Is there a mp4 player on linux than can play in mini view like w10? VLC got a limit on how small the windows is allowed

    Check this out

    I don't know the complete set of feature because this is in pre-alpha stage... But you can make some changes and make it work...

    I personally use mpv, doesn't seem to have any limits on size.

    you could always use your terminal, mplayer will do mp4 according to the description, then you've got over half a dozen more to choose from if you want to convert them to mp3.

    Maybe using ffmpeg could do the trick? Not sure if I mixed up with another command though...

    Opera has a pull out window for movies so if your streaming, opera is good choice.

    @ohemelaar to play the mp4 or to convert it to something else? It seemed like it was the latter, but I can't remember either at the moment.

    I only looked into them because I had finally decided to try and do something with 50gigs worth of music I've been carrying around in a spare drive for 10+ years.

    Quite a bit of it was from the days of napster and limewire and having formatted it all to work on an ipod I had way back when, I've been a bit paranoid about adding it to my itunes account. Was thinking of moving them to a small command line virtual box and using it strictly for a music player.

    VLC is open source. It would probably be relatively simple to add a way to change the minimum size

    @AlgoRythm I have no idea where to start and my field is js on browser

    @devTea We could use QT, as I understand, they have MP4 support. As long as you're using MP4 files on your hard drive and not streaming, it may be a one-day thing.

    It's 3:30 in the morning I'll look into it tomorrow

    @AlgoRythm the mpv suggested by @infernalempress works, thanks

    @M1sf3t Now that I think about it it might be called ffplay. I used it to make an alias that would play the MGS "Alert" sound, so I assumed it could play videos as well.

    Would make a great vscode extension you could open up your playlists in the file editor have auto complete from your music files also able you tube links with a video/song info panel and play/skip song in the status area, maybe Dropbox/skydrive integration if you want your collection available as you work on different computers
