    • Reliably supports more newer encodes + minimal InsaneFromEarthJul 2016 • 5 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • 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 • 4 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • There was a time when VLC was justifiably considered the best open-source cross-platform movie player. MPV has closed the gap substantially and is likely to work out-of-the-box in a minority of cases where VLC gets stuck. Excellent software. Open souce (trustworthy) and free, of course.
