17 It took me maybe an hour to read through the manpage and migrate my mplayer
18 settings, but mpv looks really great. Plus its install footprint is only 3
19 megs instead of 20 (including debug stuff).
21 I was virtually an mplayer-only-user ever since I switched to linux. I tried
22 mplayer2 long ago, but ditched it (I think due to the lack of mencoder).
23 Recently I had been using vlc for playback with complex subtitles in Japanese
24 anime series, but otherwise actually liked mplayer 1’s subtitle output, b/c
25 it allowed for subs to be shown in the black margins below the video in
26 fullscreen mode.
