There is also a vlc preference setting to control video sizing. So, if 
you have the window not maximized, the window will be seen to adjust 
"automatically" to the video size. This can be changed in 
tools->preferneces->interface->"Resize Interface to video size". I 
believe the default for this sitting is "checked".
