    Since we no longer believe in UIs he had to write his post from the command line, so you'll have to forgive him for any typos.

    Never. But you can compile libmpv and build a GUI using the libmpv API.

    Why not, though? What's the reasoning?

    It's probably because MPV wants to remain obscure with no one using it :-P

    Because building a GUI that interfaces with a library through API calls makes more sense and is much more robust than a slave mode and scraping stdout (yes, mplayer GUIs scrape stdout).

    @RealNC: Slave mode is the obscure thing, while libraries providing client APIs is very common.

    Oh, that's really nice then. Shame CMplayer is the only GUI out there and it's a bit... bareboned. I'm hoping it becomes more complete in the future (like SMplayer or VLC)

    How can CMplayer use mpv if mpv doesn't have a slave mode or API to connect to?..
    I would love for mpv to work with SMPlayer some how..
