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: https://build.opensuse.org/package/show … 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.

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

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!

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

It's good to have choices for the media collection you have :-)

MPV is getting to become my video player of choice too and vote to have MPV shipped by default on the Lithium (or later) ISO. Still the other popular players can be just an apt-get install away smile

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

I love mpv too, and use it most of the time, but I also have VLC which is also better in some situations, I find. For one, try dropping a DVD in your drive, and just playing whtever's on it, with the ability to choose sections, and skip forwrd and back. I find (on Debian Stretch, not Buster, agreed) VLC much better than smplayer for this. It also looks less annoying out of the box IMO.

So, while agreeing about the awesomeness of mpv, I'm less enthused about smplayer and kind of think there's a case for making VLC the default media player.

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

Agreed, VLC is pretty much bullet-proof. I'd still recommend leaving out vlc and using mpv for the CD ISO, though, if we aren't already.

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

^Yes, for the CD, sounds like a good idea. No smplayer either, just our BL wrapper round mpv. We're going to be tight getting under 700MB anyway, and probably CLI tweaking and fixup utilities should take precedence.
