Setup

2000px-Mpv-logo.svg.pngYou simply have to download the two “.conf” files (mpv.conf + input.conf).

With mpv on Windows 10:
Create a new folder (e.g. “mpv”) for mpv where you want, download mpv and extract all the files inside the .7z to that folder.
Copy the two “.conf” files inside that mpv folder.
Download the master.zip and extract everything from the “installer” folder to your created mpv folder. Run the “mpv-install.bat” inside the “installer” folder as an administrator. Now it should be possible for you to select “mpv” as your default app for video/music formats. You can find a different explanation here.
In the end, the mpv folder should look similar to this:

With mpv on Linux (Manjaro):
Download mpv Media Player with your Pacman-Manager.
Navigate to “~/.config/” and create a folder with the name “mpv”. Copy the two “.conf” files inside that mpv folder.Screenshot_20200215_113509

Other video players:
Almost every libmpv based video player (IINA, mpv.net, Celluloid, …)  supports mpv config files. The setup might work the same as with mpv or you have to activate a special setting in the menu. I recommend reading the documentation for that.


What can I do to improve visual quality?

With mpv you don’t need external tools like madVR or XySubfilter.
Everything that you need is either a simple .hook/.lua file or already included.
I recommend you reading my extended guide.


What are the default keybindings?

mpbindingsNote: My “input.conf” overwrites and adds some bindings.
