    I haven’t used VLC for ages, and even back then I preferred MPC-HC (on Windows) or mplayer2 (on Linux). I’m happy mpv user (on Windows and Linux) since its very beginning.

    Are there any users who use both mpv and VLC often, and could shed a light what VLC has that mpv cannot provide them?

      Opening videos straight from the browsers “open with dialogue”. Using subtitles with VLC is more convenient for me. Few years ago I used VLC more when mpv had problems with some matroska containers, don’t know if this is problem anymore.

        VLC is a bit more Windows-friendly. But on unix, I use gnome-mpv.

          Do you use vanilla mpv or some kind of front-end with it?

          1. 2

            No GUI front-ends. I’m mostly keyboard-oriented user, but mpv’s built-in OSC is actually good too, so sometimes I operate with mouse in mpv window.

          Windows 64-bit link is broken.

            I couldn’t find any mentions of the 64-bit version so I had to look on their download site to grab one.
