gnu: mpv: Update to 0.28.0.
* gnu/packages/video.scm (mpv): Update to 0.28.0.
[inputs]: Change ffmpeg to ffmpeg-git, add wayland-protocols.
As a frequent user of mpv, I also noticed that its latest release
requires this unreleased branch of FFmpeg (it will eventually be
released as FFmpeg 3.5).
I wonder, does mpv 0.28.0 bring some new features that make it worth it
to build three copies of FFmpeg? There was already ffmpeg-2.8 and
***@3.4.1 (the latest upstream release). And, do we know if this copy
of FFmpeg is ready to be deployed?
If I remember correctly, FFmpeg is pretty expensive to build from
source. But maybe it's no big deal, or the new features are worth it. Or
maybe we should replace ***@3.4.1 with this unreleased development
