simple GTK+ frontend for mpv
  20 reviews

Celluloid (formerly GNOME MPV) interacts with mpv via the client API exported by libmpv, allowing access to mpv's powerful playback capabilities.

Not the most amazing media player - in fact it's pretty basic. However, I have found that it works better with DVDs than VLC (at least for my system). If you're having trouble watching movies on VLC or some other media player, give this a go.

Simple. Effective. Perfect if you're an average user who don't care about the advanced stuff.

Tried to play a DVD with Celluloid via the file manager. All it did was just make my DVD drive spin super fast, and when I restarted my DVD drive started spinning super fast again. When I play the DVD via the Celluloid interface, I never get to a selection screen and one of the episodes plays on its own. Why is this the default media player for Linux Mint?

It doesn't even let you click on the screen to play/pause and the bar to move position is super tiny on a 4K screen

Perfect for reading a video when "vlc" doesn't want to display it because of a codec problem, in fact celluloid opens all the videos whatever the codec, the only flaw is that it doesn't know how to resume playback say at 30s, it starts again at the beginning of the track.

Не смог нормально воспроизвести лицензионный dvd-диск "Влюбленный скорпион".Крашился и останавливался.Я даже перезагружал систему,но и после перезагрузки плеер все также отказывался нормально воспроизводить dvd-диск.А в vlc проблем с воспроизведением настоящих дисков нет!

As stated by others - this shouldnt be the deafult player! features missing, non standard controls/shortcuts. Volume controls completely wrong. etc, etc.

A great and simple video player, if you're an average user and don't care much about the advanced stuff. It plays every song and music that I want to and it did it's job. I haven't had a bad experience with this program at all and I think that it's an okay player.

Crashes when pluggin USB or tapping enter. No way to start a song with double click, among other issues. I still find better xplayer. window out of scale. Low volume

a great simple media player, vlc is good but overkill because vlc has just too many features that make it bloated, this celluloid on other hand is much better faster and simpler to use. its just what you want a simple media player :)

A very good video player. It works. VLC is good but there are problems. Thanks for this wonderful video player!

I am very disappointed with this one. I come from Linux Mint 17.3 Mate that has Video (Totem), it was very useful to show information about what is playing (properties), playlist among others. Simplicity is not equal to utility.

Very basic functionality like DLNA access is entirely missing. No swipe control for volume, or positioning. No way to seek to a time position. No context menu - right click is wasted on pausing. In no way is this ready to be Mint's default player.
