Mpv is a movie player based on MPlayer and mplayer2. It supports a wide variety
of video file formats, audio and video codecs, and subtitle types. Special
input URL types are available to read input from a variety of sources other
than disk files. Depending on platform, a variety of different video and audio
output methods are supported.
Mpv has an OpenGL, Vulkan, and D3D11 based video output that is capable of many
features loved by videophiles, such as video scaling with popular high quality
algorithms, color management, frame timing, interpolation, HDR, and more.
While mpv strives for minimalism and provides no real GUI, it has a small
controller on top of the video for basic control.
Mpv can leverage most hardware decoding APIs on all platforms. Hardware
decoding can be enabled at runtime on demand.
Powerful scripting capabilities can make the player do almost anything. There
is a large selection of user scripts on the wiki.
A straightforward C API was designed from the ground up to make mpv usable as
a library and facilitate easy integration into other applications.
