Mplayer's "title" in Pulseaudio

So, I've been playing a lot of youtube videos in mplayer recently (via. youtube-dl -g), and I've gotta say, I'm loving it -- mplayer's new HTTP seeking feature is awesome.

There's a slight cosmetic problem, however. When mplayer registers itself with pulseaudio, it provides a title for the process (by using the current filename or URL that it's playing). The youtube URL is so long that when I open the pulseaudio volume mixer, it stretches it 3 monitors wide:

This is obviously a glitch in the pulseaudio mixer, but it would be nice if mplayer used the window title (supplied with the -title option) instead of the URL (if the user provided it).

(My wrapper script puts the youtube video's title in the mplayer window title. You can see it here: )
