Transparent video playback in Xojo

For a normal movie player, you can use the MoviePlayer control in Xojo. But if you need something special like transparency, you can use MBS Plugin and the AV* classes:

The tricks used here are:
  • Fill window background with transparent color
  • Disable window shadow.
  • Set window to be non opaque.
  • Set player layer to be non opaque.
  • Set player layer to have no background color.
Only if all settings are right, the transparency works.
The example will be included in next prerelease. Or email for a copy today.
