I haven't tested vf_bmovl2 in a fair while.  It's deprecated in favor of
vf_osd, so I no longer maintain it.  You should probably port your
application to vf_osd, which you can check out here:


When I find the time, I plan to release a new patch to incorporate the
suggestions I recently received.

The main difference between vf_bmovl2 and vf_osd is that a fair bit of
logic has been removed from vf_bmovl2.  vf_osd is conceptually simpler,
providing a single BGRA shmem buffer that your application can write to.
Then your app issues a slave command to instruct mplayer to update that
region of the OSD.
