No, should be checked in emms-player-mpv-debug-msg calls, so enabling it
anytime and doing anything mpv-related should produce some output there.
As it does not, guess player backend from emms-player-mpv never runs,
so guess it should be an issue elsewhere.

emms-player-mpv-ipc-method should not be t, it is defined as:
(defcustom emms-player-mpv-ipc-method nil
"Switch for which IPC method to use with mpv.
Possible symbols: detect, ipc-server, unix-socket, file.
Defaults to nil value, which will cause `emms-player-mpv-ipc-detect'
to pick one based on mpv --version output.
Using JSON-IPC variants (ipc-server and unix-socket) enables
support for various feedback and metadata options from mpv."
(const :tag "Auto-detect from mpv --version" nil)
(const :tag "Use --input-ipc-server JSON IPC (v0.17.0 2016-04-11)"
(const :tag "Use --input-unix-socket JSON IPC (v0.7.0 2014-10-16)"
(const :tag "Use --input-file FIFO (any mpv version)" file))
And that's kinda why you might want to use custom-set-variables for
anything defcustom - pretty sure it should give you an error for such
And furthermore, using setq for something like
emms-player-mpv-update-metadata will not run the :set hooks there,
and won't do anything, so again, shouldn't use setq for these.

Yeah, don't think it should matter, and given that debug output is
missing, I'd suspect that for some reason backend is just not used -
maybe some issue with playlist and tracks there?
Not sure what it might be, and I'd probably open emms-player-mpv.el
at this point and try adding e.g. (error "is this working?") as first
line in emms-player-mpv-start function, eval it like that, make sure
it's not just an issue with debug logging, and maybe go check emms.el
in a similar fashion from there.
There probably are more efficient ways to debug code than such
printf-lines, and that's just my go-to with an arbitrary code.
