[vlc-devel] [PATCH 1/6] vout_window: add rendering suspension/resuming callbacks

Hi,

As answered by the others here, STATE_ABOVE/BELOW won't
be equivalent to Ā«visible/not visibleĀ», which could be
another naming for the callback.

Indeed, you could have STATE_BELOW and still be visible
on desktop since it designates wallpaper mode.

I don't really want to add a NOT_VISIBLE state here
because it doesn't seem to combine correctly with, like,
wallpaper mode + NOT_VISIBLE.

I hope the intent is clearer.

Regards,
