I need to use mono, is it viable option? Also i wrote mpv.conf, is the symbol - - valid? Do i need all the above?
Remixing audio to mono is probably viable but I would notice the loss of stereo sound and would not using that option myself
the option prefix
-- is needed for terminal or script commands but is not needed If you are making a custom configuration file ~/.config/mpv/mpv.conf
mpv does not have a system configuration file, but it does have an example configuration file /usr/share/doc/mpv/mpv.conf with some of the option settings commented out with #
Ok but do i need all the above options?
I can’t answer to what you need. I suggest you try all the options and use what works and sounds good for you and your system
audio-channels=stereo for audio to stereo speakers and that is usually enough to hear dialog and backing music from the surround sound mix, so I have not tried using additional filters
