acording to me mediaplayer uses direct draw. You can disable it in your screen settings.
so go to screen settings, go to advanced, go to troubleshooting and set it to the lowest.
this might help but probbably isn't what you are looking for.

go to settings tab...
screen setting should offer:
16/256/16bits/32bits true colors
screen size
(640x480)/(800x600)/(1024x768) etc..
there is also a button !advanced!,click on it.
now you will get another screen, show te trouble shoot tab
it should say somthing like:
"Are you having problems with your grapics hardware? ...."
there is a slide bar, set it to the minimum.
now you should be able to draw onto the surface, also you must be shure that you draw last.
