I’m very happy to announce that the next version of SMPlayer will support MPV.
I’m currently adding support for MPV, it’s not an easy task, since every single command has to be reimplemented, so it’s a slow process.
At this point the basic functions (play, pause, seek, etc.) and most of the options in the menus “Play”, “Video”, “Audio” and “Subtitles” work.

There’s no public version available yet, but a beta will probably be available soon.
