Refresh overlay image for scoreboard updates
Posted: 11 Nov 2014 05:11 PM
I have an app that updates scores on a web page and another app that captures that small scoreboard to produce a cropped image (PNG) to use as an overlay. The original system was created for Windows Media Encoder and quite complex. Unfortunately it was Vista era and the WME overlay filter doesn't work in Windows 7 so I need a new method for overlaying scoreboards.

With Windows Move Maker I can overlay the scoreboard image but I need it to refresh every n seconds to display the updated score.

Is there an add-on or quick-fix already available?

Windows Movie Maker isn't designed for dynamic updates to a video stream.

Have you looked into Microsoft Expression Encoder 4? It's the update to Windows Media Encoder from the Vista era.

I tried Microsoft Expression Encoder and found that the overlay is applied to the whole/part with no refresh or opportunity for live update. Compared to WME it is useless for overlaying a scoreboard in real time.
