Yeah, currently the output screen is a configuration setting,
independent of where the window actually resides.

You're right, that would be much better (and would reflect what most
other media players do in multi-mon setups), I'll change the patch to
reflect that today (and more properly use the config_Get* function., so
the new settings should only take effect after restarting VLC,

I already have it done (determining which monitor has the greatest area
of the main window), except I can't for the life of me figure out where
I can get the coordinates of the main window. The vout_thread_t struct
and its members only provide width/height and the X11 Window IDs for
child windows (which all return 0 for x/y coords using
XGetWindowAttributes). Any hints there? :) Do I have to get the actual
wxWidget and then take the coordinates? Thanks.
