Playing a video resizes winamp bento

First off, i love bento, i think it's killer. but for some reason every time i open a video file, it resizes itself. Here is what winamp normally looks like:

but after i play a video file it looks like this, and i have to resize it again:

This is getting semi-irritating, as i enjoy watching videos on winamp as well as listening to tunes. Please let me know if this is a known bug, as i searched the forums but wasn't sure what people were calling this.

It is not a bug at all, but it is a well known fact that when using a single UI skin such as Bento, which utilizes "panels", that if the Video Preferences are set to "Resize video window to fit video", that this will indeed happen.

So... either:
  1. Select a non-SUI skin (one with detachable windows), and leave the Video Preferences set to "Resize video window to fit video", or...
  2. Use the Bento (or other SUI skin), but UNcheck "Resize video window to fit video" in Winamp preferences > General Preferences > Video > Video Preferences > Video Playback

Don't email or PM me concerning Winamp. Instead, either start a NEW TOPIC or post a REPLY in the appropriate thread in these forums. This will also benefit others who may have a similar question or problem. But before posting, please first Search the forums and read all FAQs and all Sticky threads.

A little late here

Also, for the Bento skin...
View Menu > Skin Settings > in the Multi Content panel (middle top) highlight/select 'Window Sizing' > select 'Prevent Video to Resize Winamp'

Please do not PM me for tech support. Any request for tech support through PM will be ignored.
