That sounds sensible. In the end, the user will not change these things so often, but the menu seems a better place to me than prefs (especially for the three existing items). 
I'm just consider if it would make sense to also move / add some video related things into this menu like fullscreen or always on top (but then these items should be also persistently (always open in fullscreen and make everything "always on top"))?

Yeah, its a nice place. I saw that in finder and also in iTunes, in both applications I have not found any other place where you could change these settings (or did I overlooked something?). But of course it does not harm if its duplicated in the menu and more user find it, probably.
