The Manjaro updates on 2020-12-30 broke this for me but I was able to fix it by rebuilding plex-mpv-shim as well as python-mpv (in case anyone else runs into the same issues)

It does work, All you have to do is run plex-mpv-shim, and then choose it as a cast target in Plex like you would any other player.

So, is there supposed to be GUI with this? Also, is this supposed to work?

Because it doesn't for either of those things. Obviously with no .desktop file all I can do is run plex-mpv-shim from the terminal, and then there's some output (with no errors) and nothing happens.

Thanks @kruzah, done!

I've added the mpv-shim-default-shaders package, which contains the default shaders that are supported by plex-mpv-shim and jellyfin-mpv-shim in the latest releases. You can add this as an optdepend to your package and symlink default_shader_pack to its directory and it should work for plex-mpv-shim as well. Feel free to refer to the pkgbuild of jellyfin-mpv-shim where I've implemented this if you need guidance.
