In the downloads page, it says that SE should run with mono under Linux and that one should use mpv-lib for video playback. It is not clear how to do that at all though.
Video settings are all greyed out (see screenshot).

Downloading MPV does not seem to do anything (it justs asks me about output, see screenshot).

When I try to play a video, it complains it cannot start mplayer and then throws an error message at me (see screenshot).

I am on Ubuntu 16.04 64bit with mono-complete installled. Are there any other requirements or can I somehow edit settings manually?

I think so:

$locate libmpv
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libmpv.so.1
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libmpv.so.1.23.0
/usr/share/doc/libmpv1
/usr/share/doc/libmpv1/changelog.Debian.gz
/usr/share/doc/libmpv1/copyright
/var/lib/dpkg/info/libmpv1:amd64.list
/var/lib/dpkg/info/libmpv1:amd64.md5sums
/var/lib/dpkg/info/libmpv1:amd64.shlibs
/var/lib/dpkg/info/libmpv1:amd64.symbols
/var/lib/dpkg/info/libmpv1:amd64.triggers`

Or how else would I check? I installed mpv from tihs ppa: https://launchpad.net/~mc3man/+archive/ubuntu/mpv-tests

I'm also on Ubuntu 16.04, and I'm having the exact same issue.

There are no options available under Video engine, despite having MPV and VLC installed.

Furthermore, I tested SE in Windows 7 (64bit), and I found that VLC works, and MPV can be downloaded, but doesn't work regardless of the output selected.

Same for me on Fedora 26. Libmpv is installed, but I can't select it as the video player.

Hi,

@felagund @whitemarvin @maddovr @Kzer-Za @niksedk

I fixed this by creating a symlink libmpv.so --> libmpv.so.1
Seems that the app is looking for libmpv.so only, and there is just libmpv.so.1 and libmpv.so.1.23.0 etc.
I hope it will work for others as well :)

Wonderful. On my Ubuntu system, it was

cd /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ ; sudo ln -s libmpv.so.1 libmpv.so

But this is a workaround, Subtitle Edit should be smarter than that on its own.
