MPV 0.9.1 Media Player released

MPV 0.9.1 recently released, is a free, open source, and cross-platform movie player based on MPlayer and mplayer2. MPV is a fork of mplayer2 and MPlayer. It shares some features with the former projects while introducing many more new features. It supports a wide variety of video file formats, audio and video codecs, and subtitle types.


MPV 0.9.1 changelog


  • mpv’s IRC channel moved from #mpv-player to #mpv on
  • Documentation updates.
  • The default value for the –ytdl-format option is now best, in order to work around youtube-dl’s 2015.04.26 release enabling DASH by default, as FFmpeg / Libav do not yet properly support DASH.
  • When seeking, the current timestamp will show the predicted seek timestamp instead, until the final timestamp is resolved. Improves UI responsiveness on slow streams and/or large seeks.

Bug fixes

  • Corrected the release marker on DOCS/client-api-changes. The release manager forgot to fix it before release…
  • Fix vo_vdpau rendering garbage lines on H.264 video with non-mod16 size
  • Fix a crash on exit if the “sub_reload” command had run successfully.
  • Fixed seeking with the mouse when osc-seekbarstyle=bar is set
  • (IPC) Fixed encoding of UTF-8 data in JSON
