If you are looking for a very simple solution, then simply disable Hardware Acceleration for the time being - Windows will then use software rendering and you will be able to create a simple screenshot of the overlay. If you need to capture the video overlay window, this is quite a bit more difficult. Let me know if your application is so time critical that you really need to capture the hardware overlay.

I was able to accomplish this by taking a full capture of the whole screen then cropping to the window rect; taking a full capture somehow includes the contents of windows with overlay
