Hi Mihai,

I noticed these messages during installation of port mpv:

--->  Activating mpv @0.22.0_2+audiocd+bundle+dvd+libarchive+network+opengl+osd+python27+rubberband

The maintainer ships his personal config file in
* /opt/local/share/examples/mpv/config-maintainer.

You are strongly encouraged to copy this file to either
* /opt/local/etc/mpv/mpv.conf (globally for all users of the system) or
* ~/.mpv/config (only for your current user)
and adjust it to your needs.
This config file already defines the necessary video output settings to make use of the hardware acceleration features provided by your operating system.

--->  Cleaning mpv

In there /opt/local/share/examples/mpv/config-maintainer is referred to,
but in fact that file isn’t to be found there, but at


i.e. you’re missing the "/doc/mpv” bit in there…


Apart from that I ran into this:
$ mpv foo.mp4 
--vo=opengl-hq is deprecated! Use --profile=opengl-hq instead.
Playing: foo.mp4
 (+) Video --vid=1 (*) (h264)
 (+) Audio --aid=1 --alang=und (*) (aac)
[vo/opengl] Using suboptions is deprecated. Use the global '--opengl-backend' option instead of 'backend' suboption.
[vo/opengl] error creating CGL context: invalid pixel format (10002)
Error opening/initializing the selected video_out (-vo) device.
Video: no video

Exiting... (Errors when loading file)

Any ideas what all that means?
