    • I had some rare cases were VLC and mplayer couldn't play a video correctly. MPV did it for me on Linux and Windows. Also like the GUI (or the lack of it) a lot more. vektorwegDec 2016 Disagree   Agree
    • There was a time when VLC was justifiably considered the best open-source cross-platform movie player.
