Well, you've used this list to talk badly about my software, so I
thought I'd rectify it.

It's a fork, not a clone.

Well, most of the trash-talking was done by yourself. Why are you so
angry about the fact that many (including myself) software developers do
not want to support very old software? I'm sure you understand that
there are limits to what bounds software developers can reasonably
support ancient environments.

Yes, mplayer managed to remain compatible, but then mplayer didn't
receive nearly as much development as mpv did.

And you still didn't tell anyone why you want to use such an old
system, even though I asked several times. I'm very curious about this.
