Hi Brian,

I agree in the case of full-screen video games, but we don't make  
those in Rev (yet?). I'm not sure that I agree in the case of video  
players. When a video player changes the screen resolution, the movie  
is often displayed with a bad screen geometry and I wouldn't recommend  
it. There is rarely need to change the screen resolution for kiosk  
applications, because those run on computers with system settings  
specifically adjusted to the software.
