Install Celluloid – formerly GNOME MPV – on Ubuntu Linux

Install Celluloid (formerly GNOME MPV) on Ubuntu Linux Systems. Celluloid (formerly GNOME MPV) is a simple GTK+ frontend for mpv. It aims to be easy to use while maintaining high level of configurability. Celluloid is capable of using mpv’s configuration files as-is. Keybindings can be set up using mpv’s input configuration file.

Celluloid

Celluloid is a simple media player that can play virtually all video and audio formats. It supports playlists and MPRIS2 media player controls. The design of Celluloid follows the GNOME Human Interface Guidelines, but can also be adapted for other systems that don’t use client-side decorations (CSD). It is based on the mpv library and GTK.

Features:

  • Drag and drop playlist
  • Loading external mpv configuration files
  • MPRIS2 D-Bus interface
