We've compiled most of the mpv's hotkeys together. We hope they will allow you to control mpv better. If you'd like to access user-defined bindings, go to ~/.config/mpv/input.conf .

Not sure why the developers chose to pick random keys for controls, but multimedia keys also don't work with MPV.

IMHO this application needs finishing (like MM key support and a configuration dialogue.)

I think I'll stick with VLC for now.

It works here, are you on VPN? It checks if your IP number listed in spam lists before registering a vote. Sometimes IPs of VPNs get listed in spam lists.

the L key seems to do an A-B Loop. Sadly, I'm looking for a regular repeat loop.

Lowercase "l" is A-B looping, capital "L" toggles infinite looping of the current file. :)

Hey guys does anyone also know when you have loaded in multiple videos how you can skip to the next video? Is there a shortcut for this?

Guest says in reply to Guest254 : 13 months ago 5/25/2020 9:37 AM
Yes, you can use < and > keys to jump between videos.
