Currently there is only mpv version 0.3.11 availabe in Funtoo, higher versions have been masked because they require a masked version of libav.

This guide directly starts with using dracut. I think it's better to rewrite it with generic ideas how to build custom kernel, without initrd, and then with different initramfs creation tools.

However if you use media-video/ffmpeg you can safely unmask it for virtual/ffmpeg

mpv is a fork of mplayer2, to learn more about the differences take a look at their docs.

Currently there is only mpv version 0.3.11 availabe in Funtoo, higher versions have been masked because they require a masked version of libav.

Note

Read the mpv wiki to unstand ffmpeg vs libav especially in regard to mpv. If you are interested you might even read the article The FFmpeg/Libav situation

However if you use media-video/ffmpeg you can safely unmask it for virtual/ffmpeg

To learn more about unmasking packages, and making sure you really want to do this, take a look at the article on the Gentoo wiki.
