After a Tumbleweed update, mpv no longer plays movie files on a samba share
of my NAS drive.
The Tumbleweed version is 20200309.

Opening the movie file from the commandline throws the following error:

$ mpv smb://admin@
[ffmpeg] Protocol not found. Make sure ffmpeg/Libav is compiled with
networking support.
Failed to open smb://admin@

I am using the following versions of ffmpeg and libav* from the Packman
ffmpeg4: 4.2.2-5.2
libavdevice58: 4.2.2-5.2
libavfilter7: 4.2.2-5.2
libavformat58: 4.2.2-5.2
libavresample4: 4.2.2-5.2
libavutil56: 4.2.2-5.2

I have seen a similar complaint on openSUSE forum which describes the exact
same problem:

Does anything change recently on buliding the ffmpeg and/or mpv related

mpv is now using ffmpeg for samba support:
but looks like our ffmpeg is missing samba support. Will look into it.
