How to get rid of title bar of a quicktime window?

The main problem:
I want to display the title info etc about each track as they play in iTunes. How can I do that on an otherwise black screen (desktop) (I don't want to use the visualizer with its psychedelic patterns).
Background:
I want to play music from iTunes (many pieces in a row - for like a full day). While this is happening I want the title etc of the tune to be displayed on the screen, like white smallish text against a black background in the lower right hand corner. At the same time I want slides to be displayed on the screen.
So, with iPhoto I can run a slide show but only while one piece of music is playing.
Instead I can have the desktop slowly change (from system preferences) with images from a folder every 5 seconds. That's not too bad. Looks good, actually, except for that annoying menu bar at the top! Well, black tape can hide that one (or a second display and move it over there). Now iTunes can play away all day.
As to how to get the title etc of the song playing displayed I was thinking about somehow extracting it from iTunes with applescript, then paste it into the text track of a quicktime movie, and display that little movie in a small window. I have figured out how to get rid of the controller from the window. But, I can not figure out how to get the title bar of the quicktime window to go away - that is I want a window with nothing around it, neither controllers nor title bar nor anything. How do I create such a window. Any good ideas out there?
Or is there a totally different way of obtaining the same effect?
Thanks.

Hi,
You could try posting at the QuickTime discussion area. There might be an iTunes visualizer that allows you to make a slideshow with track info. It has been a while since I tried making a SMIL file, but I think you could do what you want with that. Not sure how you create a streaming text of track information. I would have to do some reviewing.
gl,

  • How do I get rid of title bar?

    When I installed Firefox on my new Windows 8 computer, I got a style in which there is no title bar. The tabs are up there with an orange Firefox button at the left. It provides access to the menu items. I like that. However, I wanted the function of my profile on a Windows 7 machine. (Lots of stuff in there.) When I installed that, it put me back in a situation where there is a title bar unnecessarily wasting some vertical screen space. In that Windows 7 profile, I was using the Tiny Menu addon to compress the menu items onto a single button. It is on a line with the Location bar and the search bar. The tabs are below. I cannot figure out what to tweak in the profile from my Windows 7 to get to the appearance I like in the Windows 8 install.
    I tried the advice here: http://www.squidoo.com/hide-firefox-title-bar
    I don't see any Tabs on Top setting, and browser.tabs.drawInTitlebar is already set to true. When I disable the Menu toolbar, the title bar goes away and the tabs are up there with the orange Firefox button; however, I lose the Location bar and the search bar altogether.
    There's got to be a way to fix this. Any help would be appreciated.

    Something very weird is going on. I achieved a brief success as follows:
    Not sure exactly what did it. With Task Bar Plus, Stylish, All-in-One Sidebar, and the bookmarks toolbar disabled, I did do that reset to defaults for the toolbar. I had skipped that earlier because I did not see how it was going to affect the tab bar and my toolbar configuration (with All-in-one Side Bar) is fairly complicated. However, I was getting desperate. It still did not solve the problem directly. However, when I enabled the Navigation Bar, success! The odd thing is that I had fiddled with enabling the Navigation bar on multiple previous occasions with no luck; so I am still not sure exactly what happened. I thought the problem was solved. But it was not:
    Then I started experimenting to figure out what had been causing it. I enabled all those things (except the bookmarks bar). It stopped working. I disabled Tab Mix Plus, and I got a brief success at the first instant when I enabled the Navigation bar. Then I restarted Firefox, and it did not work then or after any subsequent restart. I have gone so far as to restart in safe mode with all addons disabled. It still does not work right. I go back to the profile from the Windows 8 install, and all is well again.
    What is going on? I may have to give up and further develop the profile from Windows 8 to come closer to the function I had in Windows 7; but I dread that process.

    I have been using the magic mouse with lion on my iMac since I got it. Today I got a new mouse, a logitech M510. After using the mouse I noticed that the scroll bars came back permanently. I actually liked having the scroll bars dissapear when not using them, it made everything look much cleaner. How would I go about getting rid of them? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

  • How to get rid of blue bar at top when tethering?

    I would like to get rid of the blue bar at the top og my Iphone 4 when it is tethering its internet connection. What is interesting is my girlfriends iphone does not show this blue bar when tethering. Instead it shows a small icon in the top left next to the signal indicator. Could this be a carrier tweak. We both use AIS in Bangkok Thailand but her phone was originally bought from True mobile and mine was bought in China at an Apple store. Of course it is not a fake Iphone for any of you skeptics. I checked the serial with Apple in canada and it is real. I even had it in for free warranty repair one time in Bangkok.  Any help would be appreciated. I don't like this blue bar and want mine to appear like hers. It cuts the screen shorter and limits my use of the phone while tethering.

  • How to get rid of username lists in the Gmail window. I access Gmail with Firefox.

    It is a small but annoying problem. I, and sometimes friends, use my Gmail account to check their email. In the username window of Gmail, which I access with Firefox 3.6.9, a list of all past users shows up when I click in the window. I cleared Google cookies, and All history, but the list remains! I can hide the list, but not clear it, if I check 'Form and search history'. But the list is alive and well when I uncheck this option! Is there a way to get rid of the list?

  • How to get rid of finder bar in secondary display on Mavericks

    I'm use the secondary display but I don't want the finder bar to be shown how do I delete that option?

