Summary: Video player based on MPlayer/mplayer2.
Perl UpdatesGentoo has bumped perl from 5.20 to 5.22. Be sure to run perl-cleaner --all after the upgrade.
ARM RebuildARM systems will use new stage3's that are not compatible with earlier versions.
ABI X86 64 and 32Funtoo Linux has new 32-bit compatibility libraries inherited from Gentoo. Learn about them here.
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.
