@Stefan Monnier - I was trying something like that - but apparently elementary doesn't cater for embedding windows under a top level window.

Well, seems like I'm really getting itchy now-a-days!

This definitely does help a lot. So what I understand is that I:-
1. Make a main window
2. size it right
3. then make another with the override bit set and position it manually
4. Use one for controls and 1 for video.
That should solve the problem. Will try it and post results. Hopefully I can push out an alpha release by the weekend - unless I get stuck elsewhere.

Well, if it's even remotely slower - I think I'll prefer the faster solution.
I like the FR screen for its resolution and like running it with the software (instead of the software_16) engine for the sheer pleasure of how good it looks. But, the speed sucks. Don't want to add to it.
