MPV 0.23.0 Open-Source Video Player Released, Requires at Least FFmpeg 3.2.2

MPV is an MPlayer-based multimedia player that looks to gain a lot of ground lately and become the go-to video player for many computer users, no matter the operating system used. MPV 0.23.0 is the latest version of the application, arriving five weeks after the release of the 0.22.0 update. The biggest change in the MPV 0.23.0 release is the upgrade of the FFmpeg multimedia backend dependency to version 3.2.2, the latest in the FFmpeg 3.2 “Hypatia” stable series, which could mean trouble for various Linux-based operating system, such as Solus, which doesn’t include up-to-date FFmpeg packages.
