VLC - anyway to remove title bar when playing in Windowed mode

Hi there
In Linux you can remove the Window title bar when playing VLC via a cmd line command.

Is there any option to remove the window title when playing in Windows 7 / 8 -- I just want a windowed borderless re-sizeable window at times when I'm not in full screen mode.

Windowed mode is very good if you want to watch while doing other things at the same time --or for watching some very old TV shows where the resolution wasn't that great so watching in a smaller window is fine.

For example a screenshot from "The secrets of Isis" TV show around 1975.

Google doesn't seem to be any help this time on this.

WinDVD allows this but I'm NOT PAYING for a version any more -- don't have physical DVD devices so I can't get the "Freebies" that come sometimes when you buy a DVD device.


You can Partially do it by disabling the Window decorations in ==>preferences==>video and disabling Integrate Video in Interface in Preferences==>interface but this leaves a fixed screen at the top left that you can't move or re-size.

scr 2.

Cheers
jimbo
