Hi Mark.

I was not able to get it to work using lock screen.   I did get it to 
change size correctly by always 
ensuring that the player window never goes outside 
of the stack boundries while the two sizes are 
being increased or decreased.   To hide the changes 
for the user I used the hide stack command.  One 
issue around this is that I need to get the height and 
width of the movie loaded in the player.  However 
these are not updated till the stack is shown so I have 
to set the filename of the player, show the stack, retrieve 
the native movie height and width, hide the stack, resize 
the player at a multiple of the movie's native  height then
 the stack accordingly, then show the stack.   
The hiding and showing creates a visual 
flash but is better than viewing all the contortions as the
 player shifts into its new size.  I am sure there 
is an easier way to do this but it seems to work.  

Is the problem with lock screen a reported bug?
