Yes, it is.

MPlayer has less dependencies and also I tested both mpv and mplayer at
hardware which didn't have 2D acceleration. That was terrible, mpv
tried to put every frame at screen, so giving 1 minute video to mpv made
video last 6 minutes, but it could play all audio in 1 minute, so I
didn't hear any sound last 5 minutes. I didn't notice the same problem
at mplayer, it played as much frames as possible in 1 minute. Maybe I
should read mpv's man page, but I like when everything works by default.
