Since the 15.9 release, SMPlayer doesn't exclusively rely on MPlayer :
It supports MPV too !
Description should be updated accordingly.

Moreover, MPlayer isn't even required in the current package :
I think it would be better if mplayer AND mpv were optdepends.

Forcing MPlayer on the user isn't nice since it is arguably worse than MPV...
