I want videos played via omxplayer to display
elapsed-time:total-time on screen when paused, and then go back to just showing the video when playing.
I have "searched" until I'm blue in the fingers and cannot find anything definitive. I have managed to get the time display on-screen to "work" after fiddling with stuff in /boot, but I'm not sure if it was that, part of an "apt upgrade", or something else that restored the feature I've come to love.
I also cannot find any documentation on this anywhere. One thing I've noticed is that this feature seems to have vanished from ALL of my Raspberry Pi's omxplayers sometime around two years ago.
I found one reference to the on-screen time elapsed display in a function in the code on GitHub, but it wasn't well documented, and I'm not sure I can find even that again. I'd sure like to know how to turn on "display elapsed time and the total time of the video when paused" for omxplayer.
