bomi: another mpv frontend


mpv is a stable fork of mplayer under active development. mpv’s own GUI looks pretty well but is not very feature rich.As you might expect, SMPlayer works with mpv too and there’s nothing to complain. However, if you want to experiment with another frontend, try bomi.


  • User-friendly GUI, skinnable
  • Unlimited playback history
  • Automatic playlist generation and restoration
  • Enhanced subtitle-handling (can handle multiple at a time)
  • GPU-accelerated rendering (can use available native API for the system between VA-API and VDPAU)
  • Customizable shortcuts

bomi was being developed as CMPlayer earlier. It already has a lot of capabilities found in SMPlayer. Check out the full list of features.


To install bomi on Ubuntu, run:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:darklin20/bomi
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install bomi
