Description

Mplayer doesnt work well with many window managers because of poor ICCCM
compliance. And other window managers added dirty hacks to make it work.
Please review the compliance here:

http://www.tronche.com/gui/x/icccm/

Many would agree mplayer should comply to ICCCM and it would make it work far
better than it does now when run under X.

Just a remark, with MPlayer 1.0pre5, support for EWMH was added.

Is there anywhere that someone has listed what issues remain with MPlayer's
non-compliance? It would be very helpful for someone who wishes to help.

Is this still valid? Otherwise close it as fixed.

No idea if this is fixed. It sure works well enough for me.
