A player for professionals

MPV is a lightweight player with a minimalistic interface. It is the fork of the MPlayer. The developers have borrowed the primary advantages of MPlayer and added many new ones.

Like Mplayer, MPV has no graphical interface in its basic version, so it is not tied to a specific interface. It is up to the user to decide what interface to install. MPV can be a good lighter alternative to VLC. Even though MPV is not tied to a specific interface, almost all its interfaces are minimalistic and lightweight. They consist only of a video player window and a pop-up control panel. This player is multiplatform and has a version for Windows, and we will tell you about it.

Primary features

  • Support for various video and audio codecs;

  • Subtitle support;

  • Hotkey support;

  • The ability to play videos from Youtube and other streaming services;

  • Use of video card resources for video decoding.

Support for many formats

One of the primary advantages of MPV for Windows is support for all known formats. It also supports subtitles, and you can customize them as you like. The player supports all popular audio and video codecs, OpenGL, and playback from online services. Videos can be scaled, and brightness, contrast, and color rendering can be adjusted. If you prefer to use the program in console mode, you can enjoy many ready-made commands for control.

The fastest player

Most users who have ever used the free MPV media player for playing audio and videos on computers can say that it is the fastest media player worldwide. The player works on any version of Windows and is also portable and cross-platform. Its primary advantages are:

  • unrivaled speed of opening audio and video files;
