Hello does any know about/or have a mpv package compiled for 13.04?

I have searched for a PPA without any luck.

Debian offers the mpv package since Jessie, and it's available on testing/unstable, so it should be included in universe repositories, as Ubuntu imports unstable repositories for non-LTS releases, and testing for LTS. Just make sure you have the universe repository enabled, your package lists updated, and run sudo apt-get install mpv.

This ppa seems to work (I just tried it):

There is also a bug and I hope they sync it for Trusty, it really looks promising.

only you cannot set mpv as default to open video files. – sup Nov 13 '13 at 1:35
with gtk-3.10 (trusty), .desktops that contain NoDisplay=true can now show up in Details > default apps.. mpv itself needs a better .desktop than supplied to be available, the ones in my ppa are adjusted for this by adding 2 mimes, 1 for video, 1 for audio (and also extended for DnD on most supported mimetypes. – doug Dec 25 '13 at 18:32
