  4. I've interest in this topic but didn't investigate it in depth yet. Which OS are you running? There are differences between W 7 and W 10, ten has restrictions. What can be used to make an app default in 10 is the 'Open With' feature of the File Explorer.

  5. it's win10, the one from works, even in win10.


    just did a bulk replace from "mpv.exe" to "mpvnet.exe", it works without problem, maybe you can add it to the zip next time.

  6. I don't have experience with batch files and spent some time thinking which tool I can use and decided then to use an installer (Inno Setup) in combination with a small .NET command line app that runs hidden by the installer changing the registry (uninstall is implemented).

  7. ### 2.2

    - messages boxes had always the info icon even if a different icon (error, warning, question) was intended
    - instead of silently do nothing on unknown commands there is now a error message listing available commands and showing the location of the default bindings, this helps when commands are removed or renamed
    - there was a problem fixed that made the cursor hidden when it should be visible
    - dragging a youtube URL on would break certain input related features
    - there is now an installer with file extension registration (limited on Win 10) available
    - WM_APPCOMMAND media keys were not working in the input (shortcut) editor and there were no defaults for prev and next defined
    Quote Quote  
  8. wow. love the update, make things easier.
    Quote Quote  
  9. ### 2.3 (2019-04-04)

    - dragging a youtube URL on would still break something, it should work now
    - when the main window gets focus/activation it will check the clibboard for a YouTube video and ask to play it
    - libmpv updated
    - changing to normal size from fullscreen resulted in a too large window in some circumstances
    - some default key bindings and menu structure have changed and the input.conf file has a description added on top <>
    - the file association code was completely rewriten, it's now contained within mpvnet.exe instead of a separate application and it adds a few more keys
    - various new info added to the wiki: <>
    - On Top feature was implemented using mpv's native property 'ontop', default bindings at: <>

  10. Hello. Please tell me how to start playing a particular *.mp4 file after compilation in Visual Studio? Where and how do I set this option so that the player starts playing my file right away ?
    Quote Quote  
  11. Every player is very likely to accept a command line like so:

    player.exe <source file path>

    If your source file path has blanks you need to enclose it in quotes, so it looks like this:

    player.exe "C:\Users\frank\Desktop\test file.mp4"

    Visual Studio allows you to pass a command line when you start debugging.

    In VS go to: Main Menu > Project > Properties > Debug > Command line arguments

    Just enter your source file path there and don't forget to enclose it in quotes if the path contains blanks.

  24. I'm trying to modify mpv.conf (as described in the manual) so that the numeric-pad arrow keys perform the same function as the other arrow keys (like SMPLayer) and also so the volume is incremented in 1% increments rather than 10% (also like SMPlayer). My edits aren't having any effect. I'm using the portable version.

  25. Key bindings are not in mpv.conf but in input.conf. Keypad keys are KP0, KP1...

    Hi. I just tried your version of the player. Then I went back to try the mpv I have (2018-10-02|64-bit by lachs0r) I do not work several buttons. Double clicking on the screen with the left mouse button does not go to full screen and the F button does not work for me to move to full screen, why can it be?
    Quote Quote  
  28. Double clicking on the screen with the left mouse button does not go to full screen
    It can be fixed by adding the following line to input.conf:

    MBTN_LEFT_DBL cycle fullscreen
    The original mpv default bindings have it included:

    The next release has it included as well:

    If you want cycle fullscreen with f you need a line like so:

    f cycle fullscreen
    f must be lowercase because F uppercase is the same as Shift+f

    Actually many buttons have been deconfigured. For example with Q I can not close the player. I attach the player to you as I have configured it.
