Why did you choose OSS4 for sound?
Also, you don't use emails at all?

I like the API, also eliminates the need of PA to play sound from multiple sources.

I do, but i don't use any CLI/TUI application for it.

That's why I also have TECO. No, both are fine for simple config changes.

Why not use mpv at this point? Other than "it has more features so is now more bloated". Purely from a configuration standpoint it is better and is actively being developed.

I'm starting to use mksh a bit more especially on my headless pi's which struggle with my heavier zsh config, but struggling around finding decent documentation, especially surrounding any interactive features, do you have any resources?

Quote:misc: pick (love this one!)

Thanks for this! This will nicely do as a replace to fzf, especially as these sorts of things get distributed as bin files the majority of the time, and therefore don't work on musl distros.

mplayer is simpler for me given my low-requirements:

* less/simpler compile-time dependencies (no libass/shaderc/lua/…)
* no dedicated project just for building it
* no need for configuration at all (so better configuration doesn't matter to me)
* I had experience with remote URL openning fine in mplayer but not mpv (direct links to the video file!)

So I kept using it as it works well for my needs in the end. I don't need/want an API controlled or scriptable video player. And as I compile it myself, the simpler the better.
And mplayer is still actively developped :)

To be fair, I tried to use ffplay instead at some point, but it is just not a media player at all…
