I am displaying a video onscreen with omxplayer using '--l 0'
Is it possible to run a python program and set it's screen layer to > 0
Expanded info :-
I am running omxplayer from within a python thread using a command line request to display an mp4 video as - omxplayer --l 0 fred.mp4
The python program is using pygame to render transparent surfaces that I wish to overlay on top of the video.
I have tried various methods, but non really allow me to use python to create the overlays. The python program does a lot of other DB work to gather the data for the overlay.
I currently have it working by restricting the video size in the omxplayer call. This allow the 'overlay' stuff to be displayed, as the video does not overwrite it.
