mpv is a video player and a fork of mplayer2 and MPlayer. It shares some features with the former projects while introducing many more. While mpv has no official GUI, it has a small controller that is triggered by mouse movement. mpv has an OpenGL based video output that is capable of many features loved by videophiles, such as video scaling with popular high quality algorithms, color management, frame timing, interpolation, and more.

All features


Streamlined CLI options

MPlayer's options parser was improved to behave more like other CLI programs, and many option names and semantics were reworked to make them more intuitive and memorable.

On Screen Controller

High quality video output

mpv has a OpenGL based video output that is capable of many features loved by videophiles, such as video scaling with popular high quality algorithms, color management, frame timing, interpolation, and more.

GPU video decoding

mpv leverages the FFmpeg hwaccel APIs to support VDPAU, VAAPI, DXVA2, VDA and VideoToolbox video decode acceleration.

Embeddable

A straightforward C API was designed from the ground up to make mpv usable as a library and facilitate easy integration into other applications.

Active development

mpv is under active development, focusing on code refactoring and cleanups as well as adding features.

Try mpc-qt as a GUI, It's almost exact duplicate of mpc-hc, except uses mpv as engine!

I'm really liking this media player. Once you learn the keyboard commands, you're all set. Simply drag your media file into the mpv window, sit back, and enjoy. Below are a few of the key controls I use frequently.

Volume Up = 0
Volume Down = 9
Full Screen = f
Exit Full Screen = ESC
Original Video Size = ALT+1
Double Video Size = ALT+2
Enable OSD = DEL
Disable OSD = DEL
Quit and Close mpv = q

All key controls are listed at the link below.

Definitely give mpv a try. It'll be even better when more Windows frontends are available for it.
