Re: grab a screenshot with overlay data in mplayer

No, it isn't possible. As the name suggests, the overlay is a bitmap that is "overlaid" on top of the screen. This is done by the graphics card as it's outputting the screen to the monitor. Hence, it isn't part of the screen bitmap, and won't be there when you take a screenshot. This is also why overlay doesn't play nice with composited windows.

If you had an external device that captured the graphics card output (i.e., a framegrabber), then you would be able to capture the overlay too.
