Agreed, would be great as a --d debug option.

Cool! How about making that a permanent setting/feature? I'd enjoy
knowing how the buffer is behaving.

Yep, it's super useful. I'll make it an option.

Dean, can you make it appear for streams, as well? (the debug version, that
is) Might give me some clues on the stream stuttering issue.

The option (available under Server Settings -> Additional Server
Settings -> Performance) will allow you to have all the hardware
players display the fullness of their hardware buffer in the place of
the progress indicator when displayed.

It's mostly useful for debugging performance issues (especially with
sync.)

Yes, but the progress bar doesn't display when playing a stream, so I can't
see what the hardware buffer fill level is when streaming Radio Paradise.

Ah, I see. Good point. I'll see that it will.
