Question:

How do I move / resize videowindow type control?

I have a control  defined in an XML as follows:


        <control type="videowindow" id="300">
            <description>video window</description>
            <posx>640</posx>
            <posy>0</posy>
            <width>1280</width>
            <height>540</height>
            <visible>True</visible>
        </control>

I can interact with it via the xbmc.Player() class, but I can't seem to alter the control directly.  

example:  the following fails with - RuntimeError: Unknown control type for python

self.vidPlayer  = self.getControl(300)

How do i alter a videowindow type control created via XML? (change size and position)

BONUS:   

Is there anyway to set the stretch type for a windowed video window programatically?  e.g. set it to stretch_16x9 as part of sending a xbmc.Player().play() command (or just before /after)?

Thanks
