This command:
/usr/local/bin/xvattr -a XV_COLORKEY =v 0
simply changes the background color of X to black from blue.  It DOES
NOT solve the problem of the actual video not being directly over the
X backgroud.  I have asked many times on the forum if others have seen
this issue and no one seems to have an answer.  Has anyone figured
this out?
