stretch, mpv runs, but has only a drop a file on it to play, no menu to 
go looking for a file. The usual drag copy to highlight the name, then a 
MMB paste to its screen doesn't work, so how do I play it? What a 
screwup this is.

... I finally made it work from the command line by enclosing the 
filename in dbl-quotes. Otherwise it try's to open each word in the 
windows style filename which is full of spaces.

Crazy, and it sure as tootin isn't an operating improvement, nothing 
points me to mpv to play an mp4. mpv does have one, I just found it 
thank you Mike, but there ought to be an alias setup that gets you mpv's 
man page when you type man mp4, and get nothing.  'scuse the rant, but 
I've been poking at this for days.

Thanks Mike.

Cheers, Gene Heskett
