Hi Ingo, all,
Sorry for the lag on this one!
For now I've just applied your patch (making the window resizable) and have made some fixes that should allow the normal resizing of the video configuration form. I've tested it on MacOSX Snow Leopard only and would be curious to know if it's working ok on other OS-es, so don't hesitate to give it a try and play with!
When I apply the patch I could no longer see the video advanced options
(the window doesn't resize). However I see that Damian is experiencing the
same problem with the current version and for me the current version
works. We should test these on all operating systems and see what exactly
is going wrong and where. I'll have a closer look today.
I too see this from time to time on my non-dev instance, but it's not reproducible. Maybe we should stop that automatic resizing completely and let the individual panels handle it themselves (e.g. using scrollbars) when they need more space. AFAIK its normal that windows resize themselves on Mac, but on Windows it feels a bit weird.
Yes, I agree. We could also think of make the window behave differently on different OS-es, if we find a simple way to do that without duplicating a lot of code.
Ideas for the panels:
- General: Vertical scrollbar, and put the group name on top of the items to gain more horizontal space
I agree. We may put the group label on the same level as the separator.
- Audio: Two subtabs: one for the devices and one for the codecs
I'm not sure if the audio form height needs really to be reduced, but I'm also ok with the tabs.
- Video: Three subtabs: Device; Codecs; Advanced Settings
Again, I prefer it this way, but if the others are ok with the subtabs I'm also ok:)

The audio and video panels would then look similar to the Security panel.
