I have it just because it looks cool and took at most a minute to do.
And a gradient template I use for reflections.
1. Create your custom logo with no reflection.
2. Select a rectangle around the bars in your custom logo. Match the bottom of your selection as close as possible to the bottom of the bars.
3. Copy and paste as a new layer.
4. Flip the layer vertically and move it into position as a reflection. Currently it will block the MPC text.
5. Paste the attached gradient template above the reflection layer, and merge it.
6. Change the merged gradient+reflection layer to "Lighten Only" mode. The MPC text should become visible.
7. Adjust the layer's opacity to 40%.
I do good?
That is what I meant, but I figured it out, no worries bro.
This has been my current on for a long while now. Maybe it's time for a change though.
You know that you could you cut it from the screenshot? MPH-HC doesn't rescale it.

He's gonna say MPV, which is requires you to pretty much build the player yoursef. But he's not going to tell you how, and there are no helpful guides anywhere on the internet. Just stick to MPC.
If he was going to say MPV, I would have just said that I need better playlist management than MPV currently offers. Besides, with the recent smplayer thing, you really don't have to build mpv from scratch as much.
>He's gonna say MPV, which is requires you to pretty much build the player yoursef. But he's not going to tell you how, and there are no helpful guides anywhere on the internet.
This. This right here drives me fucking crazy. What the fuck is wrong with people on this website and their artificially inflated sense of elitism?
I tried installing MPV once, and I even did the research to figure out how to operate it. The base GUI is missing many basic features, such as framestep. There's a long PDF file with command line functions, and there are actually people in the world who memorize those. So, instead of just clicking a single button to do something, you have to type in a long, cryptic string of code. No fucking thank you.
I could understand if it was something that made a huge difference, but it's a fucking media player. As long as you're not using vlc, just about everything else is just bells and whistles. Not worth the effort in the slightest unless you read code like it's a coloring book.
>wanting to click on a GUI for framestep
Are all Windows users this stupid?
You're right; I phrased that poorly, partly due to my poor memory of a media player that I long ago dismissed as "not good". The fact that framestep is not in the player GUI is merely the icing on the cake. The more abhorrent aspect of this media player is the fact that there is no GUI for an options menu, help menu, or any kind of user configuration. Instead, it comes pre-configured to a set of hotkeys that most users will probably never remember and need to keep referring to the PDF to figure out, since they are obstinately different from the default hotkeys of more popular players, such as MPC-HC. The fact that you need to use a command line string of code to set all your hotkeys is the real deal-breaker here.
>play a video file in Notepad.
For the record, mpv can do this.
>or any kind of user configuration
It has text configuration. A lot of programs are like this (Windows users might be familiar with the mednafen and mupen64plus emulators.) If you can't use a program without a GUI, you really do need to "git gud." Not every program you encounter will handhold you through everything with shiny buttons and controls.
>Instead, it comes pre-configured to a set of hotkeys that most users will probably never remember and need to keep referring to the PDF to figure out, since they are obstinately different from the default hotkeys of more popular players, such as MPC-HC.
Change them then?
>The fact that you need to use a command line string of code to set all your hotkeys is the real deal-breaker here.
You can't set hotkeys on the command line. You have to use the configuration files for this. It's really not hard to do.
Sometimes these things are worth learning, but all those people see is you telling them to use something less convenient for little to no gain.
Honestly, I wouldn't tell an artfag to use linux. Nor would I recommend it to some guy that just wants to play games.
And if you're telling them that they shouldn't be using them, then you've definitely lost them.
>And if you're telling them that they shouldn't be using them, then you've definitely lost them.
Not really interested. It's not mpv's goal to pick up a wide userbase. It already has a niche that it fits perfectly. If those users want the benefit of mpv's high quality video renderer, they will have it some day when someone writes a good mpv GUI, but I will still be using the command-line version.
Are you saying people only use mpv to be elitist? As a Windows user, one of the reasons that I use mpv is because I prefer command line software and text-based configuration, but for Linux and OS X users, it's literally the only good video player on their platform. The biggest problem with MPC-HC is that it's not cross-platform, and it's a very real problem for people who didn't choose their operating system based on what would be best for watching anime.
>The biggest problem with MPC-HC is that it's not cross-platform, and it's a very real problem for people who didn't choose their operating system based on what would be best for watching anime.
I use MPC-HC under windows on my mrimary machine because it is mainly for gaming, and XBMC on the linux machines I actually watch anime on, which at the moment is zero since I don't have a HTPC set up. And for the record I set my anime to torrent and rename in a standard format automatically for use with said HTPC.
I'm not saying people only use it for elitism. You like using text interfaces. That's not elitism. I don't. Calling me a faggot because I don't want to use text interfaces is elitism.
except that you only need to press "," and "."
Do you have a brain to comprehend a motherfucking manual?
I doubt you even read your so called "hotkey" section
Why should I have to memorize new hotkeys when I already use "bkspace" and "del" for my back and forward framesteps in MPC-HC? What advantage does MPV offer that will off-set this cost?
>Calling me a faggot because I don't want to use text interfaces is elitism.
Agreed. I understand that some people prefer GUI software, and that's okay. Being elitist about text-based software is being elitist, but I don't think I've done that. It's not elitist to defend my use of mpv or other text-based software by correcting posts like this >>123601548, which say that a lack of GUI configuration means there's a lack of configuration.
Also, I don't understand why people exaggerate the difficulty of using text-based software. Reading a manual and copying a few lines into a text file is not hard. It's not elitism to call someone an idiot if they say they can't do these things.
>which say that a lack of GUI configuration means there's a lack of configuration.
If it's impossible for the average user to configure the media player, then the media player's user configurability is dead on arrival.
You know you have the option to hide that shit right?
But "the average user" can learn how to configure it if they put their mind to it. There is nothing inherently hard about it. It's not like you have to solve differential equations every time you start the player. I start mpv by double-clicking on video files, just like everyone else. If "the average user" can't do this, they're being an idiot. Also, unless you're using VLC, you're not an average user either. Why does it matter what "the average user" can do if you and I aren't ones?
>It's not elitism to call someone an idiot if they say they can't do these things.
You understand that the majority of the population cannot do these things, correct? Computer literacy is a thing.
Is it possible to make MPC select a logo at random from a collection in a folder each time it starts up?
>if they put their mind to it
Does not compute.
I'm a firm believer that every person has an equal ability to learn, regardless of any genetic predispositions toward intelligence or attention length, and if you properly educated some aboriginal bushman that you found sleeping in a road, you could train him to program his own media player, after enough time, if he was properly motivated. However, the average user of a media player does not want to waste precious minutes or hours of his life typing code into the command line, building the parts of the program that the developers decided not to because of their autism, and generally fucking around needlessly when things like MPC-HC and KCP exist, and do everything that MPV purports to do, with none of the headaches.
How do you guys play your anime? I used to use MadVR but since upgrading to a Maxwell based GPU, it's completely broken. EVR can't even run for some videos on both the GPU and Intel CPU.
I had a Holo picture somewhere.
--wid is for embedding mpv's video window in another program's window. It's designed for mpv GUIs like SMPlayer and Baka MPlayer, but it can be used to embed the mpv window in anything. 8652956 is the HWND of that particular Notepad instance's text editor. You need something like Spy++ to get the number, so unfortunately it's not practical.
>Those aren't the default hotkeys, so your point is invalid.
No, my point is still very salient because adjusting the hotkeys in MPC is extremely easy, involving a GUI options menu. A few intuitive clicks is all it takes to get the hotkeys just as I like them. What does a new user have to do to adjust MPV's hotkeys? Read a thick manual, open up a command prompt, type in a bunch of non-intuitive shit, and hope it all goes well... are you starting to realize why people hate MPV yet?

