  • Glow

    mpv Config File Generator for Windows (by MattMcManis)

    Project mention: (O)h VL(C), we love you. | | 2021-08-23

    I think SMPlayer is the most popular and easy to use one, but it looks ugly as hell. seems to be the next most popular and it looks just like the regular MPV with more features built into the GUI. Glow is a simple alternative to make your own config to control features, but I don't know if that is more customizable than VLC. Generally, if you want something specific, you do it yourself with MPV.
