    Out of curiosity, what do you do with 13,000 episodes? Do you have some kind of a in-home streaming setup with multiple devices? Just archives? Seeding?

    Was thinking about trying some streaming setup for media and was looking for some ideas mainly.

    Finally tried mpv, and I must say I'm impressed. Long overdue removal of dead features, much saner default configuration. Goodbye mplayer, goodbye mplayer2.

    I've spent almost a whole day with mpv, and I've got to say... I'm impressed, and it really is cross platform! I really like it's interface and keyboard shortcuts.

    Oh! And I played a [email protected] mkv (h264) and it was the only player that did not have trouble keeping in sync. All the other players would eventually be unable to drop enough frames.

    Currently I use mplayer2 with smplayer. Can't ask for more. Have VLC as a backup. Guess I will change if the mplayer guys keep up with their shenanigans.

    Still using mplayer2, even if it's dead. I really want to use MPV, but SMPlayer doesn't work with it. (CMPlayer is no substitute; it doesn't even come close to SMPlayer.)

    All I need is vp9 with hardware decoding with opus. Mmmm

    The maintainer uploaded version 3.1 a little while ago but for some reason it isn't available on 13.10 based distros yet... (But I see it in the list?)

    The only problem is that most media players do not support playing MKVs with Opus audio. I've reported the bugs to developers like VLC but it has gone 3 weeks without a fix. MPV, however, works perfectly. I would recommend using Ubuntu 14.04 and this PPA as it is built with ffmpeg compiled into mpv and thus bypasses the crappy libav in Ubuntu.

    Thanks! Hmm, maybe I'll go check mpv out then. I'm using Xubuntu 12.04.3 so I'd probably need to compile it. I hope it's easy. I'm not exactly a Linux expert. Probably not even an average Linux user either in terms of skill. Anyway, less CPU usage means longer battery life for my notebook!
