A solution to an old problem.

My graphics card (nvidia geforce2) plays things very dark, so I NEEDED my overlay to correct my video. However, I kept trying to load an Xvid, and it kept saying "OVERLAY FAILED."

The solution was so simple it is embarrasing: I had the folder open where the video was, and thus the tiny Windows Media Player PREVIEW WINDOW was open... Apparently my graphics card was focusing on that instead of giving me my overlay. That was why the overlay wouldn't work. I just closed the folder, and the overlay popped right back up.

I realize there are probably dozens of causes for Overlay failures, though. This is just a quick fix for a silly one that I should have caught onto earlier.

If this helps anyone, I'd appreciate a reply post.
