My default player is mpv but i still have vlc installed.

I'm a noob with mpv, when it becomes hard to do something i can do in 2min in VLC i just switch. I'm sure I can do everything on mpv I just have more experience with vlc.

I've used VLC before, and it was ok, but I switched to mpv a few months ago and it's been a dream, I just give it a video to play and it just stays out of the way and lets me do what I want to do.

yes, and I like the default interface, no borders and permanent controllers on screen.
