multimedia:apps is a devel project for at least a few apps in Factory.
Its certainly ok to have its Leap repo enabled. But the downside is that
multimedia:apps builds against multimedia:libs, which in turn is also
a devel project. Soon it will happen that ffmpeg gets new SONAMEs and
mpv will stop working because it links against OBS.

There will be always some conflict between "having the latest" and
"having a consistent system". The idea was to provide updates via the
42.2:Update project. In the case of mpv itself it might be ok to build
it unconditionally in PMBS for all repos. A few packages have
Requires: mpv (Essentials/baka-mplayer, Essentials/smplayer,
Multimedia/selene, Multimedia/xt7-player-mpv).

So what should be done with mpv? Provide always the variant from
multimedia:apps via PMBS (linked against the given ffmpeg from PMBS),
or should mpv be updated as needed via the Update channel?
