This is a recreated from the ground up version of godly-devotion's Baka-MPlayer. By developing this version in Qt5, we can in the future distribute this to the existing users and to more users on different operating systems.

Linux Users


I've put the PKGBUILD in the AUR; I've developed this on ArchLinux so you should have no problems (except if your mpv version is incompatible, I'll be working with the mpv creators to fix any issues that do arise).

Other Linux

You'll have to download the source and get it compiled by following the simple directions in the file.

Windows Users

Sorry; you'll have to anticipate the Beta Release when we hope to have Windows Compilation and support ready.

Mac OS X

There is no support as of this moment for Mac OS X; this is mostly because I do not have access to a Mac OS X computer nor do I want to have access to one--frankly. But I'd gladly work with anyone on such a system to extend support.

Contact Us

If you would like to get in touch with the developers, you can contact us via email, this (issue submission, etc..), or our IRC Channel on freenode #baka-mplayer where I will be if I am available.
