Window is showing static image, not updated image

Feb 26, 2016 at 8:49 PM
Hello I installed the software and tested it out. I picked a Youtube web browser showing a video.

I then start a game and put the ontopreplica on top of the game.

But whenever I minimize the web browser, the ontopreplica youtube video FREEZES. It shows a static image.

If I maximize the web browser, it sudden works again. But I have 1 monitor, I must minimize the Youtube.

How do I fix please?

Hi nonono,
this happens because of how the desktop composition system works in Windows: minimized windows that are not currently shown on screen are not updated by Windows itself. In fact, if you check the windows "thumbnails" (by hovering your mouse on top the task bar) you will notice that the small window preview also does not update when the window is minimized.

In order to keep the replica updated, keep the original window unminimized, i.e., just move the game (or anything else) on top of the web browser.