See, this is the problem. This is exaggerating the difficulty of using mpv. I don't have to type a line of "code into the command line" to use mpv. I don't use any "parts of the program" that I have to build myself. Sometimes you have to build it yourself if you want access to parts of the program that are still in development, but most people (including me) don't need to give a shit. The only thing I do differently to an MPC-HC user is write options in a text file instead of using a GUI to configure, but the "average user" doesn't reconfigure their media player anyway, so it doesn't matter. They wouldn't know what a "Jinc" is unless you told them, so why does it it matter whether you tell them to click on a checkbox buried in some dialog somewhere or to paste a line of text into a text file?
You have to create it. Make a file called mpv.conf next to mpv.exe.
>why does it it matter whether you tell them to click on a checkbox buried in some dialog somewhere or to paste a line of text into a text file?
Arguably, because if the checkbox is buried sensibly in a sensibly named dialog somewhere, with enough searching you can divine the proper checkbox to accomplish your task.
As opposed to pulling config arguments out of your ass, which is more of a crap shoot.
How would I know any of this without combing through a manual? I don't even care about the GUI for normal playback (except for one thing I'll touch on in a minute), but having a GUI for options is much better than trying to deal with configs.
I don't use anything except the scrubber bar in the playback GUI (which really should never cover the video in the middle like your screenshot). The closest thing that I use the playback GUI for is being able to right click and access all my settings as it is playing, and even see changes in the settings live.
But the real reason I will never use mpv as long as it tries to be what it tries to be now, is because the playlist management is utter shit. I want to be able to click a folder containing subfolders, hit play, and have everything show up in a playlist. I also want to be able to easily (i.e. by simply dragging and dropping) rearrange this playlist. For example, recently I had a bunch of poorly labeled music files, and as part of my reorganizing and renaming them, I hit play on the folder containing them, rearranged them in the playlist how I wanted them, and saved the playlist off to use as a template for ordering them later. Tell me how I would do this in mpv.
madVR's configuration dialog is not "intuitive." Have you seen it? At least mpv's manual gives you a list of recommended shaders and tells you the pros and cons of them. It's accessible to everyone who's literate.

