I need some help in getting a video played in the back ground of my win form where I will add some controls that would display some text and other stuff.
What I did until know is.
Using interop and Com I am able to play the video inside a panel, but here is the problem if I add a control inside the panel ex.
When the video loads it is hiding everything in the same control (panel1) but not all the form unless I set the size of panel1 to be as the same size as the form.(I don’t want every thing to be hidden I want the controls to show over the video with an alpha transparency level )
What I did is instead of adding the textcontrol to the panel1 I am adding it to the main form so I am being able to put the text over the video, but I am losing the benefit of having an alpha (transparency) for my text.
I would weolcme any suggestion to solve this and any alternative solution
Simply what I am trying to achieve now is to have a news bar like the one that you can see on CNN by adding text over the video
Thanks for reading this.
