opening in mpv. What should I do to make this work?

I can't reproduce this (as it happens, I have both youtube-viewer and mpv installed in my regular profile):

============================ Terminal Time ============================= ~ λ grep video_player_selected .config/youtube-viewer/youtube-viewer.conf
 video_player_selected => "mpv",

Are both youtube-viewer and mpv installed to the same profile? Which profile is that? Could you try the command

guix environment --pure --ad-hoc youtube-viewer mpv -- youtube-viewer

to see if removing any possible sources of confusion helps? (That command also works for me, but I don't *need* it.)

I'm also a bit confused by your phrasing, ‘under preferences…’ and ‘…click play’. For me, youtube-viewer is a CLI tool and I've always used it as such. Are you saying there's a gooey?

Kind regards,
