Full Screen Video Controls

I havent found any plug ins that do this so I turn here. It would be great for the main winamp module to pop up when I click on the full screen video or dress up the panel that already exists. More importantly than dressing up that panel would be to (as asked for earlier) increase the size of the seek bar, but also to give it the same amount of functionality as the seek bar within the WA module.

BTW - Loving 5.02!!

yes! do it.. do it now
I hate to play videos with winamp. The control bar is such a cra* (sorry). If it was well designed, there would not be any need to write beside what is the "Progress bar" or "Volume". Or do you see any descriptions in media player?
I dont understand why nobody fixes this:
Make the Progressbar larger!!! And once you are doing this, make it as large as the screen! You could take a look on the media player classic. It is no blame to copy an useful system

Beside: "ALT+F4" doesnt work in Winamp 5 in video full screen mode!

It would be nice to see this "ideas" in "THE list"

[edit] and another thing: why does the video window remain open if i play a video and afterwards close winamp and play an mp3?

Now, video playback in Winamp is very basic.

I still miss a lot of features, and of course a larger progress bar in fullscreen.

There are not enough options for an optimal configuration, e.g. auto fullscreen on start (I know Dr0 wrotes a plugin), brightness and contrast sliders, and a lot more.

I hope, the developer will improve video playback in near future.

I agree, a larger progress bar in fullscren mode, should be part of the Wishlist.

my only video request, which is already in the wishlist, is for brightness/gamma/contrast control for video.

ok, thats your personal wish and i think this is also important. But i cant understand how anybody can be satisfied with the spartanic "alpha version like" video controls

beside: I like the two guys in the banner on the top. With the "speaker heads". Could be me hehe

The video playback in Winamp 5.02 is nearly the same like in Winamp 2.91.

Not bad, but still in an early development stage.

You are right, of course we need more, who speak out for these improvments.

I fear, most people, who use Winamp, don't post in these forums.

This is the problem, and remember, some wishes from the Wishlist are old, we just can wait and hope for improvements.

in order to make more people react on this topic i have to refresh it
i hate "spam" so i have to post something useful. Just a suggestion for ya people out there who want more control of your videocontrols: Use Windows Media Player Classic. Lot of options to set the videoquality and even controloptions. (It is clear that you are only suggested to use this program until winamp gets out of the alpha stadium concerning video playback).

Dont blame me, it was this guy here: who told me this useful solution.

Didn't see this in the wish list, unless is sort of covered by "Customizable/Skinable OSD" in the video section...

else:

Another "Yes please" for the enlarged fullscreen progress bar! Would be really appreciated.

Cheers

I too wish to see that stinkin progress bar fixed. I would surely use winamp as my main media player. I have to use something else for my videos.

Please fix that bar!!!!!!!

Have a good one.

Still really hoping for this one to come true

I watch a lot of subbed anime, and occasionally miss a bit and need to go back a couple of secs...

each time to do this I have to come out of full screen mode to access a larger slider to get that few secs, rather than a couple of minutes or so!

For anyone watching movies with this otherwise great player, this addition to the wishlist would be very much appreciated.

Here's hoping



If there are any simple pluggins just for this, would love to know, have looked, but no joy so far...

This needs to be fixed immediately! This is the only reason I will not use Winamp as my default media player. I believe it is the little things that count, and for everyone to have accurate and redesigned nice full screen progress bar is what people want. Please, fix this simple annoying little thing, and you will surely make a lot of people happier.
