Some options support passing values in a more structured way instead of flat strings, and can avoid the suboption parsing mess.For example, to avoid the need for filename escaping.For this reason, and in case you are actually interested in the real timestamps, this behavior can be disabled with means that the selection of the entry to play is left to the playback resume mechanism (default).If an entry with the given index doesn't exist, the behavior is unspecified and might change in future mpv versions.(This is a mess and should probably be changed at some point.) You can also write file-specific configuration files.If you wish to have a configuration file for a file called 'video.avi', create a file named 'conf' with the file-specific options in it and put it in # normal top-level option fullscreen=yes # a profile that can be enabled with --profile=big-cache [big-cache] cache=123400 demuxer-readahead-secs=20 [slow] profile-desc="some profile name" # reference a builtin profile profile=gpu-hq [fast] vo=vdpau # using a profile again extends it [slow] framedrop=no # you can also include other profiles profile=big-cache will be saved in the working directory, using the first available number - no files will be overwritten.mpv is a media player based on MPlayer and mplayer2.It supports a wide variety of video file formats, audio and video codecs, and subtitle types.
However, to compensate for the lack of expected GUI behavior, mpv will in some cases start with some settings changed to behave slightly more like a GUI mode.
(This is different from MPlayer and mplayer2.) Also, if any option is changed at runtime (via input commands), they are not reset when a new file is played.
Sometimes, it is useful to change options per-file. DVDs which have been copied on to a hard drive or other mounted filesystem (by e.g.
Image subtitles are implemented as a bitmap video stream which can be superimposed over the main movie.
mpv's subtitle styling and positioning options and keyboard shortcuts generally do not work with image-based subtitles. For details and platform specifics (in particular Windows paths) see the FILES section.
Currently this happens only in the following cases: Specify a priority list of audio languages to use.
