Description of problem:
Would be nice to have a on screen display similar to mplayer
Some references from man page of mplayer:
MPlayer has an onscreen display (OSD) for status information, nice big
antialiased shaded subtitles and visual feedback for keyboard controls.
Toggle OSD states: none / seek / seek + timer / seek +
timer + total time.
I - shows filename on the OSD
P - Show progression bar, elapsed time and total duration on the OSD.
IMHO feature requests should be brought up to the upstream developers but not the package maintainers.
Upstream does not have a bug reporting tool; communication for everything happens via email. It won't be a bad idea to keep this open so that we can track when this feature goes in.
And my fault is that I forgot to send this upstream; I have emailed him now.
