That would be very useful. BUT I'm also glad there isn't one.........if you get what I mean.

I don't get people's paranoia of history. I just really don't.

J RIVER has one, seriously though I was shocked at how well it plays video :O [as I don't use it for music at all]

Why just ffmpeg?

And on that note, I watched all of Serial Experiments Lain, on Sm Player, which made it very digitized and wonky... I actually that it was intential as part of the Technology heavy mood xD 

 

Still J River works like magic, and I got a LEGAL version for free! The guy I bought my First Hm 601, used J River to load music onto his hm 601... and he offered me one of his last two activation codes so lucky me! 

How's typesetting? Can you adjust color, post-processing, the likes? Ordered chapters?

 

I swear I didn't even know it could play video until yesterday. But I was sure there'd be at least ONE person on this forum that would use it for video, hence, the poll.

I found that one could do this with individual files and mplayer variants. Still don't see the appeal. A true fan memorizes the time playing down to the last second so they can remember where to take funny screenshots.

I think ffmpeg is good unless you have to burn in subtitles or something. It also makes you look cooler because command line. 

 

idk, I just use Handbrake... 

 

Or you can just keep your hand on screenshot key.

I beileve you can, there should be like a trial version of it on the interwebs. I know that mine is in Purple because that's what I like, but i've never gone through to much trouble to organize it, as I've always click'd n dragged the videos to it, butt there is a history option, for example over the course of a day, every Drag'd n Drop video goes onto a play list. So what I've also done is drag 4 at a time so it can auto cycle to the next one.

 

But I don't know 100%, I just like it for it flawless play back on my system! Oh and another good thing, I updated to 13.1 Catalyst drivers and FINALLY the damn Video Tearing is gone, when the GPU was brand new and had it's like Febuary 2012 Drivers, it worked flawlessy and EVERY MONTH after that, every driver update lead to video tearing... I even uninstalled the drivers completely and reinstalled the Febuary Driver with no luck, and FINALLY an update fixed it so I'm happy <3

I've pretty much stopped using history or playlist features. Ranger can selectively bookmark files. So all I need is to enter the folder, hit a shortcut, press enter and it does the work for me.

And boom, mpv as default player spawns back to where I left off.

I've tried Baka Player on Windows but the GUI (i.e. the only other thing added onto mpv) was nowhere near as efficient as the native keybindings.

VLC can do the same and that's why I'm digging it on framebuffer setups (mpv's culled off directfb support)
