Bug Description

A support request had me explore `gnome-mpv` on lubuntu 18.04.4 (i386)

I used the recent (RC) install media; and it crashes there too :(

I've tried this on a couple of boxes; occurs on each. It also occurs on a recent 18.04.4 QA-install too (hp dx6120mt; the install was kubuntu 18.04.4 where I added lubuntu-desktop. On the installed (dx6120) box when using KDE OR LXDE, `gnome-mpv` opens and sits there without issue (why it possibly wasn't noticed earlier), but crashes when a file is selected.

On normal 'live' tests programs are only opened & then closed (no files opened usually) thus why noticed so late. It maybe specific to type of files opened, but all files tried caused `gnome-mpv` to crash (i usually resorted to opening gnome-mpv from terminal as far quicker in testing files instead of navigating with gui).

I tested the same thing on amd64 and didn't have an issue there (unless it's box specific)

Failed on
dell latitude d610 (pentium m, 1.5gb, intel i915) - i386
hp dx6120mt (mini-tower, pentium 4 dual core, 3gb, winfast clone of nvidia 7600gt) - i386
ibm thinkpad t43 (pentium m, 1.5gb ram, radeon x300) - i386

No issue on
hp dc7700 (c2d-e6320, 5gb, nvidia quadro nvs 290) - amd64
