mpv – the best, free and open source media player for Linux systems, recently releases version 0.27.0 which is a maintenance release. This release contains lots of bug fixes and minor enhancements.
From the last review of mpv which was version 0.20.0, there has been a major change I can see in this release with respect to on-screen controls which was introduced in version 0.1.0. The earlier on-screen controls were bigger and positioned almost middle of the video.
Now the controls have been moved to bottom of the window with introduction of newer options and also it gives mpv a different looks.
