Option to change the title of file shown by OSC to file name? #4221

The OSC always shows the title of the video, but I want it to show the file name instead. I must always manually check the file name via right-clicking the title or SHIFT + I, but even then it only shows the file name briefly. I don't want the title of the video to be shown at all, because that means I need to properly tag the titles of all videos, whereas it's far more practical to name the file names to something more sensible.

I have searched everywhere in the documentation but haven't found such an option.

P.S. Setting seek 3 and seek -3 or whatever value only seems to work for a few videos--is this a bug? I never had this problem on VLC so I don't think it is file-dependent.

Uuuh ... I guess we could make the title toggle-able to switch between file-name and file-title and have a config option to set what is displayed initially, similarly to the timestamps.
