Hello does any know about/or have a
mpv package compiled for 13.04?
I have searched for a PPA without any luck.
No. Seems that you should compile from source the package. There is a pretty straight forward guide (if you want to jump to build the sources skip this section):
Compiling with full features requires development files for several external libraries. Below is a list of some important requirements. For more information see the output of ./configure --help for a list of options, or look at the list of enabled and disabled features printed after running ./configure. If you think you have support for some feature installed but configure fails to detect it, the file config.log may contain information about the reasons for the failure.
Essential dependencies (incomplete list):
Most of the above libraries are available in suitable versions on normal Linux distributions. However FFmpeg is an exception (distro versions may be too old to work at all or work well). For that reason you may want to use the separately available build wrapper (mpv-build) that first compiles FFmpeg libraries and libass, and then compiles the player statically linked against those.
So lets use the helper
As you have read in the previous section, you can use
So, what's the deal:
This is a pretty obscure package, and through the instructions are accurate, sometimes something might not work. Good Luck!
This ppa seems to work (I just tried it): https://launchpad.net/~mc3man/+archive/mpv-tests/
There is also a bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/1208633 and I hope they sync it for Trusty, it really looks promising.
