I think libavformat >= 56.01.0 is needed.

bomi currently can only by build with the in-tree mpv library. It turns out this library doesn't place nice with our version of GCC. We can come back to this if they ever fix it or less us use a system mpv library.

I would really, really like to see Bomi in Solus too. The development has been slow lately, but the player is still far better than anything else I have tried so far, including other mpv GUIs. The interface, features and ergonomy are just amazing and still wrapped in a very minimalistic package. Development will resume soon according to the dev.
