I'm going out on a limb here since you didn't give us any real useable info, but I bet you're using the Xv output, which would have this effect. Try using the -vo x11 or sdl and see how it works. I may be wrong on sdl, it might not work either, but I'm pretty sure this is the reason.

> The odd thing is that when I use knsapshot, instead of showing a blue box in place of the video, it shows
> a transparent box that is filled with whatever is under the knsapshot window.
