Changed my mind. However it doesn't happen on Intel with modesetting driver, so you should probably report it to nouveau devs.

Yes, mpv owner said this should be due to nouveau, and changing from nouveau to nvidia driver seems to have solved the issue.
I have to see if I can find an older nouveau version where the problem doesn't happen so I could report to them, but this bug report pertaining to mpv can be closed I think.

Have you reported this to the Nouveau devs? Does it still happen to fail?
