If you decided to install/activate the "auto-update" feature during MPlayer for Windows installation, it will periodically check for new updates (every 14 days).

Technically, the auto-updater will run on each system start. But the first things it does is checking whether the update checking period has elapsed yet or not. If not, it will exit immediately. Otherwise it will actually check for new updates.

If and only if a new update was found, the auto-updater will suggest to download and install the new version. Installing the new version still requires confirmation by the user though! None of your files are changed "silently".

(BTW: In case you which to revert your decision and "disable" the auto-updater, just use "msconfig" or Autoruns).

Any reason why MPUI.exe has hijacked the Windows Media Player icon? As well as your SMPlayer, I have it shortcut on the desktop. There is only 1 icon to choose from in MPUI if you want to change it, and it's a rip of the WMP icon. Expected their own short list of original icons.

In the past, I found -vo gl to be sharper, clearer and render the colours better than -vo directx.

I don't know when -vo direct3d was introduced, but it seems to be better than -vo gl. Do you agree? Of the 17 choices, which video output driver is the best?

Windows XP warning: If you are still using Windows XP and you are trying to update via the Auto-Update tool, you probably will experience download errors. The cause of this is that most of our download mirrors (GitHub, Bitbucket, etc) have switched to TLS-only downloads by now – i.e. any plain HTTP request is redirected to HTTPS – but Windows XP only supports outdated TLS cipher-suites that are considered "insecure" and therefore are not allowed by these sites anymore. This will result in a TLS handshake failure on Windows XP systems. There is no way to fix this, except by updating to a less antiquated operating system. Please see here for details!

See answer from "mpv" FAQ:
Quote:
How is mpv related to MPlayer?
The relation between the two projects is mostly historic. They should be considered two separate projects. mpv and MPlayer are different software, incompatible to each other. There is no overlap in developers and other project members between MPlayer and mpv. mpv is not a drop-in replacement for MPlayer, and the command line switches and behavior are different.
MPlayer users should not expect that mpv is in any way similar to it. Both are CLI video players, and have common roots, but in some areas there are radical differences.

Your bundled visions of SMPlayer, MPUI (MPlayer GUI) and MPlayer works find, but I have decided now to uninstall MPlayer For Windows and I'll unsubscribe from this thread.

I did not like SMPlayer and only used it a few times to try out. MPUI I found better with far less bells and whistles and used it only every now an then. Most of my work is done with MPlayer on the command line.

All these programmes you can get individually from Sourceforge.net, and I'll download MPUI and MPlayer form there in the future.

It's also very different, has higher requirements (e.g. no XP support), and removed some things which mplayer probably still supports. It's not "mplayer with few more things", and some people may prefer mplayer in general or for some specific use cases.

Well, because this is an MPlayer distribution package. Maybe MPV could be included as an option, but I would have check the implications.
