Bomi 0.9.11

Bomi is a graphical user interface (GUI) player based on MPV, a fork of MPlayer/MPlayer2. Bomi aims to provide a simple, yet effective, frontend for the MVP command-line media player. By taking advantage of the MVP Windows GUI, Bomi offers all the features that you would expect from a modern media player, such as Hardware-accelerated decoding, audio-video synchronization, seeking by subtitle, audio amplification, volume normalization, and more. It also comes with System tray support, and a customizable interface by using skins.

An interesting feature of Bomi is the real-time frame rate conversion aka 'Motion Smoothing' by interpolating 30fps video to 60 fps on-the-fly. Motion interpolation or Soap Opera Effect is a feature available in shareware programs like Mirillis Splash PRO (Picture²), and more recently in a free, but heavyweight piece of software - SmoothVideo Project. It is also called frame interpolation, motion interpolation, or Frame Doubling Interpolation. The goal of Motion Smoothing is to give a more life-like picture. It is called Soap Opera Effect, because it looks similar to how soap opera shows looked historically, having been shot at 60 interlaced fields per second.

Acting like a real SmoothVideo Project alternative but without having to install any other codec pack or bulky runtimes, Bomi increases the frame rate by generating intermediate animation frames between existing ones. It's like those high-end TVs you see with fluid and clear motion. Enabling the Frame Doubling Interpolation feature in Bomi is relatively easy - during the video playback, right-click on the main window of Bomi and from the drop-down menu select Video> Motion Smoothing (make sure that's ticked). To check that the real-time frame conversion is working, just re-open to the drop-down menu, and select Tools>Playback Information.
