    hummm! once a MOS crew, told me that CVisionPPC supports overlay.

    Where have you got that tooltype?

    Tried here but no way to run MPlayer in overlay mode. (nor FroggerMOS)

    overlay mode in bvision is well known fact (and it works on Os3.9).

    from CGX/changes.txt file:

    cgxvideo.library
    ================

    Changes for 42.1

    - added support for "destructive" vlayers (CVision/BVisionPPC). This
    type of vlayer can destroy graphics data and requires additional layer
    refresh.

    "overlay mode in bvision is well known fact (and it works on Os3.9)."

    what app/player have you got running in overlay under AmigaOS/BVision?

    I am not sure MPlayer supports the special video format(s?) used by the BVision overlay emulation.
    You should try Frogger, AMP and such old players which were tested on a Permedia2.

    ok thanks! under AmigaOS FroggerNG_WOS works in overlay.

    Unfortunately under MOS, don't. (the MOS nor the WOS versions)