1st world problems.
There is probably some kind of external file manager program you can get that alternates the name of the file each time you close the program, but that might be approaching /g/ tier.
Actually, it would be nice if mpv had an installer that did this. The closest thing it has to an installer right now is a batch file that sets up file associations, but there's totally room for a program that makes sure things are up to date, sets up file associations, and lets you add common options to the config file.
Yes you're right why go to school when you can be a happy clueless bum?
But funnily with mpv you can just literally download pre-compiled binary extract it, drag your file to mpv.exe and you're good to go no need to read manual just like you want
Define your so called "intuitive"
you totally bulshitting here
>1st world problems.
EE. There's also a possibility I change from CS minor + EE to just CompE, since the non-major-elective classes are pretty much identical.
Don't do that.
>Yes you're right why go to school when you can be a happy clueless bum?
Because it increases your earning potential, something that will almost never be true about MPV.
>But funnily with mpv you can just literally download pre-compiled binary extract it, drag your file to mpv.exe and you're good to go no need to read manual just like you want
Maybe if you want to go out of your way to use a media player with equivalent ease of use but is a lot shittier.
>I guess you're just too stupid to use MPV.
Literally every rebuttal from someone who uses MPV ever. Being stupid or smart has absolutely nothing to do with it, MPV is trash hyped up by skids.
Futzing around with a bunch of checkboxes and radio buttons in a GUI options menu is a lot easier and more intuitive than trying to sift through War and fucking Peace to figure out what magical string of characters to put in which of however many properly named config files is right.
>Define your so called "intuitive"
Intuitive is an adjective that derives from the noun, intuition, and means "able to be done without rational thought, or capable of being known by immediate apprehension."
If I open a program, and I want to do something that seems optional to the program's main function, then I can look under the main menus for a submenu called "Options." If I want to accomplish a task that seems to be related to the key strokes or mouse clicks that are used to interact with a program, I can look in the Options submenu for a tab called "Keys." If I want to edit a key's association, I can click on the key or find an "Edit" option. The most obvious method for replacing the key's association would be to type the new association, and then, to apply it, click the "Apply" option. All of the above was accomplished by means of "immediate apprehension," and not by means of rational thought, study, or practice.
Why build a program to be non-intuitive when you could just do it right and build it to be intuitive?
I want to use mpv, I really do. But if my problems don't have a solution, then what can I do? >>123606173
If you can't think of a rebuttal, say that. Does SMplayer have the playlist management I need?
I'm just going to leave this here. Feel free to tell me that this is a piece of shit because it's all I can use since MadVR no longer works on Maxwell GPUs.
>>i-i dont want muh scrubber cover muh waifu
Fixed, pic related
>>I-i want muh playlist
>>Playing music on video player
Really? while it is perfectly possible with mpv you should consider suicide
What else, you want me to change your diaper?
Yeah, you're right. Playlist management is something you really need a GUI for. I don't mind because I don't tend to use playlists, but if you want to manage a playlist and re-order stuff, you have to use an mpv GUI (like Baka MPlayer or Bomi) or just stick to MPC-HC.
So this is your final argument? really?
O-ok muh lord
I knew the scrubber could be fixed, but that wasn't the main point. Can you change options live and see how they affect it?
That doesn't tell me anything.
>>>Playing music on video player
That was just an example of how playlists can be used. If I had replaced "music files" with "video files" in my post would you have replied the way you did?
Beyond all this, why are you answering in such a condescending manner?
I looked at bakamplayer after >>123606770 posted it, but it didn't seem right. Bomi looks pretty good, but it's Linux only.
Why would I use GNU + Linux over Windows 7 like I have now?
You don't even have to read the manual. You can just copy options from other people.
That's what everyone who used HOW_DID_I_PLAYED_BACK.txt did, anyway. If someone wrote a "HOW_DID_I_PLAYED_BACK.txt" for mpv, it would be much simpler:
1. Make a file called "mpv.conf" next to mpv.exe
2. Type "vo=opengl-hq" in it
>Bomi looks pretty good, but it's Linux only.
I think the guy is working towards making it available on Windows. There's Windows builds on GitHub:
I have no idea if it's any good.
Not that guy, but I hate how simple it is. It doesn't expose anything useful in its options dialog, so if you want high quality video rendering, you have to use mpv.conf anyway. As for key bindings, it uses mpv's command syntax, so you might as well just use mpv and write an input.conf. The only reason I can see for using Baka MPlayer over plain mpv is for the GUI playlist editor. I guess that's a decent reason, but I just wish the rest of the program was better.
>Why build a program to be non-intuitive when you could just do it right and build it to be intuitive?
If you've ever done GUI programming before, you'd know it's a pain. Everything is tedious, none of the frameworks are any good, nothing works like how you'd expect, and the whole thing is tangential to the actual problems you're trying to solve, anyway. If you were writing a program for yourself, you wouldn't need to give it a GUI because you wouldn't need to be handheld through a program you wrote. If your program has a text configuration file and key bindings, power users won't need a GUI either. You only need a GUI if you're interested in picking up a wider audience than just yourself and the people who like text-config. The mpv devs are clearly not interested in this.
It's an issue with madvr and xysubfilter, I think. Make sure subtitle performance is checked, test it, and if that doesn't work, just use the full size option on the right.
>>Can you change options live?
You really expect me to download ffmpeg, record my screen playing random anime while changing the osc layout, encode it to webm, and upload it just to satisfy you?

