Have you tried it, dude? I was btw not referring to the movie resolution which of course affects possibility to display it in overlay.

It's obviously not just about resolution, refresh rate counts too. And I suspect desktop resolution has something to do in BSplayer only at 16bpp color depth. Why? BSplayer makes some wonderful tricks when it comes to 256 color desktop, as desktop stays in 256 colors (8bpp -- thus reducing card memory load) and BSplayer seems to play the movie in unbelievable 32bpp depth. I have never seen anything parallel to that nor I can explain sufficiently how it is done. BST rocks. I just hope this feature makes it to 1.0.
