Works fine on OpenBSD, though i had to comment the
msgBus.getAlsaDevices() call in preferences.py,
alsa is linux-only... and hal is not an option ATM on OpenBSD.

When opening a window, it only shows the first image, then video
window is collapsed (comes back to audio-only mode ?),
i have to resize window to see the video playing.

It also failed to play a dvd : with the following warning :
GtkWarning: Unable to retrieve the file info for `dvd://'
but it might be related to a too old plugins-bad.

Thanks for it, once those little things are fixed i'll import it into OpenBSD.
