Please stop flagging package as out-of-date until there is stable version, not alpha, beta, RC or whatever.

@DavTheRaveUK, have you tried the more up-to-date *acestream-engine-py3?

Have you tried upstream support forum ?

Hello, I have had a good around the internet before coming here and asking for some help.

So, I would like to record an Acestream stream.

I have tried various command-line variations but have had no luck:

< acestream-launcher acestreamID -p "mpv --record-file=/home/dave/Desktop/acestreamtestrecord1.mp4" >

< acestream-launcher -p "mpv --stream-/home/dave/Desktop/acestreamtestrecord2.mp4" acestreamID >

Actually it's issue. It depends on removed packages.

To workaround this issue one can build python2-urllib3 using makepkg's --nocheck flag.

Tried to build package but got the following build errors: could not satisfy dependencies:

  • unable to satisfy dependency 'python2-pytest-freezegun>=0.4.0' required by python2-urllib3

  • unable to satisfy dependency 'python2-tornado' required by python2-urllib3

  • unable to satisfy dependency 'python2-trustme' required by python2-urllib3

  • unable to satisfy dependency 'python2-urllib3' required by python2-requests

  • unable to satisfy dependency 'python2-requests' required by acestream-engine

I extracted 3.1.75 and yay -S python38. Then installed python-pip, then pip --python /bin/python3.8 install -r requirements.txt in the extracted dir. from there just symlink acestreamengine binary to /usr/bin then use acestream-launcher to launch streams

I'm now on the python 3.7 version, but I can tell you that python2-requests was never installed when I used the old one on python 2.7. What is the requests module needed for?

Update: Okay, I took a look at it. The old 3.1.49 did not need the requests module. The current one needs it. It's the 3.1.74 on python 3.7 that does not have the requests module.

What are those _libsymlinks lines doing?

Reduce package size.

Is requests module really necessary?

@qark No, it seems good. I gave a look at the PKGBUILD. What are those _libsymlinks lines doing?

The past PKGBUILD had a workaround to remove the dependency on apsw.

The stable package deleted on AUR had a systemd service to start the engine in RAM memory only mode <...>. It would be appreciated to restore it.

I copied unit file from acestream-engine-stable. Does it need improvement in this part?
