I'm dropping all the dependencies from the package, as far I understand they are not required anymore as the QT libraries are shipped from the software itself

The lib is total trash, in a free version you can only download 25 videos in theory, practically half of them are unavailable (parse error). I just end up with first googled website

Why is this package flagged out of date.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

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
