I stopped using totem a long time ago, using various mplayer frontends instead. Yesterday , though, i was positively surprised by the fact that totem could play certain video files mplayer failed to play.
So, the only thing keeping me from moving to totem full-time is its Huge control bar on the bottom. Is there any way to make it smaller, like gnome-mplayer's for example?
(an alternative player that is smaller than totem while using the same codecs - probably gstreamer? - would be nice as well)
