I'm not sure what others think, but I believe "mpv" is a must to have on
a current desktop system, so I'd be OK with it provided via the normal OBS
update channel - but it ought to pick up all those libav* packages
provided by Packman to ensure it actually works with today's multimedia
files (such as the .ts file I had problems with when streaming it from
the Dreambox). I'm definitely not deep enough into the features which
are/are not available when packages come from m:a vs. m:l vs. OBS vs.
Packman.  In my experience, the mixture of packages such as "mpv" and
"handbrake" resulted in an unresolvable situation when I last tried it
on Tumbleweed. I'm afraid, with current 42.2 we are in a similar shape.
