@creepergd Hey, when you have a patch for an outdated package it's best to just put it in the comments and wait for one of the maintainers to apply it. Or send them an email if it takes too long.

Change pkgver to

@creepergd, no, duplicate packages are forbidden ... Please either update the package locally, wait for it to be updated here or help by maintaining the existing PKGBUILD

Do you guys think that the AUR would accept if I were to copy this script and modify it to have later versions or not? I've never made any significant contributions to a distro or anything FOSS and I wanna start doing that because I love arch lol. I already was able to install 2.0.0 by changing pkgver to 2.0.0 and skipping integ checks because I was too lazy to get the checksums and stuff, but I'll bet I could get that working. I learned some bash scripting in college and I want to put some of that to use.

snd_aloop only needs to be loaded when using Android device as an audio source, no? In the repository the developer even recommends against using this feature. snd_aloop being loaded caused me some issues with a Java application (RuneLite) not playing audio. Perhaps this should be an opt-in as opposed to an opt-out?

Hi @balwierz!

Not everyone uses linux-headers, could be linux-lts-header, linux-zen-headers, or any other flavor. This dependency can not be hard-coded.

This package should depend on linux-headers, otherwise it does not build

There are not any problem with the package, and it is not maintainer's responsibility to update anything. Please, don't flag this package as obsolete when it is not. The current last version is 1.8.2, so as this AUR.

As you can see in the wiki, it is your responsibility (final user, not the maintainer) to rebuild all your AUR packages when a dependency is updated:

Note: The AUR is unsupported, so any packages you install are your responsibility to update, not pacman's. If packages in the official repositories are updated, you will need to rebuild any AUR packages that depend on those libraries.

ffmpeg was updated, so you need to rebuild the droidcam package in the same way that you installed it the first time; if you are using a helper tool as yay, just remove the cache (rm -r ~/.cache/yay/droidcam), and then reinstall the package.

I'm sorry, but I'm no longer going to reply to things that are already documented on the wiki.
