        Try another mpv video driver. (default is gpu, which fails for many graphic cards)

        $ mpv --vo=help
        Available video outputs:
          libmpv           render API for libmpv
          gpu              Shader-based GPU Renderer
          gpu-next         Video output based on libplacebo
          vdpau            VDPAU with X11
          wlshm            Wayland SHM video output (software scaling)
          xv               X11/Xv
          sdl              SDL 2.0 Renderer
          dmabuf-wayland   Wayland dmabuf video output
          vaapi            VA API with X11
          x11              X11 (software scaling)
          null             Null video output
          image            Write video frames to image files
          tct              true-color terminals
          caca             libcaca
          drm              Direct Rendering Manager (software scaling)
          sixel            terminal graphics using sixels

        For me e.g. the recent default mpv video driver displays all videos in pink… So try to add
        --vo=xv
        to the line you start the video with. That should help. Then you can make it the default in the ~/.config/mpv/mpv.conf settings file.

        Complete line for your video would be:

        $ mpv --vo=xv 'https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7t5mi3M_lAY'

          Settting video output to “x11” solved the problem but the video is laggy. I will try downloading videos instead of playing them from internet.

          Edit: video quality is way too high (2160p 4K), that’s why it lags.

            You can limit the resolution directly in mpv easily, using the described method.
