Need Help With Games Containing FMV 

I am having a strange problem. Any game I run with FMV scenes will not maintain its picture size. whenever it switches from the main game to a cutscene while playing in full screen the picture switches from the normal size to just a tiny picture in the bottom left corner when using OpenGL. When I play without using OpenGL or any scaling at all and it changes from the game to a cutscene while in full screen it automatically switches from full screen to a small window. Is their a way to fix this, or is it a known problem that hasn't been fixed yet. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

I have no idea, but since there are many games that use FMV... could you be a bit more specific about which ones you mean?

The games I have containing FMV are the Phantasmagoria games and Beavis and butthead in virtual stupidity.

Please also indicate which ScummVM version you are using (the 1.9.0 release? a daily build?) and on which platform (Windows? Linux? Mac? Something else?). There were a lot of changes in the way resolution changes are handled between version 1.9.0 and 2.0.0 (that will be released soon, but a recent daily build would include those changes as well), so without knowing which version you are using it is difficult to know if this is an issue that might have been solved or introduced with all those changes.

This is a build from our buildbot?
If so you might want to try the win32 daily build from Kirben available on our download page. It uses a more recent version of the SDL library, and the old version from buildbot might be responsible for this issue.

Thank you for all your help. I downloaded the latest nightly build and it fixed the problem.
