What sort of notable differences video-wise are there between the two
If you're using a current SVN version, the offscreen surface is now
initially allocated at the full display size rather than just the playing
video size, so perhaps the problem machine has a very high resolution on
its display, but can't support allocating a surface that large?
You'll probably have to tweak the vo_direct3d code to pass through the
actual Windows error from the CreateOffscreenPlainSurface call to have
a better idea of what is failing on the target system.