>>That doesn't tell me anything
I really want to avoid this as much as possible but in this case the term "git gud" is the most appropriate my friend (you can't expect me to teach you Lua here i'm sorry)

But you just pointed me at a github thing with zero explanation of what it even means. I mean, looking it up, Lua is a programming language, so do you mean that I have to learn a programming language to add playlist management to mpv?
The recommended settings are the default settings. If you want to use what the mpv devs want you to use, you don't change anything. The only problem is that the default settings are conservative. They'll work on everything. opengl-hq won't work if your computer's a toaster or if your drivers don't support OpenGL 3.2.
Stock mpv isn't. It has accurate enough colours, but it uses bilinear scaling. It's probably equivalent to EVR in MPC-HC. mpv with vo=opengl-hq is equivalent to installing madVR, and custom vo=opengl-hq settings are equivalent to using custom settings in madVR.
To be fair you can't call mpc-hc + madvr stock either
Both player is on par with custom setting not to mention that vo=opengl-hq is the easiest way to gain significant quality improvement
madvr is abandoned and deprecated while mpv is actively developed
also mpv use less system resource
Nope, it's a guide to compile mpv from source. You should only need it if you plan on contributing code to mpv yourself or if you want to use some fork or branch that no one has made a Windows build for yet.
Official Windows builds are here: https://mpv.srsfckn.biz/

Aren't you here to convince us plebs to use mpv?
Is a guide to compile MPV from the source if you want to get latest commit available from github
Considering doing this if you want bleeding edge functionality from developer
(Quite easy just follow native compilation guide on the bottom, basically it walk you through the entire process then you can just copy mpv.exe and mpv.com from bin folder or you can play from there)
For pre-compiled binary you can just extract and play you can download it from here (this one also good)

That's probably a good thing. If prattling on the internet is enough to convince you that mpv isn't worth the trouble, and you're not prepared to try it yourself and find out, mpv is not for you.
