Hey guys,

I've been using XBMC again as my main media player but there is one thing that I could really do with and that is having the current time overlayed over all TV shows and movies while being watched. I've searched and not found much that fits what I am looking for and what I have found I don't seem to be able to understand or get to work.

I assume this would require changes to the skin, and thought that meant changing the videooverlay.xml but I have tried that with what I thought was right but nothing seemed to work.

Can anyone advise me on how to do this, or if it's at all possible?

Basically, I would like to have the current time down in one of the corners of the screen (or up, makes no difference really) like on the news etc. although anywhere and any size would be a start.

Any and all help is appreciated.

Videooverlay.xml should work, but thewindows must be altered to allow overlay being displayed:<allowoverlay>yes</allowoverlay>
