qimgv – Qt5 image viewer with video support

qimgv is a Qt5 image viewer. It’s fast, configurable, and easy to use. It offers video support via libmpv.

The idea of qimgv is to have a uncluttered, simple and easy to use user interface (UI). You can see UI elements only when you need them.

There is a pull-down panel with thumbnails, as well as folder view (accessible by pressing Return).

You can also bring up a context menu by right-clicking an image.

  • Simple user interface.
  • Fast.
  • Easy to use.
  • Fully configurable, including shortcuts.
  • Zoom in and out with configurable zoom step.

  • Experimental video playback via libmpv. The software can play WebM and MP4 formats.
