@MarsSeed I wasn't sure how best to name it as it doesn't build from source, but is not deterministic. I found other similar packages that worked as this one does though, which is why I submitted it like this. I can change to a -git package that builds from source, but since the upstream provides binary releases I chose to offer those in this package.

This package is useful for specific yt-dlp (package in Arch community repository) use cases, and is the recommended ffmpeg build from that package's developers. It includes fixes in ffmpeg 5.1 which is not yet up-to-date in Arch's Extra repository, but more importantly it includes useful patches not yet present in any upstream ffmpeg release.

I would expect this package to become less useful as ffmpeg is updated, but does solve certain issues with yt-dlp right now.

Hi. I think this is not a proper package, as it is not deterministic.

The source should either be fixed, or this package should be created as a VCS package and renamed accordingly.

Btw, what is the reason for having this package in AUR? Is it really needed here?
