Could we add the modprobe config to the backup array to keep changed webcam resolutions? Thank you :)

Error in the PKGBUILD; 'LICENCE' should be called 'LICENSE'.

Inside the pkgbuild, checksum must be changed to md5 and sha512

I think a 'droidcam-git' package makes the most sense, really.

grazzolini commented on 2020-07-07 14:00 (UTC)

This package can have an epoch, for sure. But I'm still not sure if that's the best approach. Another plan I had was to drop this and upload a new package with correct version. There are a few options, other than adding an epoch.

alerque commented on 2020-07-07 09:25 (UTC)

@grazzolini I understand the versioning issue, but there is no reason to keep duplicates in the AUR. If it does move to [community] both sets of non-VCS packages will be obsolete. In the mean time having an epoch in the AUR won't change the situation when/if migrating, and the current best packaging is actually the {{aur|droidcam}} package right now. Even if a migration does happen this VCS package can stay, but it should probably be renamed (dkms isn't a distinctive feature of this package, if anything it would only apply to the module subpackage) and an epoch should be added so it can be properly versioned.

grazzolini commented on 2020-07-07 02:33 (UTC)

As I've mentioned, upstream changed their versioning numbering, so, there's no clean way to move to the upstream git without adding an epoch to this package. The main reason I haven't done so is because I have been considering adding this package to the official repositories, without an epoch, but building from upstream git and right version.

ngoonee commented on 2020-07-05 04:18 (UTC)

This isn't a git package at all, just grabbing the dev47apps release. ShayBox your gist has been deleted. grazzolini could you update appropriately to actually build from git rather than just grabbing latest?

shaybox commented on 2020-06-07 23:42 (UTC) (edited on 2020-06-07 23:57 (UTC) by shaybox)

This is a -git package, you must source the github repository and compile, not grab from

I have updated the PKGBUILD

Skipped verification of untagged sources
Removed md5sums since sha256sums were present
Removed linking to $_pkgbase on unrelated package names and links

@Skipperio It makes no sense to install v4l2loopback-dkms.

Skipperio commented on 2020-04-30 22:29 (UTC) (edited on 2020-04-30 22:30 (UTC) by Skipperio)

@smokehead touch /etc/modules-load.d/droidcam.conf

with this inside "v4l2loopback_dc"

install this

brodokk commented on 2020-04-25 00:00 (UTC)

Hello I don't know why but for install your package I had to change all install command with /usr/bin/install otherwise makepkg launched the install script :

grazzolini commented on 2020-04-24 19:46 (UTC)


Check if you have the same kernel booted as the kernel you have installed.

Fenrihr commented on 2020-04-24 14:51 (UTC)

@Sebastian I tried the command but i get this response: modprobe: FATAL: Module v4l2loopback_dc not found in directory /lib/modules/5.6.6-1-MANJARO

Sebastian commented on 2020-04-23 06:44 (UTC) (edited on 2020-04-23 06:45 (UTC) by Sebastian)

@smokehead: When this package has been installed correctly you still need to load the kernel module:

sudo modprobe v4l2loopback_dc width=1280 height=720

smokehead commented on 2020-04-20 01:58 (UTC)

it shows this then closes: Device not found (/dev/video[0-9]). Did you install it?

also how do i uninstall this package? i cant find it on package manager... (noob here)
