@DrZaius mpv-git sometimes failed to compile only with extra/ffmpeg.

DrZaius commented on 2016-06-01 20:12

@hepha Remove it. See comments below. It appears the maintainer is no longer maintaining. Although why users want use ffmpeg-git in the first place is a mystery to me (perhaps for libfdk_aac?). ffmpeg in Extra should suffice for most.

now build error
can't us this --enable-libdcadec

It would be nice if the pkgver would contain the upstream version.

Suggested change vor pkgver() function:


pkgver() {
cd "$srcdir/$pkgname"
_ver="$(git describe --tags | sed 's|-[^-]*$||' | sed 's|^n||')"
_rev="$(git rev-list --count HEAD)"
_gitid="$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)"
echo "${_ver}.r${_rev}.g${_gitid}"

@DrZaius Yeah, it was your comment that made me think it would be OK to haul out the configure option. Ta.

DrZaius commented on 2016-04-12 16:18

@DianaProbst The author of libdcadec merged it into the FFmpeg native DCA decoder, then support for the now abandoned libdcadec external library was removed as I mentioned a few comments ago on 2016-01-31. The libdcadec dependency and --enable-libdcadec configure option should be removed (among many other dependencies in my opinion).

I tried to build this today and had an error:

==> Starting build()...
Unknown option "--enable-libdcadec".
See ./configure --help for available options.
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

I took that line out of the build file and the package then built and installed. I couldn't play music, so I hauled it out to replace it with ffmpeg from the extra repo, but if you want me put it back again and play around or generate further errors, I can.

No idea what caused it. Figured you should know.

@Eriner Ok, added you as a co-maintainer. Sorry it took so long.

DrZaius commented on 2016-01-31 22:24

FFmpeg has a new native DCA decoder based on libdcadec, so you can remove the libdcadec dependency.

Eriner commented on 2016-01-15 07:03

@KamranMackey sure, if you add me as a co-maintainer I'll take care of it.
