MPV is a cross platform player, probably the most advanced for functionality and processing capabilities. There are a lot of options to customize the video and audio quality, good quality video scalers. MPC-HC + LAV + madVR deliver yet a better visual quality, but MPV is no slouch either.
My only regret: when there is a video at display native resolution, MPV apply bilinear scaling when there should be no scaling at all.
