
I managed to patch mplayer and Xgl to use the video plugin. The video
plays but the window is just white. I can see the silhouette of the
people in the video when I make it transparent.
Do you guys have any idea? Am I missing a step? Can anyone shed any
light on my situation? Thanks.
Here is the output:
