Just a quick note to see if this is common. Just for some background:

AMD Athlon 1100
Radeon 64 DDR VIVO
512 M of crucial pc133

I installed xp around Turkey Day. I've had a few problems but overall, I'm satisfied. Recently, I haven't been able to play dvd's. Not with Windows Media player or my ATI program. I keep getting a message that reads:


Not enough video overlay


There are more messages along with that. If anyone has a clue, please let me know!!

Funny, I use the 2D color enhancements, and never had any problems with it that I know of. What driver version are you using? I'm on 23.11.

Just curious...

I got a question for you...

How do enable the Overlay Control in the Nvidia tools? I'm not talking about the color correction tool in this question.

I used to be able to use this for DVDs without affecting the desktop, but now its greyed out. I'm not sure how I enabled them before, but I sure need them now. My DVDs are incredibly dark, and I cant lighten them up without turning the desktop glaringly bright.

Is this a driver issue? I'm wondering if yours is disabled also...

Thanks.

No doubt...I'm reminded of this almost daily, *especially* today...

Still having the problem ?

Tried reinstalling the drivers?
If so, try removing them, removing their registry entries manually and then reinstalling.

Read alot about crap ati drivers.
Presume you are either using ati dvd 4.1 or 5, both of which are buit on ravisent filters, and although 5 is a bit buggy, should work in WMP. or Zoom Player http://www.inmatrix.com ;)

Here are the messages with my ati player, I have the latest drivers from ati and like I said, It used to work fine but I'm not sure when It stopped working as I don't use it daily.

Playback has failed due to the one of the following problems:
1) Audio device is in use or not installed
2) Display overlay is not available.
3) Not enough video memory.

Kind of a variety!

With Microsoft Media its like this:


Windows media player is currently unable to play DVD video. Click details, and then click troubleshooter for information about configuring your computer to play DVD's.



Details are as follows:

Windows Media Player is currently unable to play DVD video
A troubleshooter is available to help you solve this problem.

Error ID = 0xC00D116A, Remedy ID = 0x00000000



The troubleshooter is bs.


Thanks again

Got it, I reinstalled the drivers again and then upgraded to ati's latest dvd drivers.

Thanks for the input

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
