Hi Xavier,

thanks for testing gst-player...

This is a metacity bug. gst-player use metacity to fullscreen its own window and metacity should only fullscreen on the head the application is currently running on.. I confirmed this behaviour with Havoc Pennington (author of metacity)

> - various *frequent* crashes

Please report backtraces of these crashes with explanations if you want me to try to fix those. (use bugzilla)

> - when video is paused, refresh doesn't work

What do you call refresh ? (nautilus embedded bonobo component ?)

> - fullscreen isn't disabled from the menu when playing mp3

There's no reason to disable fullscreen in audio playback. I m planning to integrate vizualisation plugin so there will be video playback on audio play.

> - nautilus view doesn't scale with window

I haven't been trying the nautilus embedding of gst-player yet.. That's something i consider as non-stable

scaling without xv is not yet supported.

Thanks for feedback
