Are you talking about the behavior equivalent to the -ontop option in mplayer?
I agree, that can be very handy sometimes, especially if you have a widescreen
monitor and can spare a corner. ;-)
Yes, with a widescreen monitor its a very neat feature to use.
For mplayer the particular behaviour I was talking about is kind of moot
as the window with the video closes when the video ends. So there is no
unnecessary windows hanging around. But usually for the other players,
they still hang around staying "on top". Totem is smart enough to know
the video has stopped playing, hence no point in staying on top of all
the other windows. :) So intuitive!
Open source is the future. It sets us free.
