I mean when displaying video in a window, not fullscreen. Of course you would want the bars in fullscreen mode, or if maximized. I don't see any useful reason to have them when resizing the window. MPlayer gets this right; in fact it gets a lot of things right that ffplay gets wrong. Unfortunately, it leaks memory.
