SMPlayer media player 18.4.0 was released a few days ago with new feature to change the position of OSD bar.
Other than that, the time displayed by a tooltip when the mouse is over the seekbar is now much more accurate. And now it’s possible to turn off the use of the system native file dialog in Preferences -> Interface.
