When i do:
it responds with:
mpv 0.23.0 (C) 2000-2016 mpv/MPlayer/mplayer2 projects
built on UNKNOWN
ffmpeg library versions:
ffmpeg version: 3.2.2-2
I did not install ffmpeg explicitly, but when i installed mpv it
picked up a bunch of other packages.
(For reference, i did install some other sound packages centered
around sox and sndfile, but i'm guessing these are irrelevant.)

The mpv website recommends building your own or using a 3rd party
builds instead of relying on a package. ("Distributions usually
package outdated, unmaintained, and unsupported versions of mpv. This
is especially true for popular distros like Debian and Ubuntu. You are
recommended to use mpv-build or 3rd party packages instead.") That's
all in https://mpv.io/installation/
However, despite using both debian and ubuntu, i've never had to do
that yet. knock on wood! :)
But if you do install something from mpv.io, and it works better for
jessie, please post and tia!
