VLC currently adjusts the window size to the media dimensions on every new playlist item, even if the user manually resized the window and expects VLC to keep the window size. Since this may be annoying for users I suggest to change VLC behavior as follows:

Internally VLC should keep a state telling if the automatic window adjustment is currently enabled or not.

  • If the user choses a zoom factor in Video->Zoom menu, automatic window adjustment should be enabled to keep the zoom factor for every playlist item.
  • If the user resizes the window manually, automatich window adjustment should be disabled, the main window should then keep its dimensions disregarding which media are opened.

The first video played back in a VLC instance should still always adjust the window to the dimensions of that media file and not the stored window settings.
