Is there some reason that your "real size" is computable only in the
size request signal?

The simple thing to do would be something like:

 gtk_window_set_geometry_hints (window,
                                video_canvas, /* geometry_widget */,
                                NULL, 0); /* hints/mask */
 gtk_window_resize_to_geometry (window, 480, 320);

Then code in GtkWindow will take care of figuring out what that means
for the size of your toplevel.

[ I'm not 100% sure how this will interact with the GtkPaned usage
  in Totem without more thought and looking at the GtkPaned code. ]
