  1. I really like VLC. It is an excellent player. Has many features that I do not find elsewhere. One thing I would like to do with it is display geometry patterns that I choose (condensing, expanding, dissolving, etc). I wonder if there is a way to do that with VLC? Thanks.

  2. or, just click at “view” tab and uncheck the “Fulscreen Interface F11″
