There's no API for this in SDL, and therefore it is technically not
possible to do so. Use x(v)imagesink instead. If you want this feature,
you'll have to add some ugly hacks to sdlvideosink to resize when you
set some property on it, and then set that property each time you
receive a configure event, or something silly like that.
