Is there a way to automatically show the remaining time of a track instead of the complete duration in VLC? I added a second counter, inverted it to show the remaining time, but the next time I started VLC, it showed the length of the track again, so I would have to click it every time I start VLC. Is there an automatic way to do this?
I don't know if this is a new feature, but you can (now?) add the confusingly named element "Time", which is exactly what I wanted: The remaining and the total time together.
It can be found at Tools->Customize interface, where it can be added to the two lines of the main toolbar, to the time toolbar, the advanced widget and the fullscreen controls. I personally replaced the "Total/remaining time" element with it, but it can go anywhere.
