yes, it can be done!
(i already looked at it, but i was in trouble finding the way, but i
noticed that even with fixed-vo, the size of the window it's updated,
so i did the same for the title part, see:
i added thiese lines into vo_x11_update_geometry (x11_common.c)
XStoreName(mDisplay, vo_window, vo_wintitle);
just before the return. in this way it works! good :)
i'll apply tomorrow, ok?

i don't like it, not very much readable, imho :(

anyway i don't like to extend the title over the filename.
suppose you're looking at "The new very serial episodes reallly
and this with a little resolution.
you'll see seomthing like
"Mplayer - T...Ep.02.avi"
which tells you nothing about the clip, or
"The new very ...vi - Mplayer"
which again doesn't tell you nothing about the episode youre looking at.
i thing it's easy to vanify the information by appending
MPlayer-or-something-else to the title.
hey, the default behaviour will be yet to title only MPlayer, so if you
change it, you already know you're using MPlayer....
(sorry for mail's length)
bye and thanx again
