I have been using the mpv back end for a while and after an update to mpv, gmusicbrowser
does not show it as a valid back end anymore.

After some digging I found out that the version number string changed from
mpv 0.9.2 (C) 2000-2015 mpv/MPlayer/mplayer2 projects to mpv git-f1778d1 (C) 2000-2015 mpv/MPlayer/mplayer2 projects

As a temporary fix I added the following to my local copy

$ok = $output=~m/mpv\s*git/i ? 1 : $ok;

to's check_version function which gets everything working again but is probably not the best solution.

gmusicbrowser version: v1.1.15
OS: Arch Linux
