@pennhaven, thank you very much
@berdulasio, i'll mess around with that soon and see what you mean. thanks for your input.
*EDIT - this is fixed now
fyi, everything was correct in the osd, the image was valid. the problem was it was transparent. it was there, you just couldn't see it.
so i just pointed youtube and mediafly to different images that i added, made a few adjustments and it works.
full credit goes to berdulasio for this fix. thank you for finding the problem...and the solution.
i'll post a new release 12/28
