    Just open terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run following command to add the PPA. And new MPV packages will be available in Software Updater after the maintainer updating the PPA.

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mc3man/mpv-tests

    Type user password (Ctrl+Alt+T) when it prompts and hit Enter to continue.

    To remove the PPA, either open Software & Updates and remove the repository line from ‘Other Software’ tab,

    or run previous command with --remove flag:

    sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:mc3man/mpv-tests
