  • SmoothVideo Project(SVP) free alternative?
    I tried to set up mpv but the results always have some level of soap opera which is pretty bad.

  • Why is there no std::stou(i)? | 2021-02-26
    Honestly? I don't know. It appears like there are only bad and less bad options out there. The whole locale design was a huge mistake.
  • Subtitle Edit - Audio scrubbing?
    However I think MPV might. So if you install MPV and set up Subtitle Edit to use that as your video player, and also configure MPV with audio scrubbing enabled if you're really lucky it will work in Subtitle Edit.
  • Radeon Software tray icon looks bad. I think something like this would be better | 2021-02-22

    Media player: MPV
  • Good resources for locale-aware/wide character programming
    Locales are broken and should generally be avoided. The interfaces are bad (ill-defined global state) and locale behavior is surprising an unintuitive.
  • PC Mag states the Brave browser is one of the best downloads for 2021
    Not the guy you responded to but actually unironically yes. pipe-viewer + mpv + youtube-dlp. If in the browser, use Invidious.

  • Can anyone recommend a music player that has a mini player like that of Windows Media Player? | 2021-02-17
    I think, with most Music Players, it is about the embedded cover art work in nowadays music files. Only Music Player I know of that can natively hide cover art of music files without removing them permanently, is mpv. But the way to set up mpv options is through a config file, so you owuld have to read into it a bit and put in the right command to hide the cover art.
  • Return OSS support to mpv | 2021-02-16
    The code of audio processing was refactored, and the lead dev of mpv just removed some backends instead of trivial patching. Long story started here -
