Re: BL-Media Proposal: Sub smplayer/mpv for vlc

I always use mpv, and I used to use smplayer but now I find it unnecessary for my use-case. I have never been a fan of VLC!

I vote for mpv/smplayer instead of VLC wink

Re: BL-Media Proposal: Sub smplayer/mpv for vlc

SMPlayer's Qt and icon themes can also be changed from within its own options instead of following the system's, if that's your preference.

If you don't want to backport a system ffmpeg 4.1 to build the current mpv 0.29.1, you can have it build and use an internal version instead, like I did here: … th-support

Note that my version also has vapoursynth support so that it works with the Smooth Video Project 4 Linux, which is pretty cool, but Debian doesn't have vapoursynth. However, that can be disabled in the build configuration.

mpv for the win

It's really fantastic, very well documented and quite minimal. It's one of the first software I install in a system if it's not already in it.

Thx !

Re: BL-Media Proposal: Sub smplayer/mpv for vlc

I also want to add my voice to mpv which is superior player for all my video collections.
The only one I miss a bit is DVD MENU from 0.6.2-2 However, DVD's are not much priority, since 720p / 1080p or higher are more enjoyable nowdays.

"mpv.conf+mpv.input" two settings where they help me to adjust everything according to my preferences or hardware opportunities.
I haven't turned back into any other video player for several years on Linux.

MPV all the way!
