Can somebody that uses vlc tell me what happens in situation described in the title?

On mine, when i start vlc after exiting in fullscreen mode, it forgets the window size that i had before going to fullscreen mode.

    Yes, VLC behaves like that. – cristian mos Nov 6 '17 at 18:28

    This question does not appear to be about elementary OS, within the scope defined in the help center. – Axel Advento Nov 7 '17 at 17:06
  • Hi. I understand, but i wanted to know if other elementary users are having the same issue as me. – Daisuke Jigen Nov 7 '17 at 22:29

Try this, https://superuser.com/a/368759/699547

  1. Open any video and resize the VLC view screen to whatever size you want. Drag the corners and then go up to the Menu-bar at the top... Tools>Preferences>Interface>UNCHECK "Resize interface to video size" and click save.

  2. Close your video and reopen to verify the correct setup.

Its a two-step process. Drag and size your viewing screen, then UNCHECK the "Resize Interface to video size" and SAVE.

Strictly speaking this question is off-topic for EOS stack overflow, however I've tried to answer it anyway.

  • Hi. Unfortunately is not that. I always leave that option disabled. – Daisuke Jigen Nov 7 '17 at 12:01
