Of course there might be problems, nevertheless I didn't have any with -vo xv
and anyway, this is not meant to be the general, all purpose aspect switching
code, but a simple solution to do some corrections, especially when used with
Btw. -fixed-vo requires the vos to be reconfigured without uniniting them
first, so the vos having problems should be fixed then.
Imho all this window handling and aspect stuff does not belong directly into
the individual vos. They should only export their buffers and display the
image on a given x, y, width, height and colorkey like in g2.
