It should be possible to choose not to show the runtime on the controls, it's ugly and distracting.
Is there a way to do this already, or could it be considered?

Hi Mike,

Sorry for the delayed response. We believe showing the runtime is an important part of the viewing experience, and the player controls hide themselves during playback so I'm not sure I agree they are distracting. I can't say for sure, and I don't want to discount your suggestion, but I doubt we'd remove this.

Thanks for your reply Matt. I appreciate your comments, however I wasn't asking that you remove the runtime, only that there was an option to not show it.

Hi Mike,

I understand, but again all the player controls auto-hide after a moment, so I'm not sure I see the need. That, and we don't want to hide that kind of information from the viewer.
