[PyQt] Embedding MPlayer in a QWidget // painting problems

I've been successful in embedding the MPlayer video player into a 
QWidget thanks to the PyMPlayer application 
(http://code.google.com/p/python-mplayer/). Resizing the QWidget resizes 
a movie just fine while the movie is playing, but once a movie is paused 
or stopped, no resizing of the displayed frame occurrs and even worse, 
if the window size is decreased so that it covers the movie, that area 
of the movie frame is erased. I'm wondering if someone could suggest 
what issues 'might' be involved here? Thanks for any ideas!

Best regards,
