Optimization or Capture Failed - Video Not Recognized
Issue - Omnivore fails to optimize and shows "Waiting on player..." even though you are playing the video, or the overlay is not snapping correctly. This could be a hardware acceleration or overlay issue.
1 - Changing Windows Desktop Themes can help
Some players like Window Classic or Basic Theme, some want a Eros themes. So first thing to do if you are getting weird overlay issues is, right click the desktop and change the themes between those. That usually fixes the issue.
2 - Turning off hardware acceleration in the video player
Additional Tip - Try Opening Two Instances of the Proprietary Player
Below is a video showing how important it is to understand the playback software:
Windows 7 and Vista — Turning on/off Aero
Windows XP — Turning on/off Hardware Acceleration
