mplayer/mplayer2 osd help

I wanted to know if there was any way to modify mplayer's osd to show numbers(percentages) instead of bars when changing values such as volume, contrast etc. so that I can tell what the exact value I changed it to is.

Re: mplayer/mplayer2 osd help

I'm sorry, I don't know how to do that, but I did recently find out about a feature of mplayer that I had been looking for for a long long time: The "on screen display", by pressing the "o" key to cycle through the different views.

My two year old discovered it by banging on my keyboard. tongue

Anyway, I'm curious too about what you were asking.

You can adjust the brightness, higher the number the brighter:

mplayer -vf eq=10 file.avi

You can adjust contrast, higher the number the more contrast:

mplayer -vf eq=10:30 file.avi

You'll know where you are that way, you can use negative numbers, you can make an entry in your ~/mplayer/config to make it permanent. (vf=eq=10)

I don't know of a way to have a percent displayed instead of bars on the OSD.

I don't quite understand the whole setting the brightness/contrast thing you're telling me to do and it says that "eq" is obsolete.

Re: mplayer/mplayer2 osd help

What I gave you was correct for mplayer

Seems that mplayer2 man says that syntax has changed, look at it.
http://www.mplayer2.org/docs/mplayer/

 (--vf=eq or --vf=eq2)
eq[=brightness:contrast] (OBSOLETE)
......
eq2[=gamma:contrast:brightness:saturation:rg:gg:bg:weight]
......
hue[=hue:saturation]
