[vlc-devel] Finding a stream's video width/height

Hi all, I'm trying to add a "resize to native video size" method  
(commonly known as the "Video Size: 100%" menu option) to the Mozilla  
plugin, and was wondering what's the easiest way to go about it.

Is it possible to find out a video's width/height via a variable,  
i.e. using VLC_VariableGet and friends?  If not, I see the best  
option as modifying src/video_output/video_output.c, so that it  
var_Creates some new "native-video-{width,height}" variables that has  
the original video width, and then adding a method to the Mozilla  
plugin to query the vout object for those variables and perhaps set  
the video size to 100%.  (Or perhaps simply return the video width/ 
height to the Javascript caller, which can resize it).

Does this sound like a sane approach, and have I missed any functions  
that the Mozilla plugin can access to get a stream's width/height?

Thanks as always,
