Baka MPlayer User Manual
Baka MPlayer is a free and open source, cross-platform, libmpv based multimedia player. Its simple design reflects the idea for an uncluttered, simple, and enjoyable environment for watching tv shows.
The playlist is automatically populated by loading the files in the directory of the loaded file. If a folder is opened by drag and dropping it, the files in the immediate folder directory will be automatically populated (not including subdirectories).
Using a mouse or a touch screen, you can click and drag on the video to change playback. Clicking and dragging left/right will seek backwards/forwards. Clicking and dragging up/down will increase/decrease volume. Gesture support can be disabled under Preferences if desired.
The screenshot template is passed into mpv as
screenshot-template (see mpv's manual for more info). If the screenshot dialog is hidden by unchecking the
Always show this dialog option, the dialog can be restored by setting
baka-mplayer/screenshotDialog to true in the settings file.
Your recently viewed files are stored in settings for easy access. It is located at the bottom of the file under

[baka-mplayer] -> maxRecent value and the list will trim itself accordingly.
