Ghoster hides video
« on: February 27, 2009, 02:36:15 AM »
I try to use Ghoster to concentrate on my video. I play the video with smplayer, not in full screen but in a normal window.

Test1:  :(
- launch ghoster
- double click on a video to launch in smplayer
 Result: everything is dimmed around the smplayer window (nice!), the video starts playing BUT the video screen inside the window remains black.

Test2:  :)
- close ghoster
- double click on a video to launch in smplayer. The video plays normally.
- launch Ghoster: the whole PC main screen is dimmed, the video inside smplayer window is black (not just dimmed, but totally black)
- click on the smplayer window. It gets the focus, by miracle the video appears again. Everything around is dimmed. Exactly what I want.

Conclusion: test 2 succeeds to get the result, but requires many manipulations. Could you make it work for the normal operation (test1)?

By the way, Jedi concentrate does not have this problem, so I have a solution, but I am sure that you can fix this.

No idea why there is this problem?

By the way, it is easy to reproduce, you just need to download the player here.
