    I just tried the latest SVN.

    The new OSD style seem to be a step back. The Blue OSD right in the middle of the screen really detracts from the Video or TV that I'm watching.



    For example, when I try to fast forward or rewind, I cannot tell whats going on behind the OSD...

    I like to have the old style back if possible.

    I'm also not so happy with the new OSD in the middle. Maybe some transparency of it or move the middle OSD to top right corner can be solutions :confused:

    Yep, exactly what I mean... I think users need to be able to see what's going on in the video when fast forwarding or rewinding, and the new OSD is really taking away from that... I guess Pause in the middle is fine, but still I prefer the old style.

    I see in the latest SVN 365 that the OSD background is made more transparent.

    This helped a little but I would still rather see the FF, RW, Pause, +15sec...etc info where the progress bar is instead of being in the middle of the screen. I think this would give the cleanest GUI.

    Also, when you press Up or Down to jump 10% or jump back 10%....the OSD is just a blue background in the middle (no words)...which is just awkward.

    This new osd (svn 378) is beautiful again. Like it much more than before.

    That new version of OSD is not final, is it? I mean, the text is just placed somewhere on that bar and does not have an own box as it used to before you tried that "in the middle of the screen" thingy. Please make it more fitting.
