    Pretty easy.
    If you want to change the default Totem (Movie Player) then just go in a terminal
    Code:
    alacarte
    Highlight Sound & Video, on the r. side right click on Movie Player -> properties and change the command to
    Code:
    totem --toggle-controls %U
    If you want to leave the default Movie Player alone and create a 2nd 'instance', then

    Code:
    cp /usr/share/applications/totem.desktop ~/.local/share/applications/totem-noshow.desktop
    Code:
    gedit ~/.local/share/applications/totem-noshow.desktop
    When the file opens change the line Exec=totem %U to the above one.
    Edit the line Name=Movie Player to whatever name you wish, then save.

    The 2nd 'totem' will show up in your Applications menu with name you picked and run without controls

    Ex. (name it whatever you wish

    [Desktop Entry]
    Name=Movie Player 1
    Comment=Play movies and songs
    Exec=totem --toggle-controls %U
    Icon=totem
    Terminal=false
    Type=Application
    Categories=GTK;GNOME;AudioVideo;Player;Video;
    .......
    .......clipped
