mpv-rpi: Hardware-accelerated mpv player on the Raspberry Pi

Postby fmang » Wed Sep 14, 2016 10:26 am


I've been using mpv's hardware-accelerated video playback on the Raspberry Pi for a while now, and thought I might as well share my custom packages.

I have uploaded on the AUR the packages mpv-rpi and its dependency ffmpeg-mmal. These two packages are based on the official packages, tweaked for MMAL hardware acceleration support in ffmpeg with --enable-mmal and Raspberry Pi support for mpv with --enable-rpi.

Though ffmpeg takes an hour to build, MMAL support is required for hardware acceleration in mpv. I'm hoping it gets popular enough to get integrated in the official repos, because as it is now, Arch Linux ARM's mpv is hardly useful on the Raspberry Pi and the alternatives are lacking.

Binary packages available at for the impatient.
