MPlayer: OSD Time

To show elapsed time and/or total time in mplayer video during playback, use the following option…

Edit ~/.mplayer/config file and insert

# OSD time
osdlevel=VALUE

where VALUE can be:

  • 0 = subtitles only
  • 1 = volume + seek (default)
  • 2 = volume + seek + timer + percentage
  • 3 = volume + seek + timer + percentage + total time

For single usage, mplayer can be run using the following parameter:

mplayer -osdlevel VALUE FILENAME

During playback, pressing the "o" or "O" key induces the same options repeatedly.
