I don't need it all the time, I use mpv too, but sometimes
I have a lot of videos I want to watch, but not in alphabetical
order, so I have to reorder them sometimes, and sometimes
I want to move a video in the playlist down because I feel
like watching it later. Sometimes I also want to add new
videos to the playlist.

Forgot to mention that it is preferable if it can playback
videos in faster than normal tempo. But I can work around
this with ffmpeg if necessary.
