I see, thanks for the clarification.

I went ahead and implemented it, in preparation for the next Rumai
release. This was a lacking feature of the display:client section of
my wmiirc's config.yaml file:

  # Mapping of clients to views they must appear on.
  # - <client props regular expression> : <tags to apply>
  # These mappings are processed in top-to-bottom order.
  # Processing stops after the first matching mapping is applied.
    /MPlayer|VLC/ : ~+!video

That makes MPlayer floating in current view and managed on the "video
wall" view.
