Summary: Video player based on MPlayer/mplayer2.
IP Space Migration ContinuesAll Funtoo user containers in the 8.28 IP space will be moving into our new IP space (172.97) over the next few days. If you have DNS set up -- be sure to watch your container and update to the new IP! container.host.funtoo.org DNS will be updated after the move.
Funtoo Hosting IP MoveFuntoo user containers with IPs in the 72.18.x.x range will be gradually migrating to new IP addresses this week. If you have DNS entries for your containers, please be aware that your DNS will need to be updated.
New ARM StagesNew ARM Stages, built with a new toolchain, are now hitting mirrors. Existing ARM users should re-install using these stages (dated Aug 3, 2015 or later,) rather than upgrade using emerge.
mpv is a fork of mplayer2, to learn more about the differences take a look at their docs. Currently there is only mpv version 0.6.1 availabe in Funtoo
# emerge media-video/mpv
mpv does not come with a graphical user interface (beside the video display). All settings are placed in a config file, a short example is provided below:
# Save the video position on quit save-position-on-quit # Use the vdpau driver for hardware decoding (for nvidia cards) hwdec=vdpau # Video output driver. A list can be displayed via: mpv -vo=help vo=opengl
The config file is completely optional, but mpv is highly customizable. It is suggested that you take a look at the man page:
# man mpv
You may create a separate file called input.conf for customizing the shortcuts for mpv. The example below binds the key "n" to skip to the next video in the current playlist and the key "p" to skip to the previous video:
n playlist_next p playlist_prev
The man page provides information about all possible bindings.
