KNOWN ISSUE: MPlayerX now does NOT work well when enter/exit Fullscreen in EI Capitan by dragging the window in Mission Control. It is because that the Fullscreen behavior changed so much from 10.6 and 10.11. Now I am trying to figure out a way to fix it without breaking the backward-compatbility, but at worst, it could be possbile that MPX will drop 10.7 and 10.8 support from next release.
