    Re: VLC doesn't play V_AV1 codec video

    The latest mpv (version 2:0.32.0+git4~bionic1) and smplayer (version 18.2.2~ds0-1) failed too. I've just removed them via ubuntu software and then their repos.
    Now I'm going to try to install vlc via snap along with my "stock" vlc, I hope not to do a mess

    Re: VLC doesn't play V_AV1 codec video

    See if it works by forcing mpv to use its av1 codec. It could be a problem arising from the naming scheme used by the video:

    Code:
    mpv -vd libaom-av1 /path/to/video/file
    To see all the codecs available in mpv, use the command "mpv -vd help".
    If you ask for help, do not abandon your request. Please have the courtesy to check for responses and thank the people who helped you.

    To clear up -
    My current 18.04 mpv build does not have libaom enabled in ffmpeg, the 20.04 build does. I added it for rare cases where libaom performs better than libdav1d, usually for 10bit encodes. Likely the next 18.04 build will get libaom as an option , note that current ffmpeg defaults to libdav1d.

    So, your using -vd libaom-av1 has no effect and is ignored by mpv. While playing a vid go shift+i to get an overlay that would include decoder used.
    Using just plain mpv /media/...../XYZ.mkv should work fine.

    As far as smplayer or even gnome-mpv they also should work with no issue, no particular config needed, see screen.
    In your case the smplayer you have is too old for recent mpv, error is "Error parsing option input-file (option not found)"
    This was fixed in latest smplayer release, use the smplayer ppa.

    edit: additionally, the snap version of vlc supports av1 thru libdav1d, .deb versions need libavcodecXX to have av1 support..

    Re: VLC doesn't play V_AV1 codec video

    To pass parameters like "-vd codec" to mpv in SMPlayer I believe you need to add them via Options > Advanced > Mplayer/mpv. I've never tried using them on the command line.
    If you ask for help, do not abandon your request. Please have the courtesy to check for responses and thank the people who helped you.

    ok, sorry but i was a bit confused about that. what i can tell is: before the SeijiSensei command mpv didn't play my mkv and after it played. now it plays that mkv without command line ("plain mpv"), i just don't know why.

    ok, i solved "again" and now my mkv plays with smplayer 20.4.2. i ran the following commands:
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:rvm/smplayer
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install smplayer smtube smplayer-themes smplayer-skins
    and i've just removed mpv player via sw center and then its repos because one av1 codec player is enough.
    by the way: could i remove "smtube smplayer-themes smplayer-skins" now? i just need the "stock" player.

    note @SeijiSensei, just for my future knowledge
    i've tried to paste "-vd libdav1d" and then "-vd libaom-av1" too within "options" and then within "video filters" in smplayer but that error remained. did you mean to do that?

    I find this post^ a bit confusing..

    smplayer can't play anything by itself, it's just a frontend. It uses either mpv or mplayer. So if you remove ppa mpv it'll use mplayer or repo mpv. In either case there is no support for av1.

    Adding -vd libdav1d to options in smplayer is unnecessary, it's the default. Adding -vd libaom-av1 to smplayer in 18.04 is a waste as currently not supported.

    The"latest"vlc snap, i.e 4.x is quite a change for vlc, I would never use. The 3.9.2 vlc snap is ok but tedious to browse to files..

    screen shows option added to smplayer in 20.04 where it would have the intended effect (though libaom is a poor choice most of the time..

    Re: VLC doesn't play V_AV1 codec video

    sorry, it was my fault because i'm very newbie. now i see smplayer's just a frontend and i see my misunderstanding.

    now i'd like to understand what a snap installation of 3.9.2 vlc could mean for my personal case, i mean for my graphics issues because sometimes my ubuntu freezes due to that. in other words i've to evaluate if it's better to have stock vlc + smplayer (just to play av1 codec videos) or get only snap 3.9.2 vlc for everything.
    so how to install 3.9.2 vlc via snap?

    You would have to try it and decide for yourself.
    To make easier remove the .deb vlc if installed, this will remove all vlc packages, typically 15..
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge vlc*.
    Then install the snap version
    Code:
    sudo snap install vlc
    When done open vlc as you've previously done.

    To go back,
    Code:
    sudo snap remove vlc
    Code:
    sudo apt install vlc
