    That removes the control bar along the bottom of the video, you know... play | pause | stop | progress bar | full screen. What I'm talking about is the time being displayed over the top of the video in the upper section of the screen. Not to be a complainalotamous, but it's huge, hides most of the video and on top of that (no pun intended), it's got a nasty looking font.

    mplayerplug-in configuration

    i was bemoaning the same issue: how to get rid of that darn time-elapsed display.

    i'm assuming that jeremy's figured it out (since these posts are 2 months old), but since this page is one of the first hits that come up on google when searching on the issue, i thought i'd provide the solution that i'd just discovered, courtesy of "gabe a" in a helix community forum:

    also you can get rid of the time left/time elapsed display by editing
    /etc/mplayerplug-in.conf and commenting out the "osd-level" line...
    hopefully that osd-level line wasn't very important! ah well it works, and such is the linux way.

    Thanks, Ben. I actually hadn't figured this out. But I'll give it a try!
