Video not shown. Change alpha value of a plane


I am a beginner in Qt + OpenGL ?( [QT] . I am working with a browser, built using QT and OpenGL, on an ARM machine with customized Embedded Linux OS. My browser works fine with the UI part, it needs to render. But I need to play some video when a particular URL is loaded, Since my platform doesnt support video tag(I’ll need to modify driver, which is not recommended for my requirement),:rolleyes: what I do now is parse the URL loaded, and if it matches with the one, of the video, my browser invokes the mediaplayer. But I can hear the audio, video is not shown. What I see on the screen is the UI of the previous URL loaded. I am afraid it gets played on the background. Such a conclusion because, the mediaplayer logs show the state as playing, and audio is well played. I need to change the transparecy of the graphics plane and make it completely transparent. If there are any opengl calls to change the alpha value, please do help.
I have tried using setwindowopacity(), but it doesnt work. ?( ?( :(

Req: Change the transparency of graphics plane

Please do help….
