MPlayer "control panel" is moved outside the screen

I have this annoying little problem. I somehow managed to move MPlayer "control panel" window (the one with all the buttons) outside of the screen.
Well at least I think it's outside the screen. And now I can't get it back. I tried to change the resolution, but nothing.

Is there some way to get it back?

I'm using Fedora Core 2 with KDE and the MPlayer is the latest version

ok first off, mplayer doesn't have ANY control panel

now that thats cleared up, close whatever program create that panel (open a console and type "killall (name of program that the panel belongs to)"

or you can just press "esc" and hope the panel gets the message and exits

also: there are ways to move windows around.. but that requires another program (a simple one at that), tho i have no clue of any apps that will reposition all windows outside the veiwing area .. but it is possible
