    MPV - Made Easy! (Moodkiller Edition) X Synopsis: The MPC version for MPV. Seen as MPC is no long in active development (based from the original thread date), MPV is becoming, and should have become, your go to player. Below is the personal player configuration I use. Its a mixture of one of the stock standard gui releases with some userscripts that have been tweaked. This is based as closely as possible on how MPC used to run in terms of shortcut keys and functionality. You should feel right at home, but up to date. Feature List: Similar feel and behaviour to MPC-HC (shortcut keys and mouse buttons) : a - Toggles audio track. s - Toggles subtitle track. Spacebar - Toggle pause. Mouse right-click - Toggle pause. Mouse side-buttons (if applicable) - Skip through chapter markers. Left/Right arrow keys - Seek ~10 seconds forward/backwards Up/Down arrow keys & Mouse wheel - Increase/decrease volume by 5 Shift+S - Take screenshots (with subtitles). Ctrl+o - Full-featured open file box. Ctrl+g - Go to a specified timestamp. Screen-shots are placed in the root videos directory under a new folder called "Screens". Seek bar thumbnail preview. Visualiser for audio tracks. Remember video position of previous played file (video/audio). Lightweight (no heavy filters or extra filters). Adjusted OSC (On Screen Controller) have a smaller footprint and be more practical. Play next sequential file in the current files folder. YouTube link player (drag and drop only) More as I remember them... Installation: One of the nicest features of MPV is that it requires no installation and can be run from its own folder (portable). Clone or download this repo. Unzip to your desired location. Run updater.bat (this will download the latest MPV GUI build from the source stated below and youtube-dl if you pressed 'y' when prompted). Optional: Run installer/mpv-install.bat as administrator to set file associations. Hexchat Integration: Hexchats latest version (2.14.1) doesn't have any built in "now playing" plugins to use. And as of this version, the default MPC-HC "now-playing" script doesn't function. I have included a modified version of an MPV now playing script from github user, FichteFoll, in this pack. A prerequisite, Python 3.6 needs to be enabled/selected when you install Hexchat. If you have Hexchat already installed, no problem, just re-run the installer and choose Python 3.x from the Custom Installation screen (right at the bottom). Right-click and copy the file 'mpv_np.py' (located in 'Hexchat plugin') from the downloaded pack. Press the Windows key+R and type '%APPDATA%\HexChat' and press enter. Paste the copied file into the 'addons' folder. In Hexchat go to Window > Plugins and Scripts > Load and browse to your addons folder where you pasted 'mpv_np.py'. Normally this is 'C:\Users\moodkiller\AppData\Roaming\HexChat\addons' You should get confirmation to say the plugin has been loaded successfully. Type /mpv in any window while playing a file in MPV and it should spit out something like "*Moodkiller is playing: [MK] Kiznaiver - 01 [BD 1080p][Hi10][Dual-Audio][05856FFC].mkv ◘ 1.945 GiB ◘ [00:04:05 / 00:24:03] in mpv 0.28.0-437-g9efb0278e7" (with colour formatting). Resources: GUI build: https://sourceforge.net/projects/mpv-player-windows/files/ Collection of user scripts: https://github.com/mpv-player/mpv/wiki/User-Scripts MPV properties page: https://mpv.io/manual/master/#synopsis Thanks goes to all those involved for testing and their inputs for getting stuff running. Feedback welcomed. Github repository: MPV-Made-Easy

    I prefer the convenience and versatility of digital, but I by far prefer the quality that comes with purchasing something physically as well as the ability to use it in the future. That said, I usually rip things and put the original into storage. It's difficult enjoying physical goods while also wanting a clutter-free living environment. My position has become more nuanced over the years. I get my comics digitally because it's massively convenient and spilling anything on a real comic would kill me inside, but by the same token the experiences won't really be "even" until full-color eInk readers capable of handling splash pages at proper resolution are available. That said, I still choose to read them on my monitor over physically. With novels I resisted the transition for as long as I could, but my girlfriend gave me a Kindle and it's grown on me. Books were always the most cumbersome addition to my collection, having no uniform dimensions and occupying immense shelfspace. With video games I prefer backups and emulation wherever possible--primarily because I've lost too many old cartridges and discs to wear and tear (and I'm pretty careful). Unlike most other media, games are also usually locked to specific devices that I don't trust to be in working condition decades down the line. That said, I don't like the risk of games distribution platform either going belly up or revoking my ability to play that game. I vastly prefer DRM-free purchases over either option. When it comes to modern games, I buy them on Steam or GOG if they aren't console exclusive. Console games I buy physically. With multiplatform games it seems so many of them are loaded with Day One mandatory patches that I probably don't own the game, disc or not--so I might as well get the version which will survive hardware upgrades instead of being ecosystem locked (although Steam recently deciding to cut out XP and Vista users is making me rethink that). Movies and music I rip and stash the discs away without a second thought. The ability to curate those collections into playlists and channels via PseudoTV is invaluable to me. I will never return to the era of fetching a disc and plunking it in the machine at the moment I choose to watch something. Ultimately all solutions of preservation are equally impractical for a variety of reasons. DRM-free digital seems to me to be the best solution in the long run. Though, I will say that I spend far too much time "organizing" my collection. Oh well. I'm a librarian at heart.

    Well, my rescue I have a back up of. It's the Advair I'm running out on, and without insurance that's about $350 x.x; Some people have suggested I can import them from Canada more cheaply, so I'm looking into that

    I wish the reactions included a "camaraderie" emoji, or something better than "Like" to express "I know that feels, thanks man." I've only got ten doses of my controller left at the moment and don't have health insurance, so I'm facing a pretty scary world in a little over a week. I'm glad somebody gets where I'm coming from. Wish you all the best in your future battle with it as well.

    The site already has a section for live action content (though only obscure and young audience shows are permitted) and a section for OSTs (though it is locked behind the VIP section, and also includes manga and comics). With this suggestion, it would probably be best to merge with the OSt,comics, and manga section in the VIP area, if it is added and it could be used for stuff like Light Novels, since that is one of the source materials for anime, like SAO, Baccano, Durarara, Haruhi Suzumiya, Full Metal Panic, etc..

    I know how you feel bud. I have asthma as well and it's scary to think that your life is in the hands of a small inhaler. I get asthma attacks every night and it's just not something you want to deal with. The thought of not waking up or getting an attack that needs medical attention is a fear I know too well.

    I just stumble upon it out of nowhere. I wish someone told me sooner.
