That won't be possible, as the OSD is overlaid onto the video that is 
sent to the video card for immediate display. You can't do that with

I think there might be some space, if the slider is put on either side 
of the song title/visualisation/etc... Maybe that display could be 
shifted to either side, to make a bit more space for the indicator... 
or, maybe better, have a "Volume: x%" bit somewhere in that title display.
