Description Johnny Proton 2007-12-30 22:33:02 EST
Description of problem: Cannot resize window on most movies.  

How reproducible: Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. This application is really bad at discovering the correct dimensions of a
movie.  It always tries to open them up in a little postage stamp sized window,
even if the movie is 640x480. 
2. When I try to resize the movie window, the application freezes.

you should be able to set the default the app will use for dimensions via
"View->Window size". In order to have it remembered you need to close gxine
correctly (i.e. not let it crash, or kill...).

As for the freeze bug, I verified it is an upstream bug (i.e. not a packaging
bug) so it would be convenient if you could file a bug in upstream
(http://bugs.xine-project.org/enter_bug.cgi) and let me know about it either
here, or by cc-ing me in their bugzilla.

I know it's been a long time, but since I just got Fedora 9 and this is still a
problem, I went ahead and did this.  Just don't understand how no one fixed this
yet, unless they are discontinuing GXine or something.
Comment 3 Martin Sourada 2008-08-01 04:23:31 EDT
Err... this has been fixed in development version of gxine in upstream, which is
available in rawhide, however as it is development version I don't want to push
it to Fedora 8/9. The rawhide version (maybe you'd need to rebuild the package
for F9), should however work for you.
