Hey John,

Does this work for you if the video resolution is *bigger* than the GUI 
resolution?  Is that what you mean by "not work well with some window 
managers," or is there some other difficulty?  What I see is that it 
plays the video in only the portion of the display that corresponds to 
the GUI size, whereas the old code (because it switched resolution and 
resized the main window before creating the video window) worked fine.

I would guess that if we could resize the video window through Qt rather 
than straight X, it would work fine.  But I can't see any way to get the 
Qt widget from within videoout.
