    smplayer size - zoom problem


    Hi all,
    usually when I click on a video file, smplayer will open and the size of the player
    is the size (resolution) of the file - as it should be.

    However, if I play a 1080p file (my desktop is only 1680*1050 so smplayer
    maximizes and scales it to fit). So far so good.

    When I close smplayer after the 1080p file played, further instances of smplayer
    open in maximized mode (as above) and the movies inside is partially zoomed.
    The zoom factor and the size are wrong, and neither are the controls
    responsive, ctrl-1, shift-E. They do nothing until you hit the "restore",
    top right middle button, and even after that the movie is still the wrong size.

    Is it a bug in smplayer, or some setting or other?
    Thanks for any info.
    Dave

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Probably a bug in smplayer. Does it fix itself if you shut down smplayer and then restart with the new video? Have you tried other video players (Kaffeine, VLC, etc)?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!

    Yes, after each file played I'm shutting down smplayer. To initiate the new instance
    I merely single-click on the media file and smplayer opens..
    The problem does not occur in Kaffeine.

    Perhaps I'll see if I can track down the home of smplayer and report it there.
    Thanks -
    Dave
