Why is this package flagged out of date.

Latest version available for linux on upstream URL is and PKGBUILD also has pkgver= But package available for download from upstream has version in name changed to 4.2-1 instead of

Only version update is required in PKGBUILD and corresponding checksums

It's not useless, you just need to download the statically linked version (portable) from the downloads page:

Here's a working PKGBUILD:

Ahhhhh. It's useless. I wish they would release the source so we could recompile it against current libraries. Dang. I hate closed source.

They use https to access files on their server instead of http.

To install latest version during installation edit the package build when prompted and change "pkgver" To latest available version
Also update "sha256sums_i686/sha256sums_x86_64" for relevant tar.bz2 file (i686 / amd64)

For eg to install version on x86_64 set

new version of 4k video downloader 4.2.1
and 4k youtube to mp3 3.1

great idea, I'll add it to every 4k packages!
This will take off many false issues with users with outdated sources

This patch against version will address the fact that the upstream source tarball does not include the full version number... that can cause checksum failures on subsequent builds.
