Add video to slideshow

Have taken the SDK devientArt example and pasted in the code from the SDk customvideoplayer example.
So i have a sub with a slideshow and one with a video. This works except - when the video plays the screen is black and no controls work - you can hear the audio fine.

Sub DisplaySquirrelVideoToo()

canvas = setup()
o = Setup()
o.setup()
o.paint()
o.eventloop()

End Sub


Know i'm missing one important thing about making the active screen or clearing the screen or something.
Someone point me in the right direction?
thanks

Re: Add video to slideshow

@Jenny_KT, this thread is from 9 years ago and roImageCanvas was long ago deprecated.  What are you trying to do?
