  1. Grey overlay/ filter when playing a video


    I have had a problem with my new computer. When I play a video, (youtube video, playing a videofile with the photos app on windows, etc.) a grey "filter" comes on top of the media that is playing. Before this only happened when i played a video on a higher resolution than it was displaying, but now it happens regardless. Does anyone know of a fix of this problem?

    video not playing

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    1. May I know, which video player you are using to play the video?
    2. Are you able to play the video on any other computer?
    3. Are you facing the issue with only specific video or with all the other videos?

    This issue could also occur when the USB or SD card is corrupted when you have transferred the video.

    Try the troubleshooting methods provided below to further narrow down the root cause of the issue.

    Method 1: Try a different video player.

    1. Try to use a different USB to transfer the video, if you are playing it on other computer or device.
    2. I suggest you to try a different video player and check if it plays.
    3. You can also check on different device or computer.

    Step: Run Windows Media player troubleshooter.

    1. Press Windows + R key on your keyboard together.
    2. Copy and paste the below command and run each at a time and follow the onscreen instruction on the troubleshooter
    3. msdt.exe -id WindowsMediaPlayerConfigurationDiagnostic
    4. msdt.exe -id WindowsMediaPlayerLibraryDiagnostic
    5. msdt.exe -id WindowsMediaPlayerDVDDiagnostic
    6. Reboot the computer and check.
    If you still face the issue, reply to this post with more information.

    Hope it helps,

    Radeon Overlay not displaying all options

    Ok, I got a question. The options to hide the overlay are confusing. What are the steps to turn on the overlay in-game? Not interested in logging much at the moment. Is Alt-R part of turning it on/off?

    Windows Overlay File System Filter Driver in Windows 10

    Hi Richard,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community. Let me help you.

    The Windows Overlay File System Filter Driver service is a file system driver. If Windows Overlay File System Filter Driver fails to start, the error message will appear. Windows 10 startup proceeds, but a message box is displayed informing you that the
    Wof service has failed to start.

    I suggest you to search in your browser for Windows Overlay Files System Filter driver and
    download the appropriate version. Install the driver and restart the system.

    I hope the issue will be resolved. Keep us posted on the issue. We will be happy to assist you further.
