    Help with MPV Options

    Was wondering if someone could help me with MPV options. What I need is as follows:
    • Automatic episode detection so i can click next and go to the next episode
    • High quality playback
    • Automatic save position on exit.

    Re:3, see screen 1 If your build has man pages in pdf then you can open in evince. Also available in html online
    If wanting all the time add to mpv.conf, ex. scr. 2, line 6
    Re:1 - don't know, don't have such files
    Re:2 - that's very much dependent on your files, hardware - read the man

    If you install smplayer and configure it to use mpv (Options > Preferences > General; enter /usr/bin/mpv in the box), it can handle both the first and last requests. In your file browser, select all the episodes, then right-click and choose "Enqueue in SMPlayer". Alternatively use Options > Playlist and select all the episode files there.

    SMPlayer will automatically save your position when you close it.

    As for the second issue, this depends on the video card you are using and the quality of the file you are playing. I watch 720p/1080p files encoded in H.264 and stored in the Matroska container all the time and have no issues with quality. In smplayer, you can try different video drivers (Options > Preferences > Video; select from drop-down list) to see which one works best for you. On my computer with an NVIDIA card, I use the "vdpau" driver. On some systems OpenGL works better, while on others I use xv.

    Total: 452 options
    ===============

    Still for me the best video player not used any other in 2 years

    i use

    Code:
    --fs
    --resume-playback
    --save-position-on-quit
    --screenshot-template=/media/extradrive/home/shantiq/Pictures/mpv/%F☛%n
    --screenshot-format=png
    --screenshot-png-compression=9
    --sub-text-back-color=0.9/1.0/0.25
    --fs is fullscreen and i love my yellow-boxed subs :] and to maximize quality of screenshots // so many options ...

    enter

    Code:
    --save-position-on-quit
    in a text document called [may need to be created] so:

    Code:
    sudo gedit  ~/.config/mpv/mpv.conf
    Generally in mpv.conf -- isn't needed, may (still) be some options where it's a hindrance. Also to note that is a user config file, don't use sudo on.

    OT. - a useful lua script - https://github.com/Argon-/mpv-stats/

    Maybe ownership of that file or directory got changed, if you open a terminal at normal prompt what's this show (doesn't matter if any files have root in name, looking for owner
    Code:
    ls -lA -R |grep root

    Re: Help with MPV Options

    hi again mc ths is the outcome

    Code:
    ls -lA -R |grep root
    drwx------  2 root    root          4096 Feb 28  2015 .gvfs
    -rw-r--r--  1 root    root           105 Feb 27  2015 .inputrc
    -rw-r--r--  1 shantiq root          7460 Jun 23  2015 radios
    drwxr-xr-x  2 root    root          4096 Mar 13 08:03 .rpmdb
    drwx------  2 root    root     4096 Apr  6 14:17 dconf
    ls: cannot open directory ./.cache/dconf: Permission denied
    drwx------  2 shantiq root     4096 Jun 20  2015 leafpad
    -rwxrwxrwx 1 shantiq root 34 May  8 20:04 leafpadrc
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root    root      210 May  8 08:31 mpv.conf
    ls: cannot open directory ./.gvfs: Permission denied

    so changed it now

    Code:
    sudo chown shantiq mpv.conf 
    
    giving me
    -rw-r--r-- 1 shantiq root      217 May  9 05:58 mpv.conf
    and therefore no need for sudo anymore

    do not know what the OP will find on his setup .... :]

    You should try to avoid using sudo <a gui app>. If need be go -
    sudo -H <app>
