Looks good. You patch doesn't apply properly (it's missing some of the
commit, author and date lines it seems).

Btw, would it be possible to do something like "maximise on the mouse's
screen if double clicking (or over the video)", "maximise on the
appropriate screen when clicking the hotkey or interface button"
otherwise (where appropriate would have to be defined)?
