instead of a timer to trim the buffer, you can make the process filter
recognize certain output (using a regular expression) and modify the
buffer explicitly.  i see the current filter is rather minimalistic:

  (defun mp3player-play-filter (proc string) nil)

i'm assuming that it is the subprocess that is producing the time,
rather than the elisp code.
