MPV is definitely a player for Pros: HD lovers and Encoders. I mean those people use friggin' Command-Lines (good grief) :eek:

It's hard to find a decent guide about it. here's what I found:

(very recent, basic Shortcut guide, easy to peruse)

(The Official FAQ with all the command lines and the full shortcuts list and explanations)

(The same Manual as above but in PDF, 215 pages! Have Fun. ^^)

Edit: OK maybe this one is better: A Guide on how to install MPV for Anime viewing (full of useful links):

Thank you kindly, drew007! To be fair I'm not a pro at this, et there are a truckload of Front-Ends (aka GUI) for MPV: around 20 to choose from!

Anyways here's a great Front-End for MPV:



Kawaii-Player really can do it all. It can manage your media files, play YouTube, stream torrents,and even act as a media server for other devices on your network.

Notable features:
  • Kawaii Player has built-in support for YouTube. This feature allows users to get their favorite YouTube videos without having to deal with the website.
  • The program can act as a media streaming server. Users can access the media server on any PC on the network and play back content in their web browser.
  • The Kawai Player Media Server feature (along with being accessible on the web) can transmit content directly to another computer running the app.
  • The program supports streaming torrent files directly to the video player.
  • Aside from playing videos, Kawaii doubles as a minimalistic music player, complete with artist information.
  • Kawaii Player’s thumbnail grid browser feature is impressive. It scans video files and displays a snapshot of the content inside. It makes sorting through vast amounts of media files a breeze.
  • Can export playing videos to external players such as VLC, and even Kodi.
  • Kawaii Player’s live seek-bar preview feature displays quick snapshots of a playing video at the current highlighted time.

Source: (Windows too for Kawaii-Player but you need to install python 3.5+ ) ^^
Another one is Baka MPlayer, but it hasn't been updated in years:

Ok so I got mpv working with all the associations but still confused with how to change keybinds and duration of skips and like, I tried some things in input.conf but it didnt work. Also how to create playlists? Any help will be appreciated.

D*** ! You're hardcore! ^^ I had to look for it! 😅

A] PLAYLIST
It seems there're a few ways to make a Playlist:

1- by creatting a ".txt file" with the info you want to put together:

"create my_list.txt file with list of files
example:
video1.mp4
video2.mp4
video3.mp4

then run:
mpv --playlist=my_list.txt"


Source:

OR

2- by creating an .m3u file:

Also just in case ^^:

-

- how create an EDL File (rules for typing the commands lines you want to use):

B] CHANGE KEYBINDINGS

I almost forgot your 2d question^^, here's how to change the Keybindings for MPV:

Create input.conf file in the root folder of mpv (where mpv.exe is):

Thank you for the reply and I appreciate them but I got these thru some research before. The reason I asked was the keybind change wasn't working for me and maybe someone had similar experience or some insight. Thanks again ^^

So I got everything working and edited the input.conf and mpv.conf to my liking. I got some nice scripts from mpv's git page to manage and create playlists and other useful scripts ->

I hv been using mpv for a while now and I think am getting used to it too ^^
Definitely the best player I hv ever used.
Thanks for all the help @Spriggan ^^
