Hi there.

This package does not build against the standard ffmpeg included in Arch. It seems that fairly recently ffmpeg decided to move some of their headers around.

I reported this bug to the Amarok people, but the git repository does not seem to be too active, so I won't be holding my breath for a fix. In the meantime, we can compile amarok against ffmpeg2.8.

We just need to make ffmpeg2.8 a dependency, and then add the following line in the build script before the cmake section:

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/usr/lib/ffmpeg2.8/pkgconfig"

I stole this fix from ffmpegthumbs which seemed to suffer from the same problem for a while.
