@Houtworm nicely spotted, i trusted Firefox's "copy as curl" (and i shouldnt have). Now the AUR should download back automatically (but not if the file is already downloaded).

They have added user agent and content-type checking

curl '' -H 'User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:53.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/53.0' -H 'Content-Type: application/json;charset=utf-8' --data '{"country":"us","platform":"Linux"}'

I am Using the LTS Kernel, If you want i could try the Non LTS version. I am upgrading to a m.2 ssd anyway :)

@fthiery, your request JSON is malformed. Fixing it:

{country":"us","platform":"Linux"} <- before
{"country":"us","platform":"Linux"} <- after

Seems to give the desired response.

@Houtworm are you using the lts kernel or the latest one ?

Thanks fthiery,

It works perfectly now.

Capturing with my Blackmagic Intensity Pro 4K on Arch :)

I replaced the broken download method by a static path (redefine pkgsrc_file after download, by default /tmp/Blackmagic_Desktop_Video_Linux_10.9.tar).

Tried to fake the POST request to (supposed to return the actual download url) but it always ends up with a 504 GATEWAY_TIMEOUT error.

curl '' -H 'Host:' -H 'User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:53.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/53.0' -H 'Accept: application/json, text/plain, */*' -H 'Accept-Language: en-US,en;q=0.5' --compressed -H 'Content-Type: application/json;charset=utf-8' -H 'Referer:' -H 'Content-Length: 35' -H 'DNT: 1' -H 'Connection: keep-alive' --data '{country":"us","platform":"Linux"}' -v

The request is supposed to return a url like:

If anyone succeeds in programmatically getting this url i'll happily integrate it instead.

Indeed, apparently bmd has improved the download protection, working on it

Sadly it does not build, Failed to download.

It gives an error unable to resolve host: invalid request to download.

Also manually downloading the file and putting it in the makepkg folder does not work.

It would be a nice add to the PKGBUILD to search for local files so that the curl download is not necessary whenever blackmagic desides to change urls.

Thanks And Greets

I know, said it below: you need linux-lts to have the driver working, not the latest linux package.

Over here compilation still fails :
