This tutorial will show how to simplify the seekbar (aka PAUSED dialog), i.e. the GUI you get when pausing and seeking. This is achieved by editing DialogSeekBar.xml. IMO you don't need all that info, you can use the Info screen I or OSD M for that. Also, knowing how much time's passed or how many chapters there are left can spoil the experience, as you with that info maybe can guess how it'll end.

1 Remove the small rectangle, the background and its contents

Open the file DialogSeekBar.xml. Find the following code and comment it out.

<control type="group">
	<visible>player.chaptercount + Window.IsVisible(FullScreenVideo)</visible>
	<left>705r</left>
	<top>-6</top>
	<include>VisibleFadeEffect</include>
		<control type="image">
			<left>0</left>
			<top>0</top>
			<width>150</width>
			<height>70</height>
			<colordiffuse>EEFFFFFF</colordiffuse>
			<texture border="12">OverlayDialogBackground.png</texture>

4 Create a new smaller rectangle and background

SeekmodmomentD.png

Find the following code:

<control type="group">
     <left>560r</left>
     <top>-6</top>

Paste the following code after it:

<control type="image">
     <left>210</left>
     <top>0</top>
     <width>140</width>
     <height>95</height>
     <colordiffuse>EEFFFFFF</colordiffuse>
     <texture border="12">OverlayDialogBackground.png</texture>
</control>


5 Move the button

Find the following code:

<left>260</left>
<top>10</top>
     <control type="image">
          <left>10</left>
          <top>0</top>
          <width>80</width>
          <height>50</height>
          <texture>OSDSeekFrame.png</texture>
     </control>

Change:
<left>260</left> to <left>231</left>
This will center the button in the rectangle.

If you want the text "Playing/Paused/Seeking Xs" aligned with the button, change:
<left>260</left> to <left>218</left>

     <top>7</top>
     <width>240</width>
     <height>20</height>
     <align>left</align>
     <aligny>center</aligny>
     <font>font10_title</font>
     <textcolor>blue</textcolor>
     <label>$VAR[SeekLabel]</label>
