    Interesting quirk in CF 1.4

    I found an interesting function of CF 1.4. I won't call it a bug, cuz I like it.

    When I am in video mode, Non-Fullscreen, and I Minimize or " Hide " CF by " show Desktop " command through desktopX widget, the little thumbnail that shows the video playing remains on the screen.

    So, CF is not visable, just the little square, and my empty desktop.
    If I click on that lone thumbnail, it goes fullscreen.

    This comes in handy for me as I have other stuff on my desktop, that I like to see also, such as " Compass / XPort " that shows direction/speed/ etc..

    I just think that it's a good bug... the only downside is that after that particular video is over, it will not go on to the next untill I bring CF back into focus. So, for Music videos etc.. that are rather short, it's a pain.

    I will get some screen caps to show what I mean.

    Does anyone else use DesktopX with CF 1.4 ??

    no it does not... for a proper minimize it would have to be implemented in Centrafuse...

    My educated guess is that centrafuse uses DirectShow, on which WMP is also based. So hence observed similarities...
