It does a good job of playing just about any file format imaginable, but the performance leaves a lot to be desired. It's not as optimized as MX player and you can tell the video playback isn't very smooth. Also very bare bones with very few options or features. Personally I'd stick with MX player
No forward or backward buttons, No start over or resume option pop up and general other easy to use options like MXplayer has. Doesn't work in portrait mode. Feels like it's lacking on a lot of basic features will uninstall and check again in future, hopefully this open source project will become top media player. (Alpha version)
I love MPV on my Ubuntu and Windows as well. It's good here but I have a few suggestions. (1) enable autorotate toggle as in Video player All Format (2) the control/seeking shade seems to be way too much in the centre (3) the control/seeking shade doesn't disappear on tapping the screen and forces us to wait (enable tap to toggle visibility), (4) PIP support like VLC. Good luck! Would love to see it at the top of the charts
mpv on Android sounds like a dream. Great work devs! A better file/media browser would be really nice bonus.
PLAYS ANY/EVERYTHING!!! Simply the best player out there... Those complaining about the UI....it's not meant to be a front end player ..unless the user has command line experience. It was mainly a Linux app but so many Windows and Android users begged for a GUI, OSD and other features The developers have been trying to accommodate us non command line users (dummies). I had little to no command line experience and have learned quite a bit but still don't consider taking the time to figure it all out a very high priority in my life. So I use other user friendly front-end programs with mpv at the back. Try Smplayer, Gnome player or Baka ( among others) for a better GUI.
Very simple. Sometimes issues with certain file formats. Some more text/font options for subtitles would be nice.
- Fixed seeking in files larger than 2 gigabytes.
- Partially implemented specific parts of the MXPlayer intent API.
- Added more glyphs to the fall-back subtitle font.
- Fixed the pause button with audio-only files.
- Crash fixes, library updates.
