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?
