JSI Tip 8246. When you play a DVD move on Windows XP, semi-transparent windows, or dialogs, from other programs may flicker?

The subject problem occurs because there is a conflict between the DirectDraw features that your DVD movie player uses and the Windows XP features that present semi-transparent windows and dialog boxes.

The only workaround is to close the semi-transparent window or dialog.

NOTE: You may have to exit the program that presents the semi-transparent object if it won't let you close the window or dialog box.
