It's way better than vlc. it's the video player of the century. you can use the custom fonts in subtitles which you can't do in vlc, low system resources, minimal. Great video player indeed.

The minimum of functions, but better quality, smoother, does not even have a problem with formats for which VLC also has a problem. FANTASTIC!

I recently upgraded to this because mplayer2 is gone, but mpv seems fantastic, all by default the framerate, the responsiveness, and support for almost all of my files worked perfectly. there are also configurable options for everything, so all of my custom scripts for mplayer and hotkeys are all ported into mpv in no time now, even better than in mplayer actually because the run command lets you launch commands with expanded variables i didn't have before

Has potential. Needs work to be as useful as SMPlayer/MPlayer. I will not use it until all of the missing features from SMPlayer/MPlayer are added.

Highly recommended in conjunction with Smplayer. It is basically the faster, more updated fork of mplayer.

One of the best video players for Linux. Performance wise on par with MPC-HC (on Windows).
