Hi,
I want to create a software that runs a video that has its background set as transparent.
So there would be a subject that is visible but the background (traditionally blue) will be transparent so the other siftwares or desktop behind is visible and accessable.

check mp3dancer from  mp3dancer.com

I am okey to get any format video.
I need to work on Vb
any Idea how I can make parts of a window transperent.
