MPV supports vapoursynth but is not compiled with it, so the current MPV build does not actually work with it even if it's installed.

Please consider adding vapoursynth as a dependency, as it is needed for --vf=vapoursynth and other things like SVP.

Additional info:
* package version(s)

mpv 1:0.29.1-2
This task depends upon

Hello, I see something similar has been done for sndio. What could be the obstacle here? AFAIK just adding "vapoursynth" to the "depends" array should be sufficient. Is it because vapoursynth is too big, or are there other reasons?

The package vapoursynth is bigger on its own, and it pulls in same more dependencies.
Still unsure about this one.
