@gregbert It seems to be working now... pretty sure it was a server issue.

This key appears to no longer be trusted by, at least, keyserver hkp:// nor i had to skip the pgp check.

And lest we not forget there are copyright/license/redistribution advantages for only including fdk - to anyone that matters to.

It's unfortunate that Fraunhofer didn't go with a more standard license, but what they have is relatively friendly.

Fair enough.

alucryd, ffmpeg-full is ok for some but IMHO bloated with functionality not required for most users. It takes a lot of dependencies (substantial portion of which is from AUR) and hell of a lot of time to build.

Is this really needed? ffmpeg-full includes libfdk-aac.

Even if their claim about quality at 128kbps was accurate, i'd still be using fdk-aac, because my primary usage involves encoding to AAC-LC in lowest VBR mode (-vbr 1).

Rumor has it that the newer version of Native FFmpeg AAC encoder provides the best quality and libfdk_aac could be removed.
But in fact, that statement is a bit "too loud" :).,111085/topicseen.html
Native FFmpeg AAC has been improved but it is still worse than fdk. In addition, according to my tests it became mush slower than it was.
Not to mention the fact that Native FFmpeg AAC algorithm in ffmpeg 2.8.5 stable is OLD yet.

@korrode, I have done this already, unless you're referring to something else (

Thank you for the advice, but the problem wasn't that I didn't see the upstream change, the problem was that I botched the merge.

'' needs to be added to depends as per Arch main package.

I'd suggest checking commits to the Arch package prior to updating this package and porting them all in:
