Install MPV Player 0.27 Video Player on Linux Ubuntu

Install MPV Player 0.27 Video player on Linux Ubuntu. MPV is a video player based on MPlayer/mplayer2. It supports a wide variety of video file formats, audio and video codecs, and subtitle types. Generally, mpv should work with the latest release as well as the git version of both FFmpeg and Libav. But FFmpeg is preferred, and some mpv features work with FFmpeg only (subtitle formats in particular).