    Ah - thank you very much for reminding me about that!
    I'd seen that option a couple of days back but hadn't pursued it because I didn't want to do the logout/login required to activate the change at that time.  Since then I've been putting up with the secondary menu bar and - more significantly - apps which used to exclusively open/live on the secondary display defaulting to the primary display.  That was really beginning to bug me and has also been solved by this change so, thanks again for the reminder.

  • How to get rid of scroll bars on an edge animation in a fluid grid page

    I'm playing with a page that will contain an edge animation (basically just a panorama view sliding across the stage from right to left).  My thought was that when the page was displayed on a tablet or phone the user would just see less and less of the animation--i.e., as if the panorama was sliding across a smaller stage.  In my css I've specified overflow: hidden for the div that contains the animation, and in the animation itself I've specified overflow: hidden for the stage.   This works fine in Live view, but when I preview the page in a browser (chrome, safari, IE) I get scroll bars.  The animation also behaves as I want it to when I preview it in a browser by itself--i.e., not as a part of a fluid grid page.  I could live with a horizontal scroll bar, and there might even be an argument in its favor, but the vertical bar is a definite problem.  I've tried refining my css to overflow-y : hidden, but that doesn't have any effect either
    Any help would be great.
    Thanks,
    Peter

    I found an work around, albeit an inelegant one, so the link I posted to Nancy's reply now works.  What I found is that the edge animation produces an html document with a body style.  If I plug my overflow style there, voila, alls good.  Of course it will be overwritten if I regenerate the animation, but at least it's progress.

  • How to get rid of extra bar that comes with new update?

    I am a huge Mozilla fan and have used FireFox for many years now. The new update messed up the way I had my browser but I found an addon that let me move things where I wanted them once again. There is one thing I have been unable to fix though - the empty bar underneath the tabs that stretches horizontally for the entire screen. I have unchecked the bookmarks toolbar, addon toolbar and additional toolbar, but whatever bar this is it won't go away.
    I completely understand the need for the UI redesign and am not complaining.
    I uploaded a picture here.
    http://imgur.com/h0f9NRE
    As you can see, I like the minimalistic look and this bar is trampling upon that look. Once again I'm not complaining about the new UI, but will this bar be removable in a future update?

    That's not an extra bar; it's the navigation toolbar that's always been there.

  • How to get rid of scroll bars in sub panels when displaying a VI which is part of a class?

    I am writing an application that applies different analyses to a set of data. The program must be flexible configurable. To not clutter the GUI with too much elements I ended up with the idea to load the needed user interfaces for each specific analysis dynamically into a single sub panel when needed. This works well without any problem.
    Due to the fact that all analyses share some common functionality I have decided to use LabVIEW classes for implementation. Each class has one VI representing the user interface to show in the sub panel.
    This works also well BUT the sub panel always shows a horizontal and vertical scroll bar I don't want to see!
    I have already learned that I need to change the user interface VI to a custom "Window Appearance" and disable the "Show scroll bar" properties. But this seems to work only for "normal" VIs but not for VIs that are part of a class.
    Any ideas?
    Ingo
    Solved!
    Go to Solution.

    Thanks Pixar, this was the right tip!
    Although: there seems to be a difference between "normal" VIs and VIs that are members of a class.
    For "normal" VIs it is sufficient to set the property to "Off While Running" and it works as expected.
    VIs part of a class need the "Always Off" setting" which is only accessible via right click on the scroll bars but not via the VI's properties box.
    Thanks and Regards

  • How to get rid of black bars on top, bottom and sides??

    I am exporting a project from Adobe Premiere Pro (CS3) that is in HD (widescreen) format. The original video is HD, the size option I chose for the project is HD, everything is showing fine when I look at it in the Program window. I admit I am a bit of a novice Premiere user, so I do need a little help with the exporting as there are a ton of options. This is what is happening: When I export, whether to AVI or Quicktime my project comes out with black bars all the way around. Not like letterboxing on top and bottom as when you have a widescreen video exported to a standard 4:3 size, but almost like a 16:9 video, shrunken down a little with a 16:9 black box put around it. What the heck am I doing wrong. I'm sure it has something to do with some option on exporting, but I've tried messing around with the export options about 20 different ways. I'm desperate! Please help!
    Thanks in advance!

    I have several video clips from iStockPhoto. I don't know what camera's/settings were used, but know that they are all 640x360 px and vary between 25 fps and 30 fps. I also have 3 still images that I have insterted that I formatted to be 640x360 to keep everything the same size. Everything appears correct when viewing the project as I've built it. I'm attaching a few screen shots of the most recent settings for export, though these are not the only that I have tried. Everything comes out with the same result.
    I can't insert screen shots of my settings for some reason (?) but here is some info on my most recent try. I chose to export as a Microsoft DV AVI. Then in the Video options I'm using the DV NTSC codec. For size, I chose the D1/NTSC Widescreen 16:9 (1.2) option.
    As for other times I've tried this, there are only 2 other codecs to choose from when saving as a DV AVI. I've tried both of them too. Everything has had the same result. I've tried a Quicktime file as well.
    Does anyone have a suggestion as to the best file/codec/setting combination?
    Thanks,

    You can reduce the size to normal, which is about 1GB, by restoring the phone.
    Backing Up, updating, and restoring your iPhone and iPod touch software
    The size of this part can increase when something goes wrong during a sync, or some files can't be read anymore by iTunes.
