Source code

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.

Linux packages

Distributions usually package outdated, unmaintained, and unsupported versions of mpv.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.
