The Cocoa output won't work on 10.6, as advertised in the notes.
Instead, make sure XQuartz is installed (either via the package installer
or via MacPorts) and `mpv` has been built with at least the variant
`+x11`, better also include `+opengl`, so from my perspective at least
`+x11+opengl`. Then, spawn `mpv` like that: `mpv --vo=opengl --profile
=opengl-hq --opengl-backend=x11`. If that works, great. Create or edit
`~/.mpv/config` and feel free to add
I cannot help you with Homebrew. I do not use it. The `mpv` versions in
MacPorts and Homebrew likely differ - for instance, one might be newer
than the other or compiled in a different way/with different features. The
`mpv` version in MacPorts should support `--opengl-backend` if built with
the `x11` and `opengl` variants.

btw, I have noticed that some ports that specify they only build on i386
and x86_64 will actually build on ppc -- the portfile author may have not
tested it on ppc, so just disabled it.
If you're going to work on 10.5 PPC, you'll need to be comfortable editing
portfiles and changing a few things. in this case, I'd edit the rubberband
sudo vi `port file rubberband`
and find the supported_archs line, and comment it out. Then try to build
rubberband and see what happens. You might be surprised.
Hm, for some reason `ffmpeg` was rebuilt after `mpv`. I don't know what
you did, but I bumped the port a day after the `ffmpeg` port was updated,
which should have been enough to ensure the correct order.
Anyway, you'll have to rebuild `mpv`. Just execute:
