I wanna have controls just like I have when playing a video file in mpv. Is there a way to do it ?

I tried for e.g.

$ mpv --fullscreen music.mp3

but didn't get anything which works.

I even tried mpv --list-options to see if there is something that I missed but came up empty.

Looking forward for guidance.


the answer is

$ mpv --force-window $file.mp3

I have just taken .mp3 an an example filetype or format type and $file for an example file. Just put the filename and the filetype as it is instead of the fictious example shared above.
