This not really _WRONG_. I agree, that it _SHOULD_ be cross-platform, 
but the only windowing systems which support this functionality from 
within Qt is windows (and mac but i have no mac). At least google lets 
me suspect that.

See https://bugreports.qt-project.org/browse/QTBUG-10877 for example.

There are already some other windows-specific features in VLC, so why 
should that not be included until someone finds a better solution?
