Topic: First launch of the video window removes focus from the user interface window
So if you click something (or script something) that initially launches the video window, the video window now has the focus and so mouse wheel or keyboard no longer works for user interface.

No reason to give the video window the focus when being launched from the user interface as far as I can tell. Not a big deal but it is annoying clicking back on the user interface window. Could also be confusing for some.

is this on extended monitor or small screen popping up on single monitor?

Not sure i get what you mean, but I tried this..
Loaded a track on a deck.
Used SPACE plays/pause track.
Used CTRL+V to enable video (or click on the Master Preview panel)
Used SPACE again. Works. So keyboard still has focus and its assigned actions work.
Do i miss something here ?

I loaded a track in so it started video and without clicking or anything hovered mouse over browser and could scroll.
then closed video, restarted vdj, activated video window by clicking tellyvisual on and was still able to scroll browser without clicking anything with mouse.

am I missing something?

Yeah keyboard still works my mistake. Mouse wheel no longer works though until you click back on the user interface.

Mouse wheel works fine too. Perhaps you could further explain the exact steps when "...if you click something (or script something) that initially launches the video window,"

I can use control v or click on some effect to bring up video window.... With video window now the active window, mouse wheel stops working for me for scrolling in VDJ browser. .. This is of course assuming you have not clicked back on the user interface... I do this a lot. Start VDJ , activate something, go to scroll with mouse wheel in VDJ browser.. i kind of watch it to scroll first but interrupts my work flow. Shut VDJ down and start over and over and over haha.

does not matter what screen video window comes up on. I am using Win7.

For me... Start VDJ, ctrl V, don't click back on UI... mouse wheel stops working for browsing songs until I make the UI active window again. I can ctrl v to turn video window back off and that has effect of making the UI active window again so mouse wheel works again.
