If you are right, that the problem stems from creating the window before
the resolution is changed, that is going to be a problem even if I do
ask for the resolution change in NuppleVideoPlayer instead of videoout_*.
Since the resolution can change for every single channel, I would have
to destroy the window and re-create it after every single resolution
change. This would only be a problem for "Live TV", but I am sure
*some* people actually still watch live tv.
