Compile mpv player for Ubuntu from source.

mpv is the default player for latest smplayer. Since mplayer didnt work after compiling its latest version from source (see my previous post), I decided to recompile mpv.


git clone
cd mpv-build/
sudo apt install libfribidi-dev libfribidi-bin yasm
./rebuild -j4
sudo ./install

Note: There may be other dependencies.
Thus I upgraded my mpv 0.14.0 to 0.25.0-26-gde225e3.
