Unfortunately I have no idea which versions are being used. It seems that mpv is a moving target, releasing new version every few months. The project recommends to either build from sources, or use third party distro packages instead of official distro packages.

This machine (Debian stable) has 0.23.0, which is relatively new. Well, Debian 9 was released last June.

It looks like that in version 0.17.0 they changed the option from --input-unix-socket to --input-ipc-server


Does your version accept --input-unix-socket?

Of course I could add a check that if version is earlier than 0.17.0, use --input-unix-socket, otherwise go with --input-ipc-server.

I would also be happy for a documentation patch
which, among other things, describes what is the minimum version of mpv
that would work.

This is certainly doable.
