The problem with big OSDs like the GNOME or OSX ones is that they can be 
annoying when they are displayed over a fullscreen video. For this 
reason I decided to make it not too big. This is I think the same reason 
why OSD on TVs are not that big.

You may also noticed it is positioned at the bottom, but not completely 
stuck on the bottom edge. This is intentional too: it makes it possible 
to read subtitles even when the OSD is visible.
