Package maintainer's note: This package contains the official Windows builds of mpv. In leiu of shims, mpv.exe and are hardlinked
to chocolatey's bin folder- without in the path, there is no terminal output.
Moreover, a shim of mpv.exe creates a blank terminal window for every video you attempt to open. Hardlinking is therefore necessary for this package.

To install mpv (Portable), run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install mpv.portable --version 2015.12.11

To upgrade mpv (Portable), run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:
