Where do you people even come from?
Are you my grandparents?
Is there a way to make mpv sort screenshots into folders based on filename of the video you're watching?
For example, doing this in the config doesn't work. It seems mpv by itself refuses to create folders.screenshot-template="~/mpv/%F/mpv_%F_[%wH.%wM.%wS,%wT]"
I'm sure it's possible via lua, but I don't know anything about lua.
Question: doesn't anime look bad with interpolation?
I remember turning off smooth motion when watching Studio Ghibli stuff, both the old ones, as well as that newer one with the world war planes.
It felt like a lot of things there were meant to be a slideshow.
For anything else I can barely live without smooth motion, interpolation, things like that.
So I'm trying to get hardware decoding working and am using:
but when I play something in mpv I just get the message:
>Using software decoding.
But no error indicating that vdpau failed to be detected etc, it just won't use hardware decoding despite the fact that vdpau exists and I can check using vdpauinfo.
I'm using Baka MPlayer and can't get Nnedi3 to work. Baka MPlayer seems to require that you word things slightly differently, but it should still do the same thing. Problem is that it's doing literally nothing. Am I just retarded? Will I just not get an answer because no one uses forks in these threads?"backend": "dxinterop",
mpv isn't a hard project to understand. It's only 100,000 lines of code, compared to MPC-HC's 300,000, VLC's 600,000 and FFmpeg's 1,000,000. It's really simple as far as software goes and it's actually feasible that a lone nerd could become familiar with the whole codebase and be reasonably certain that it doesn't do anything underhanded. mpv gets new contributors all the time, and the whole codebase changes pretty regularly, so it would be a pretty wide-reaching conspiracy if mpv did anything underhanded or made any sort of development decision that benefited Plex over mpv's users and no one sounded the alarm. I'd be more concerned about FFmpeg if I were you. It actually has multiple Plex employees as contributors and it's even had contributions from Google.
Again, OP. Please write clearly that those configurations are for Windows only, because a lot of newcomers might take it wrong and think those go for OS X and GNU/Linux as well.
Any way to make mpv play the next file in a directory like MPC can?
Sometimes I find I opened episode 8 instead of episode 9 because I didn't remember exactly what episode I left off at. It would be handy to just be able to hit a key to make mpv navigate to the next file in the directory instead of closing it and opening another instance. Also could be handy for binge watching if you can toggle the default behavior to play next file rather than close mpv at the end of a file.
This guy did a 32c3 lightning talk about this video barcode and it supports mpv
Its cool but Id still prefer the youtube style thumbnail hover.
on windows made a directory called
next to mpv.exe
inside of that folder
I recommend using Chocolately for installing and updating. Use the mpv.install option
on it's own takes care of framerate manipulation. If you want it to look smoother though you can add tscale=oversample on top of it
most people dont want to upscale their framerates because it looks like dogshit
Is nnedi3 not working for anyone else?Invalid value for option prescale: nnedi3
Valid values are:
Error parsing option prescale (option could not be parsed)
Option vo: Error while parsing opengl-hq parameter prescale (nnedi3)
Error parsing option vo (option could not be parsed)

my great aunt literally said this when we watched a movie that had a wide aspect ratio on her new 4k tv so there was slight letterboxing. your taste is that of an old woman who doesn't know shit.
Been using mpv out of the box for some weeks in my laptop and i love it.
I have a Nvidia GeForce 940 which is not that great, can it take the High configs or should i go with the basic configuration in the op?
Also, how do i force mpv to use the Nvidia card instead of the integrated intel chipset?
I'm on windows btw.
Thanks in advance.
>Nvidia GeForce 940
i fucked up
On my AMD system, mpv drops frames nonstop.
On my Nvidia system, mpv hardly drop frames.
>AMD driver quality
Playing some random DVD:
mpv: 10% CPU, 87 MB
MPC-HC + madvr: 7% CPU, 115 MB
I can't really see any difference in quality and the performance seems to be comparable.
madvr switch to fullscreen mode is painfully slow though so I prefer using mpv.

Nvidia is fucked up beyond my worst expectations and wouldn't let me to set the Graphics card for mpv in the control panel, or when i successfully set things up, the settings wouldn't be saved when i closed the control panel, so i renamed mpv.exe for something else (Cryisis.exe lel) and now it works and saves the configuration to use the card instead the integrated chip, you just have to set again your mkv files to the new pathway but i think that's it.
Man, fuck nvidia.
It's okay to use --hwdec=vaapi on Intel graphics, just not on Nvidia. If you don't want to worry about which hwdec is cool, you can use --hwdec=auto, which should pick vaapi on Intel Linux systems.
Why is it that it seems like I can't change the config with Baka MPlayer? It says you can do everything that MPV does, but nothing I change is actually changing anything. Am I just too dumb to figure this out?
Yeah, you should throw that bullshit in the fucking bin. Absolutely fucking disgusting.
>All of these scale-radiuses
>Interpolation without video-sync=display-resample since it's fucking commented out
>display-fps=60 now that video-sync is out
This is fucking ancient mixed together with something new. It's like having a collapsed Egyptian pyramid equipped with rocket boosters.
I'm using vo=opengl:scale=spline36:cscale=spline36:dscale=mitchell:scaler-resizes-only:dither-depth=auto:fbo-format=rgba16 on X201t, so you can probably do something a bit better.
no opengl-vhq o0
Look at this dumbfuck. A color profile nullifies all of those useless settings.

nice try anon
For scale I prefer spline36, I like it more than ewa_lanczos personally. cscale is for chroma upscaling, I can't see any difference with any scaler here. dscale for downscaling, can't say anything about it cuz I don't downscale, but default, mitchel, is very soft.
Is there a "--help" for understanding the commands and switches for the toolchain? Still can't get bs2b to compile into mpv.
where do you get the list of modules at?
No you are right but the devs allowed legacy support through ffmpeg. But the option needs to be enabled, idk if it is something with ffmpeg or, mpv. The syntax would look something like this.mpv --af=lavfi=[bs2b=profile=jmeier] video.mkv
Ah I've been wanting to do this for a long time but I'm shit at lua and mpv scripting in general.
So basically the idea is you want to make a script that will read the titles of the audio/subtitle tracks and then logically pick the subtitles based on the audio. For example, if you open a file and it plays english audio (based on your preferences in your config) you want the script to disable all subtitles.
You could even take it further and make some logic based config file for the script, which can do more than what mpv normally does. For example you let the script choose the default audio/subtitles based on its own logic, and not the defaults in mpv.conf.
Like I said I've been working on this but it's mostly trial and error with different mpv properties. And also I don't really know lua.
Depends on your computer, depends on your taste, depends on what you want.
The problem with the old one is that there was a damn lot of deprecated stuff, stuff that got reused, stuff that wasn't useful. It was long, dirty, incompatible. It was a Frankenstein's Monster of old and new.
While this is just an example, there's probably a million ways to get more placebo out of this. Like using some sort of script that interacts with xrandr on GNU/Linux to interpolate instead of using the built-in interpolation that mpv has. So here's one that has quite some placebo:
Feel free to paste your OSD, subs and screenshot settings from the old one. Also add whatever else you need. Many of the "other" settings works too. Don't forget, if you wonder what a setting does, it is extremely well documented here: https://mpv.io/manual/master/
If you're unsure on ANY setting I just posted, look it up and see if you want that. I've commented what most does in short terms, but to get a better understanding search it up in the manual and it'll automatically tell you all the details.
Again, this is just an example. Not "objectively the best" or anything like that.
Hey guys, a little while ago I made a little script to keep track of what I'm watching.
First time working with lua, and the code quality is pretty bad, but it's been working for me. (On linux.)
It puts a text file in the directory when mpv runs, with the series title, and then the episode number,along with how far in the MPV got.
Mostly just works with anime naming conventions, american series tend to include the episode name in the file name, which will make it not work as well.
Main reason I use it is so that if I come back to a series after a few days, I remember where I was, thought it might be useful.
