View Full Version : 7900GT System Doesn't Support Overlays..?

I recently finished building a pc with an EVGA 7900GT CO. However, it seems that I'm having issues with overlays and video players in general. For some reason some videos work and some don't, even if they're both avi's. Also, several programs (WinDVD Creator, and DScaler) give me error messages that say my system does not support Overlays. However, I have overlays enabled in Windows Media Player and it does plaly some videos.

Winamp and WMP both are able to play the same certain videos, while VideoLAN can play all of my videos. I think this is because VideoLAN doesn't use overlays.

Does anyone know why this happens..?

Did you make sure that the AVI's are DivX or XVid type? Do you have hardware acceleration enabled in WMP?
