Improve handling of video playlists
#1
Hi, today I used video playlists for the first time (music videos) and figured it behaves quite clunky. Two things I'd like to see changed but want to hear your opinions first:

a) show info OSD for a few sec
IMO it makes sense to also show the info OSD for videos when having a playlist with more than one icon. So like with music you should get the info of the new video pop up for some seconds. This makes sense for music videos but IMO also for regular video playlists.

b) don't force fullscreen playback
every video in the playlist will force fullscreen video which is bad. Let's say you have some music videos in your playlist, exit fullscreen mode and go browse for more music videos or do some other stuff in XBMC. Every time a new video begins you're switched back to fullscreen mode, have to exit it again and have ~3 mins to finish your stuff or you'll be forced to fullscreen once again. This is reaaally annoying.

Both changes shouldn't be hard to implement/fix and IMO won't have any drawbacks if only applied to playlists + not on first item.
