Just installed MPV .
and i want a shortcut key/hotkey for automatically pausing the playing media and minimizing it to the shortcut.
In windows KMPLAYER had it by defauly
and previously VLC had that feature “BOSS KEY”
but cant find that in MPV
anyone can help in that ?
You cold copy the
/usr/share/doc/mpv/input.conf file to your
~/.config/mpv folder and edit it to your liking.
Also, you might want to edit your
mpv.conf file like the screenshot below. But you decide how you want things.
By default, screenshots are set to ‘S’.
Here’s the text in case you’d like to copy and paste it:
WHEEL_UP add volume 5
WHEEL_DOWN add volume -5
shift+s screenshot each-frame
All of this and a lot more can be found at https://mpv.io/manual/stable/
can you say for
automatically pausing and minimizing in the taskbar ? through ESC
The settings I pasted are the only settings I need, so I don’t know. You’ll have to scan the manual for that.
Also, I run MPV through Celluloid - it’s nicer-looking and provides some GUI settings, particularly a setting that allows me to link to and use my MPV settings.
But there are other MPV-based apps you can try as well.
