# mpvc: remote control for a long-running mpv process

This is what I use as a media player nowadays.
To launch the long-running mpv, run `mpvc launch_mpv`.
Typically I do that from a runit service, so the mpv runs from startup
to shutdown.

Commands are poorly documented.  I use `click` for building the
interface, so it is at least fairly discoverable.

# Dependencies

* Python 3.6+
* [click](http://click.pocoo.org/).  This is widely available in distros and ports trees.  See its [page on repology.org](https://repology.org/project/python:click/versions) if you need help finding it.
