VLC 2 vs. MPlayer OSX Extended

VLC 2 has been released for the Mac and it works wonderful. Up until now Mplayer OSX Extended was my preferred player considering as we still watch quite a bit of anime and the old VLC had a habit of choking on some of the more exotic formats used in the encoding of those. Plus Mplayer rendered the subtitles better.
Now it seems the other way around and I’m back on VLC.
I noticed the following oddity as well, in VLC the title is rendered perfectly but in Mplayer it’s cut off which I don’t quite understand as it’s animated and I assumed therefor hardcoded. Even weirder because the rest of the video renders the same in both players without cutoffs in either.

Work in progress... not home!
Trying to get all/most of the new code working before I start on the eyecandy.
