    Hi
    I'm very satisfied with MPlayer, but I've compiled mpv and it's working reasonably well from command line.

    I use MPlayer with SMPlayer GUI so I tried to set up mpv to use UMPlayer GUI.

    But it doesn't work.

    Seems that the fancy command UMPlayer uses has MPlayer option(s) that are unknown to mpv.
    In the preferences section of UMPlayer it allows to add extra options to the command.
    But I don't know how to edit the command to remove the offending option(s).
    Maybe it's hard-wired into the program.

    Any idea how to do this?

    It does seem to be hard-coded in. If you run a grep on the UMPlayer source code, the options that that code block shows that it was trying to use are located in umplayer/trunk/src/core.cpp. They're defined like this:
    Code:
    proc->addArgument("-msglevel");
    but otherwise look to not be wrapped in more complex code. It might be possible to just replace the options that can be replaced with their mpv equivalents, and comment out the ones that can't. Then you'd have to compile UMPlayer again (I've never tried building any of the GUIs for mplayer, so I don't know what's involved there).

    Of course, that sort of change will make UMPlayer incompatible with MPlayer/MPlayer2. To make it compatible with all three, the mpv options would have to be defined separately and ifdeffed to code that detects the GUI is using mpv instead of one of the other two.

    Thanks qyot27
    That may be the way to do it.
    But I'm not a pathfinder.

    I will sit tight for now.
    Somebody will come up with a GUI solution when mpv is further developed.

    You underestimate yourself....
    You think that's air you're breathing now?
