  • Portable (*.portable/*.commandline (deprecated naming convention)/*.tool (deprecated naming convention)) - usually zips or archives that require no administrative access to install.
  • Install (*.install/*.app (deprecated naming convention)) - uses native installers, usually requires administrative access to install.

Package Approved

This package was approved as a trusted package on 27 Mar 2023.


Maintainer Note

What's the difference between this package and mpvio? None, but this package is stuck following a now defunct version scheme of mpv.
Why does the mpv package use a different version than the official project? Long ago, the Windows builds of mpv were provided by a contributor who made Windows specific changes to mpv. Since the chocolatey package was following that specific build, it made sense (at the time) to mirror that build's version scheme.


a free, open source, and cross-platform media player


mpv is a free (as in freedom) media player for the command line. It supports a wide variety of media file formats, audio and video codecs, and subtitle types.


Powerful scripting capabilities can make the player do almost anything. There is a large selection of user scripts on the wiki.

On Screen Controller

While mpv strives for minimalism and provides no real GUI, it has a small controller on top of the video for basic control.

High quality video output

mpv has an OpenGL, Vulkan, and D3D11 based video output that is capable of many features loved by videophiles, such as video scaling with popular high quality algorithms, color management, frame timing, interpolation, HDR, and more.

GPU video decoding

mpv can leverage most hardware decoding APIs on all platforms. Hardware decoding can be enabled at runtime on demand.


A straightforward C API was designed from the ground up to make mpv usable as a library and facilitate easy integration into other applications.

Active development

mpv is under active development, focusing on code refactoring and cleanups as well as adding features. Want a feature? Post a patch or request it!

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
