Summary0014755: In windowed mode, videos don't play within the Windows size / player displays incorrectly
DescriptionIf the user plays a video and switches to Windowed mode
--> the video plays at a window size larger than the MM5 window!
--> the player panel displays in the middle of the newly sized window with incorrectly positioned/sized buttons!

It would be preferable if it played without expanding the window.

Verified 2101

Test note: Screen Res needs to be lowered below Video Size as I didn't had any issues on my 1920x1200 screen with 192x1080 videos so stting screexsize to 1376x768 verify sync

Tested 2101. Although the video now plays at the correct size, the player still renders incorrectly both in cases where the window's size imposes vertical constraints and when it doesn't.

See new images.

Can you send me HTML of the main window ?

Just reproduced for the first time ever, html is ok, the only wrong thing is, that the window with the player control has wrong height for some reason (div with player has correct height, only body/window height is bigger).

Tested 2108 and initially the problems were almost completely 's almost completely resolved, except for a minor glitch:
a) after expanding to full-screen, the right and bottom borders of the Window have graphic artifacts (upon returning to normal or full-window mode). See end of the video.

But upon further testing, it seems that MM5 can somehow switch to a mode in which the original problems recur. i.e. :
b) player displays incorrectly . See begining of the video.
c) A&D window switches to a mode in which the A&D title bar stops displaying the 'Full window' and 'full screen' buttons.

I haven't been able to figure out _what_ caused MM to start exhibiting issues b) and c), but they definitely weren't occurring when I first started testing the build. The only thing I can think of is maybe that I disabled A&D mode, but re-enabling it doesn't seem to solve the problem.

c) fixed in build 2112. Repro. steps were:
1) run MM, run video, switch to full window mode
2) close MM
3) run MM, run video, it starts in full window mode
4) switch to art window mode

I was testing video and noticed that the player still renders incorrectly sometimes (issue b). The problem seems to be video-specific and only occurs in videos with certain aspect ratios, though it's actually related to the aspect ratio of the video as it relates to the aspect ratio of the MM window--videos/windows sized such that the video takes up most of the vertical space (i.e. no black bands above/below) seem to trigger the problem.

(note: tested with Lana del Ray - Ride)

Tested 2223 and the last issue that I raised isn't in fact a bug--it's related to the fact that I resized the window to a size that vertically constrained the video.
