Run the new RRConfig.exe and on the GENERAL Page 2 settings check VIDEO AUTOHIDE and set the seconds you want to display it.
So... I stopped working on my carpc for a while... like a long while. I got my setup working with a custom skin I made and everything a long time ago. It worked great, everything was perfect - so I left it alone. Fast Forward to last week... my hdd dies (3 years of usage in a stiff/low car... on a hdd I bought used for $30.. can't complain!).
SO - now I got another hdd, set everything up again... and decided since the carpc is out of my car, I might as well tweak it a bit, add new stuff, etc. I was messing around with some of the screens on my Road Runner skin, and I added a bunch of GESTUERSON and GESTUERSOFF commands in various places, because sometimes gestures get in the way. I also made a few other minor changes, but I'm not going to list them all because I don't think they are relevant to this problem.
Now when I go into my video player, the buttons/slider/etc don't autohide after a few seconds like they used to. I KNOW I ran into this problem once before... like a YEAR ago or more - and I came on MP3car.com and found the solution - but I've been searching now and can't seem to find anything. I remember it was a simple problem/solution - so hopefully someone can point me in the right direction...
IIRC... when I had this problem last time it had something to do with either gestures or transitions.
my rr.ini has "transition=9" as one of the lines.
