You need to disable the internal smplayer youtube support and only enable the mpv streaming support in the network section in the preferences.

I did already. Did you get 1080p with Smplayer on Youtube using the option ytdl-format=best,bestvideo+bestaudio? I did only with mpv directly, but with Smplayer always get only 720p (but with ytdl-format=bestvideo+bestaudio on Smplayer I get 1080p, only that it gets error on other sites), so basically on my Smplayer "ytdl-format=best,bestvideo+bestaudio" is the same as "ytdl-format=best" Smplayer 14.90 svn r6690 on Ubuntu Linux.

EDITED: Works now! After removing ~/.config/Smplayer and reseting my preferences it works just like you said. :D

The correct format is:

Code: Select all

(I edited my previous post accordingly.)

A slash (/) must be used to specify alternatives. Using a comma has a different meaning altogether: it fetches ALL those formats. It's just that mpv would then play the last ones, that's why it appeared to work in reverse order.

Anyway, long story short, use a slash to specify alternative fallbacks in the correct order.
