@everyone Any issue related to ffmpeg2.8 package has nothing to do with 4kvideodownloader. If you have difficulties in install ffmpeg2.8 you could ask to the ffmpeg2.8 package. Since today 2018/12/26 the package ffmpeg2.8 builds and installs fine without any error.

I have the same error!
Unfortunately mixalis1987s workaround didn't work for me.
Is there any better solution for this?

Thank you for your help!

Remove package + dependencies with "pacman -Rs 4kvideodownloader" and re-install.
That fixed it for me.

I found that 4kvideodownloader was unable to start until I installed libxkbcommon-x11.

possibly related bug report:
link by bbs thread:

It complained that: "This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "xcb".
Available platform plugins are: eglfs, linuxfb, minimal, minimalegl, offscreen, xcb.
Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.
Aborted (core dumped)

fixed once I installed libxkbcommon-x11.
I suggest to add it to the dependencies.

The libvpx library had some changes, rebuild the ffmpeg-compat-55 package and try again.
it still fails, after that, rebuild the 4kvideodownload package.
This fixed it for me

pacman -Qs libvpx
local/libvpx 1.4.0-2
VP8 and VP9 codec

what version of libvpx you have installed?
4kvideodownloader depends on ffmpeg-compat and ffmpeg-compat55 which both have libvpx as their dependency
