As of this commit (first in 0.29.0), mpv dropped support for xdg-shell
v6 and now only supports the stable version of xdg-shell:

Unfortunately Weston doesn't support stable xdg-shell yet. I have a
feeling that currently mutter is the only compositor which does
(although I may be wrong).

There is an upstream mpv bug about this which hasn't seen any activity.
I'll poke it and see what upstream has to say, but I doubt they're going
to reintroduce xdg-shell v6 support.
