libva-headless is recommended over libva

Update system pacman -Syu --ignore=dav1d(x265,x264 ...etc)

Update package ignoring deps pacman -Sd dav1d(x265,x264 ...etc)

then rebuild AUR package against new library

Since upgrading to vmaf 3.0 ffprobe failes with cannot load shared library One solution is to add libvmaf-compat as a dependency.

Currently the build fails with libavcodec/x86/mathops.h:125: Error: operand type mismatch for 'shr', see:

To fix this, add the following prepare function:

prepare() {
    cd ffmpeg
    git cherry-pick -n effadce6c756247ea8bae32dc13bb3e6f464f0eb # Fix assembling with binutil as >= 2.41

@hashworks I try to keep as close as possible to the ffmpeg package in the repos, so I'd rather not do that, if it were to be added the the repo package I will however add it. (Unless there is a really good reason I should add it)

Could you include openh264 (--enable-libopenh264)?

@lapicidae Thanks for the heads up, added the patch.

add in PKGBUILD -> prepare()

git cherry-pick -n eb0455d64690eed0068e5cb202f72ecdf899837c # hwcontext_vulkan: remove optional encode/decode extensions from the list

Hi, I have played little bit more and found that the build problem is caused by 'libmfx'. This package is not available for ARM platform making the yay AUR helpler to get if from AUR. Unfortunately the package in AUR depends on non-headless version of libva and some other x86-only packages leading to requirements to install wayland and build errors. After I have removed the dependency on libmfx, the package builds ok. I had also to disable nvidia encoders and decoders as these are neither available on headless ARM.

@jxjl No intel-* package is hard dependency here, not quite sure how you ended up with that error.

Is this via some AUR helper? If so, try without it. Those other packages it tried to include seemed quite.. weird?

I am no longer able to install this package on headless system due to dependency on intel-media-driver

the install fail with

-> The following packages are not compatible with your architecture:
vmaf-git  libva-git  intel-gmmlib-git  intel-media-driver-git  intel-media-sdk-git (libmfx-git)  svt-av1-git

trying to build for headless ARMv7 machine, the complaint about libva-git seems to be strange as well as I have libva-headless installed

You not wanting to update ffmpeg is one thing, but please do not delay the update for everyone else because of it. Sure, we can edit the PKGBUILD ourselves, but then what purpose do you serve as a maintainer?
