Yes, the older interface is one of the reasons this package exists; I think it can be restored even in the community version by tweaking the osd configuration files; but why lose time to do it!

One of the main reasons of this package is that the newer mpv versions have a problem with audio randomly jumping backwards sometimes, on older or slower machines. But the mpv developer has expressed on github that they do not have interest in supporting niche configurations (like my older computer or my ARM board are), so...

But I've also experienced random breakage with random features over time, and I just got tired of it. So here it is, an mpv version that's almost frozen in time, when things were working perfectly fine here.

It has the much nicer "old" pseudo-gui with back-forward buttons that work fine (unlike those of the community mpv 1:0.23.0-1)
