Im messing around with some code I found online.
what it does is play a video file, and creates an overlay image when the video loads and plays it with the overlay.

Couldn't figure out a couple of things.

ist, the video player doesn't seem to  be loading.


2nd, having an error thrown on this line:
MediaItem.OverlayRect = New Rectangle(New Point(30, 10), New Size(MediaItem.VideoSize.Width, 30), MediaItem.VideoSize.Height, 10)

getting an error system.drawing.point cannot be converted to integer

What comes back from the new point call isn't an integer needed for the rectangle api but a point object. It seems you want the rectangle in the upper left so just putting a zero in as the argument should work
