For ease of compiling the latest git master of everything, you may wish to use the separately available build wrapper (mpv-build) which first compiles FFmpeg libraries and libass, and then compiles the player statically linked against those. Currently using windows, but moving everything over to Ubuntu soon. I'm trying to fully capture a MPV window & stream it to an RTMP server. I want to use a video player rather than ffmpeg's restream ability so I can, on the fly, control playback, enable & disable things such as subtitles etc.

If you want bleeding edge functionality, link against git versions of FFmpeg or if a package for your platform is not available or updated, you can build mpv from source code. The helper build scripts are recommended for most users since they perform a static build of FFmpeg and libass as well as mpv.

Distributions usually package outdated, unmaintained, and unsupported versions of mpv.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 third-party packages instead. All of these packages are unofficial.
