For this we will use this script: mpv-progressbar.

> cd mpv-progressbar
> make

To build the script you have to install lua compilator for your system.

Making symlink to MPC configuration directory:

> ln $PWD/build/progressbar.lua $HOME/.config/mpv/scripts/progressbar.lua

Copying configuration file:

> cp torque-progressbar.conf $HOME/.config/mpv/script-opts/torque-progressbar/main.conf

Result
