I don't know and probably not mpv, it works but there are far better options for Music

mpv works best as a backend for other music players. To treat library managers and music players as the same thing is setting yourself up for failure.

I use mpv and youtube-dl to watch youtube videos with hardware acceleration.
I can watch 1080p videos without my laptop fan turning on and saving over 50% CPU load.

Intel onboard can use vaapi. Nvidia can use vdpau. AMD can use either by using mesa.

Here is my config below.

/etc/mpv/mpv.conf
hwdec=vaapi
vo=vaapi
keep-open=yes

ytdl-format=bestvideo[height<=?1080][fps<=?60][vcodec!=?vp9]+bestaudio/best


I limited max resolution to 1080 because 4k is a little much for my laptop.

No. It was a summary of which cards use which video HW accelerator.

What's the best way to setup mpv so that it opens initially as a maximised window?

I'm on Windows and tried the script here https://github.com/kevinlekiller/mpv_scripts/tree/master/maximize but I can't seem to get it to work. Is there not a way to edit the .conf to achieve that? I can get it to open as a large window but I want it to fit properly on my desktop.
>>
>>64266232
add
fullscreen
to mpv.conf
>>
>>64266429
I meant so that the window of mpv fills the whole area above the taskbar, so a maximised window, rather than full screen, that's easy to do in .conf

>>64267873
At first I wanted to show the filename of every entry but it was a lot of noise and hard to get right, so I settled for just showing that of the selection.
The positionning of the text is not perfect, it could be improved if/when AMM decide to release his text bounding-box code. Or I could try to recreate it myself of course.
>>
>>64267248
For the delete function, it might be a better idea for it to behave like the way dired mode might, e.g. by marking the file (which could be delineated by a red outline) and then deleting marked files with another command (like "x," as in "execute"). Or you could even do it the way delete_file.lua does and refrain from deleting the file until *after* mpv closes.
>>
>>64268273
There is no "real" delete, it just removes the entry from the playlist. It'd be nice to show which files are about to be deleted by delete_file.lua but cross-script communication is a bit of a pain.
I'll consider the dired mode but I think I prefer something simple.
>>
>>64267248
Why does my osc reset it's style whenever I open a video from the gallery?
Is it normal for it to show the full path of the file instead of just the name of it?
I am windows 10
>>
>>64268525
What do yo mean by reset its style? I do disable the osc when the gallery is open, but I reactivate when it exits. Is this about the *layout* of the osc?
And whoops I didn't think of windows path, give me some time to cook up a fix.

>I'm guessing they improved the midi playback on an application that is supposed to play videos.
It's actually supposed to play media, not videos. That's why it's a media player, not a video player. But for once you're sort of right - they fixed MIDI playback, which was completely broken for a long time.
>Enjoy you bilinear scaling, data moshing and washed-out colors.
Excepting one known driver issue with a trivial fix, it doesn't have any of that. So I won't get to "enjoy" it.

This is more of a conceptual question than an mpv one.

If I am watching a video with 5.1 audio and I'm listening with headphones, is it considered "good practice" to append
--audio-channels=stereo
to the mpv command?

What I'm trying to ask is, if the source has 5.1 audio and I'm listening with stereo headphones, is it better to downmix to stereo or listen as-is?

downmix unless your headset has some meme surround sound thing, and if so neck yourself

I just updated to the latest shinchiro build and whenever I start playback this bar and the current time appears. The bar used to only appear when I used the arrow keys to seek, but now it appears when I pause/play shit. Is there a way to just hide the current time and leave the bar for when seeking? Basically just make it go back to the way it was before this update. I looked through the manual and only found a way to just hide everything with osd-level, but I only want to hide the current time that appears.

mplayer2 was never called mp2 though, like mplayer it was called mplayer2.

to elaborate, while VR (and 360 video, which goes in sort of the same vein) could be supported in mpv, no developer has shown significant interest in it so far and no outside contributor has stepped up to the plate. I think though that for VR in particular, maybe it would be better to create a specialised VR media player and use libmpv with the opengl-cb API to do a render-to-texture, so all the VR-specific rendering and input controls can be done in a proper way and not as some Lua+usershader hackjob

does anyone use streamlink twitch gui? Is there any way to make it so the lists of channels aren't impossible to see without having to hover over every single one individually? I have no idea why they made them so small and transparent.

Also, for some reason it will let you scroll a list of channels for a few pages but then after that you have to manually click each time to load another set of channels. Why not just scroll infinitely like the website?

Is there any way to create a subtitle file from the hardcoded subs on a video file?

To be clear, I have a video file that has hardcoded subtitles on it. I want to extract those subtitles so that I can use them with other video files. I have been unable to find equivalent subtitles on the internet.
Is there some tool that scans for subtitles and transcribes them, timestamps and all?

According to netflix HEVC is 20% smaller than VP9 for same quality.

AV1 is in bitfreeze and being finalized, it needs give or take 1-2 years to be fast enough for daily encoding.

VLC + MPC, plays pretty much any format perfectly. (but then I use KLite Codec pack to). Really though it's up to you, use whatever player you want. I still use good ol XVid/H.264 Codecs with AVI as container cause fuck it all just works and has broad compatibility.

Do you know how to install mpv scripts? If not, then youi need to copy the files in the repo to your mpv configuration folder.
In the end, it should look more or less like
mpv
├── lua-settings/
│ └── gallery.conf
├── scripts/
│ ├── gallery.lua
│ └── gallery-thumbgen.lua
├── input.conf
├── mpv.com
├── mpv.conf
└── mpv.exe
.
You will also need ffmpeg and ffprobe in your PATH for the thumbnail generation to work.
(windows users correct me if I'm wrong)
>>
>>64287295
Yeah I've got the script installation down. Just confused about the FFMPEG stuff. And I need FFPROBE too?
>>
>>64287334
Ok so simple solution is you download ffmpeg.exe and ffprobe.exe and put them in the same folder as mpv.exe, that should work.

Mh that's weird, what's your ffmpeg version? If it's old try updating it. Can you try running the same command without "-ss 0" ? then without "-map v:0", and finally without "-frames:v 1".
Tell me if any of these changes anything.

It was 3.3.3, I updated to 3.4.1, but got the same result.
Removing "-ss 0" got me this, and actually generated a file with 156KB

Mh okay, can you upload any of the file with which it doesn't work? I haven't had any problems using -ss 0 with jpg files but I guess that can happen.

Yeah, that should work. The fields are "mime type", "perceived type" "description" ".ext" ".ext" ...

I think mime type is used by IE or something? I don't think it's important, so you can probably leave it blank. Perceived type is used by some parts of Windows to tell what broad category of file types a file belongs to, so if you open a folder in Explorer that has mostly audio files, it will change the view to something more suitable for audio. Both those fields only matter if it's a file format that Windows doesn't already know about, so for common image types, it probably doesn't matter whether you have them blank or not.

Description is what shows up in the "Type" field in Explorer, so it should probably be set.

Something like this should be fine:
call :add_type "" "image" "PNG Image" ".png"
call :add_type "" "image" "JPEG Image" ".jpg" ".jpeg"
