    Video Playback at Background

      Is it possible to have video playback in full screen at the background smoothly?

          It's possible, but probably not adviseable as a general rule.

          In order to do it you'll need run the video with DTS (Direct to Screen) turned OFF. This will render the video as a layer in Director, but with a significant performance penalty due to the fact that it cannot use hardware accelleration. So you'll need a very fast computer to acheive reasonable results. Result will also vary depending on how you encode the video.

          So unless you have a one-off project such as an installaion or presentation where you have complete control over the playback machine (preferrably you have it as an authoring or test machine), it's probably not a viable option.
