@RRRadek: This hasn't worked in quite some time.

Please don't flag packages out of date unless there is a new upstream release.

@yochananmarqos I have a error

ValueError: invalid pyproject.toml config: `project.license`.
configuration error: `project.license` must be valid exactly by one definition (2 matches found):

    - keys:
        'file': {type: string}
      required: ['file']
    - keys:
        'text': {type: string}
      required: ['text']

ERROR Backend subprocess exited when trying to invoke get_requires_for_build_wheel
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

Can You fix it?

@drugo: Of course python-pychromecast6 provides and conflicts with python-pychromecast, they're the same package at different versions. That's not related to this package.

This package only works with python-pychromecast >=9.2.0,<9.3.0. I use 9.2.1.

Please do not flag packages out of date unless there is a new upstream release.

@alexdelorenzo: Thanks for the heads up.

Just FYI, I've yanked every new version of cast_control above 0.11.4 and newer from PyPI. The 0.12.x releases are broken. Same with mpris_server versions above 0.4.2. The last stable versions are 0.11.4 and 0.4.2 respectively.

Thanks again for taking the time to package this for the AUR!
