    Hi everyone I got a problem. If I have a video playing I use VLC player for most of my videos, and I open an image the black or dark parts of the image become transparent and I can see the video playing on vlc player through the image. This happens on webpages (I use Opera as my web browser), it happens when I just open a image (I use IrfanView to open images)
    and even if I have a folder open on my C:/ or F:/ drive, I have it set that all folders are thumbnail view, even in the small thumbnail the black/dark areas become transparent and I can see the video through it. This happens on all image formats jpg, jpeg, gif, png, etc. If I close my vlc player everything is fine the images are no longer transparent but it happens anytime my VLC player is running. Is there anyway to fix this? Any help would be appreciated.

    I just tried playing some videos with Windows Media Player and it looks like the pictures are not see through with WMP. The problem is that WMP does not support alot of file formats. It won't play flv files alot of files it says it doesn't have codecs for and the videos won't play. Most videos work on WMP but not all of them and I have never had those problems with vlc player.

    the problem must be with the way VLC player codecs are interacting with your video card. I honestly don't know a cure for this apart from not using a video player in the background while opening or viewing other images

    Have you tried
    1 opening VLC
    2 select tools
    3 select preferences
    4 on show settings select all (not simple, its on the bottom left)
    5 goto interface
    6 open Main interface fully( the little triangle)
    7 select Qt
    8 On the Qt interface go to the 6th line it says

    Windows opacity between 0.1(transparent) and 1 (no transparency)
    make sure thati is set to 1 (at the end of that line)

    See if that works.
