Transparent window background

No matter what I do I can't make the window (where the subs are shown) background color to transparent. I'm asking this because the windows is appearing on top of the movie
This is what I use to *.rt sub:

<window type="generic" duration="1:33:23.00" width="550" height="50" wordWrap="true" loop="true" bgcolor="black"/>
<font color="white" face="Arial" size="+1">

<Time Begin="0:00:24.64" End="0:00:28.59" /><clear/> ...

As u can see my my background window will display "black". If I choose "transparent" I see a white bar and no subs (because font is white) So I leave bgcolor="black"

So I thought that the problem was in the smil file (file that I'm trying to learn of more)
This is what I use in my file:

<root-layout backgroundColor="black" width="640" height="336"/>
<region id="video_region" z-index="1"/>
<region id="text_region" top="288" bottom="150" left="10" z-index="2"/>
<video src="1.rmvb" region="video_region" fill="remove"/>
<textstream src="subtitle.rt" region="text_region"
rn:backgroundOpacity="50%" fill="freeze"/>

I just want to run the movie (with audio) and one subtitle. I add rn:backgroundOpacity="50%" but this function isn't working for me why ??? Could u give me a hand please

What do u thing my smil file should look like ? Could you ppl post some examples.
