    I use smplayer with mplayer2 and set the forward/backward jump (right/left arrows) to 5 seconds. Is there a setting for this in mpv?

    Since mplayer2 hasn't been updated for a while, has anyone noticed if mpv uses less CPU resources when playing back various audio/video formats and containers?

    Thanks!

      seems like mpv has lots of problems playing smooth dvb. I'll at least be sticking to mplayer2 for such streams

        If any Gentoo users want to use my patched version of mplayer-1.2, I've started pushing my local ebuilds out onto github. I've been meaning to do this for ages! Expect many more ebuilds to appear as I sort out what I've been sitting on for far too long...

          I tried again mpv not very long ago and it wasn?t possible to change the audio and subtitles language, making it useless to me. It really needs a GUI.

            I've also been satisfied with mplayer over the years and saw no real reason to change mplayer2. Every few months I'll use their SVN to update my boxes and that's worked out pretty well all along.

              MPlayer and Mplayer2 are extremely buggy on Windows, its unusable. mpv is maybe an option if they Support DXVA.

                Just click on the subtitle or audio track button? on the OSD?

                  it has a small built-in GUI if it's compiled with LUA support that has buttons to change the language/subtitles. Alternatively, there are key combinations to do it (I think ctrl+J/K for subtitles, but I'm probably wrong... I use the GUI )

                    mpv-build

                    mpv-build is a cool idea. I'm on Debian and can't seem to install the -dev versions of the ffmpeg library packages without forcing an uninstall of several other packages I want to keep. So until I learned about mpv-build I've been unable to configure and build mpv.

                    My thanks to the mpv developers for recognizing and providing a solution to this kind of problem!

                      VLC

                      I am not looking into starting any sort of flamewar. I couldn't care less. But I'm curious. I have switched to VLC a long time ago. It seems more robust, more complete, and it plays well with tv-maxe. All codecs are built in, etc.

                      But there muse be a reason why many people prefer MPlayer, any thoughts? Thanks!
