[vlc-devel] OSD sliders on OSX.

I was wondering why i no longer had OSD volumesliders and position  
indicators in OS X. The play/pause icons were still present, so that  
wasn't the issue.

It seems that in hotkeys.c the presentation of these elements is  
wrapped in if( p_vout->b_fullscreen ).
In the 0.9 tree it was if( !p_vout->p_window || p_vout->b_fullscreen )  
Since p_window was NULL on OSX, this condition was always true.  
However the p_window has been removed, and now p_vout->b_fullscreen  
has become important. It seems however that on OSX, this value is  
never true, probably because of the opengl provider chaos that  
surrounds the vout's. I verified this, by checking with  
var_GetBool( p_vout, "fullscreen" ), if this fixes the problem and it  

I'm not sure what the desired behaviour even is actually. When do we  
want to show these 'sliders' ?
