Please add the name of the playing file to the "Status Bar" (too) ! (or move it from the "Caption bar ?")

Cause it makes more sens to have that kind of info in the "Status Bar" than in the "Caption bar", and also many of us don't use "Caption bar" but we still want to have that info present in the same place with the other info where it belongs, in the "Status Bar"

It's standard to show what file is open in the caption and this is the message that's shown in the taskbar. The status bar is for status messages, the filename is not a status, so I'm not sure how you figured that's where it "belongs".

First it seems that you fail to notice the "too" from my post and second just open a browser and navigate you'll see in the STATUS BAR messages like : "transferring data from..." "waiting..." ... and the name of the page which is the equivalent of the "Playing & Name of the file" in MPC-HC's case
So "Playing & Name of the file" it belongs in the Status Bar (too)

Sure, some browsers show it in the statusbar temporarily. But they show it continually is where it belongs: The Tab (or window chrome if tabs aren't used).

The "temporarily" you've mention it takes as long as "the action is taking place" which in the case of mpc-hc will be as long it's playing or pausing ...
It seems I haven't be clear enough so taking the browser examples from above (name of the page in the Caption Bar and the action in the Status Bar = "transferring data from & name of the page" or "waiting for & the name of the page"; caption bar should show the name of the open file and the status bar should show the action ( which now it's incomplete since the name of the file is missing) "Playing (DXVA)"/ "Pause" & the name of the file

To summarize the current message from the Status Bar ("Playing (DXVA)"/ "Pause) it's incomplete since it's missing the name of the file (as you can also see from the browsers examples)! hence the "more info" from the title of this ticket
