Platform-specific information

Linux (Ubuntu)

The version of mpv provided by the Ubuntu repositories is obsolete, and not compatible with Karaoke Mugen.

You must thus install another version. mpv's official site provides several ways to install Karaoke Mugen, but the simplest is for Ubuntu and its derivatives to use the following PPA :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mc3man/mpv-tests
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mpv

Check out mpv's website for more info.


The required mpv version for macOS is 0.25, but to make fullscreen work better, you'll need version 0.27. Install it through your preferred method (macPorts, Homebrew, binaries, etc.)

Raspberry Pi

A version for Raspberry Pi is available through the Mugen Pi Project
