Cannot resize window on most movies.
Last modified: 2008-08-01 04:23:31 EDT
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.
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.
