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.

Release 0.18.1
Note: Running mpv with different versions of the FFmpeg/Libav libraries than
it was compiled with is no longer supported. Even supposedly ABI-compatible
versions have been a source of trouble, and it creates far too much
complexity with little to no benefit, coupled with absurd and unusable FFmpeg
API artifacts.

Instead, mpv will exit with an error when such a situation is detected.
This simply means that mpv needs to be rebuilt whenever FFmpeg libraries change.

Notable Changes for 2015-08-27
mpv: build with libarchive support
See below. Might break a few things, please report if it causes problems. If necessary, I’ll disable it until these are fixed.

Replace OpenSSL with LibreSSL
Due to some difficulties with updating OpenSSL’s dependencies, libgcrypt and libgpg_error, I’ve switched to LibreSSL, which does not depend on these libs. This should not cause any problems, but please report any HTTPS/RTMPE breakage.

libass: check fontprovider constructors for failure
This should fix font selection (and the broken OSC) on Windows XP.

disable interpolation during framestepping
It just causes annoying artifacts.

Interestingly, this means keeping down the frame stepping key (".") will play video with interpolation disabled.

vo_opengl: force redraw when framestepping with interpolation
This might fix some problems when framestepping with interpolation enabled. The problem here is that we want to show the non-interpolated frame while paused. Framestepping is like unpausing the video for a frame, and then pausing again. This draws an interpolated frame, and redrawing on pausing is supposed to take care of this.

vo_opengl: add tscale-clamp option
This significantly reduces the amount of noticeable flashing when using tscale kernels with negative lobes, by cutting them off completely.

I'm not sure if this has any negative effects. It needs a bit of subjective testing over a period of time, so I just made it an option.

Fixes #2155.

player: add --playlist-pos option
Oddly often requested.

stream: libarchive wrapper for reading compressed archives
This works similar to the existing .rar support, but uses libarchive. libarchive supports a number of formats, including zip and (most of) rar.

Unfortunately, seeking does not work too well. Most libarchive readers do not support seeking, so it's emulated by skipping data until the target position. On backwards seek, the file is reopened. This works fine on a local machine (and if the file is not too large), but will perform not so well over network connection.

Note: This breaks multi-volume RAR support and does not work well if the archive contains file names that cannot be expressed in the local codepage. Yes, legacy codepage crap, because Windows is terrible and libarchive literally goes out of its way to convert everything, even UTF-8.

player: add display sync mode
If this mode is enabled, the player tries to strictly synchronize video to display refresh. It will adjust playback speed to match the display, so if you play 23.976 fps video on a 24 Hz screen, playback speed is increased by approximately 1/1000. Audio wll be resampled to keep up with playback.

This is different from the default sync mode, which will sync video to audio, with the consequence that video might skip or repeat a frame once in a while to make video keep up with audio.

This is still unpolished. There are some major problems as well; in particular, mkv VFR files won't work well. The reason is that Matroska is terrible and rounds timestamps to milliseconds. This makes it rather hard to guess the framerate of a section of video that is playing. We could probably fix this by just accepting jittery timestamps (instead of explicitly disabling the sync code in this case), but I'm not ready to accept such a solution yet.

Another issue is that we are extremely reliant on OS video and audio APIs working in an expected manner, which of course is not too often the case. Consequently, the new sync mode is a bit fragile.

ytdl: catch bogous extractor info
Some extractors may claim to have extracted subtitles, but then set the relevant fields to null. Try to catch those cases.

Notable Changes for 2015-08-03
build: remove enca, add uchardet
Since mpv supports uchardet now, enca has been removed from my build configuration. This is because enca does not actually support cross compilation (needs wine to achieve this, and even then it is broken due to iconv implementation differences between build host and target) and because enca’s detection algorithm almost never works right for many of our users.

The algorithm used by uchardet is the same as in web browsers like Firefox, so it should be fairly reliable.

The catch is that you have to enable uchardet manually for now (see below).

video: unbreak EOF with video-only files that have timestamp resets
Normally when there's a timestamp reset, we make audio resync to make sure audio and video line up (again). But in video-only mode, just setting audio to resyncing breaks EOF detection, because there's no code which would get audio_status out of this bogus state.

vo: fix inverted condition
When full_redraw is set, we always need to take the draw_image path. If it's not set, we can try VOCTRL_REDRAW_FRAME (and fallback to draw_image if that fails).

Fixes #2184.

vo: correctly account for dropped frames
If the framedrop count happens to be incremented with vo_increment_drop_count() during rendering, these increments were counted twice, because these events also set in->dropped_frame.

audio: fix --end handling (again) Commit c5818046 fixed one case of audio EOF handling, and caused a new one. This time, the ao_buffer doesn't actually contain everyting that should be played - because if --end is used, only a part of it is played. Of course this is stupid, and it will be changed later. For now, this smaller change fixes the bug.

Fixes #2189.

audio: remove af_dummy
Was used internally once; has no function anymore.

image_writer: don't use jpeg baseline, and remove useless jpeg options
The jpeg-optimize and jpeg-baseline options were undocumented, and they're also pretty useless. There's no reason to ever change them.

Also, don't write jpeg baseline images. This just makes compression worse for the sake of rather questionable compatibility with ancient decoders.

charset_conv: add uchardet support
For now, it needs to be explicitly selected. ENCA is still the default.

This assumes uchardet returns iconv names. This doesn't seem to be always the case, and the result are lots of iconv errors. So explicitly check for this situation, and print a warning if it occurs. It's entirely possible that uchardet support is actually useless, because names are not necessarily iconv-compatible (but uchardet doesn't seem to document whether it attempts to return iconv-compatible names if possible).

Notable Changes for 2015-07-30
libass: use DirectWrite for font selection
Rejoice! It’s the end of the fontconfig issues. Consequently, 64-bit builds are no longer compiled with fontconfig support and do not ship additional fonts anymore.

32-bit builds will continue to support fontconfig in order to maintain compatibility with very old versions of Windows, but will also pick DirectWrite if available.

add portable config mode
See manpage additions.

The main reason for adding this is that we can't guess whether the user wants his config in his Windows profile or not. The user basically has to tell mpv what should be done, and the "portable_config" directory does this implicitly.

Fixes #2042 (approximately).

build: use mozjpeg instead of libjpeg-turbo
This improves the quality/compression ratio of JPEG screenshots, so you can bump --screenshot-jpeg-quality without bloating the files too much.

vo_direct3d: create multithreaded IDirect3DDevice9
A user complains that it leads to the dxva driver failing, leading to messages like this:

[ffmpeg/video] h264: Failed to execute: 0x8007000e [ffmpeg/video] h264: hardware accelerator failed to decode picture

Reportedly, this happens only with vo_direct3d, not with vo_opengl. The only difference is that vo_direct3d attempts to share the D3D device with the decoder. Possibly the error is that the device in the VO is not created with D3DCREATE_MULTITHREADED. Change this.

Probably fixes #2178.

fix restoring volume
Was broken by 68bbab0e42e141896545f1f6e9699bcad2d685f8, which changed the number of fields to scan, but not the expected return value.

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.
