I have recently installed Windows 7 and the latest version of VLC media player. Anyhow, the "Always on Top" feature of VLC media player is not functioning.

I have a video loaded.

Works here. Windows 7 Pro x64 SP1. VLC 2.1.1. "Always on top" is only available if you load/play a video. If you just start VLC without a video loaded, the option is grayed out. – elgonzo Nov 15 '13 at 5:48

It’ll do that sometimes. VLC turns the topmost flag on whenever a video is being played and off when no video is playing, and this toggling on and off sometimes malfunctions.

It is usually fixed by either manually turning it off and then on again, or restarting VLC.
