GPU-acceleration does not necessarily imply HW-assisted video decoding.
This latter depends heavily on the decoding capabilities of one's CPU
and the video being played. Some CPUs don't do H.265.

I forgot to mention this: it also depends on the decoding library used.
For H.265, you get much better performance if you tell mpv to use libdav1d
instead of libaom (which is what it prefers--but I believe nia@ has
already made this switch in pkgsrc...).
