I am on OS X and set mpv as default player for all media types, including video and audio. One annoyance I encounter is that the mpv.app playing audio does not any UI. There are no controls and no progress bar. Could this be improved?

I think this should be the default too. In the meantime, you can put:

profile=pseudo-gui
In your mpv.conf. Is that the behavior you expected?

I added that to the config file

echo 'profile=pseudo-gui' >> ~/.config/mpv/mpv.conf

And nothing changed.

To be clear, there is an app icon on the dock that allows me to issue keyboard commands, but that is the behavior since the last revision. What I want is to see a slider to know how much of the music is left, and be able to drag the slider, as when viewing video with mpv.

Hmm, weird. It works as expected in GNU/Linux:

mpv as music player

Does it work when you compile the new mpv master?

The pseudo-gui profile is a recent addition, are you using the HEAD or the release version (0.8.3)? In the latter case pseudo-gui will not be recognized as an option, just add force-window to your config file to achieve pretty much the same outcome.

The works as expected now after I installed the HEAD version instead of release.

It sucks when you can not stop playback or move forward in an audio!
I have looping by default so the playback never end. Not sure why i need to waste time asking at forums to get reply from someone linking me to github, where i need to apply some workaroudn via command line. It is a nonsense to hide the player.
This is one of the small things why people turn away from Linux!

@slrslr you're commenting on an issue from 2015 that is no longer even relevant. The pseudo-gui mode is default when launched from any desktop environment, e.g. by double-clicking a file.
