Once the dependency issues are fixed, this package should build again.

Once the package is fixed, if it fails to download videos please open a deletion request.

This project seems abandoned. The latest version didn't seem to work correctly anymore, so I've started using the firefox plugin "flash video downloader" instead.

Google code repository does not exist.

jsteel commented on 2014-05-05 14:33

What do you mean by "looks like"? Please give a reason.

hermes14 commented on 2014-05-05 13:49

Looks like Crypt::Blowfish_PP and HTML::Tree are required as dependencies.

hermes14 commented on 2014-05-05 13:43

perl-crypt-blowfish and perl-html-tree are required as dependencies. They're both in [community]

jsteel commented on 2013-04-23 14:48

perl-any-moose is broken then. Looks like the _distdir variable is not working (in the PKGBUILD). Change all:
cd "$_distdir"
cd "$srcdir"/Any-Moose-$pkgver

innn commented on 2013-04-23 04:49

ooops, I get this:

/tmp/packerbuild-1000/perl-any-moose/perl-any-moose/PKGBUILD: Zeile 26: cd: /Any-Moose-0.18: File or Directory not found

innn commented on 2013-04-23 04:38

hi, I've tried installing this using packer and faced a hell of dependencies and failed to build
what is the easiest way to get this please?

Anonymous comment on 2013-03-28 19:41

Ok, now it works again, finally :) Thanks jsteel!

jsteel commented on 2013-03-28 18:50

Ah, perl-universal-require is also needed; removing it causes that error. It should be a dep of perl-data-amf so I have asked for it to be added there. Please try installing it to confirm if that's OK now. Thanks.

jsteel commented on 2013-03-28 18:09

@Army: Works for me. What's your output of:
pacman -Qi {perl-data-amf,perl-any-moose} | grep Name -A1

Anonymous comment on 2013-03-28 16:51

Hmmm, I tried the failed command and look what I get...:

$ get_flash_videos
Using method 'ustream' plugin version 0.01 for
Must have Data::AMF::Packet installed to download ustream videos at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/FlashVideo/Site/ line 15.
A required Perl module for downloading this video is not installed.
Couldn't download any videos.

Anonymous comment on 2013-03-28 16:39

Those are a lot of dependencies! Hope it doesn't break all the time! ;)

Thanks for the update!

jsteel commented on 2013-03-28 16:26

@Army and Hermano_Arco: All sorted.

jsteel commented on 2013-03-24 20:54

@ilikenwf which script?

I think perl-any-moose should be a dep of Perl Data AMF, so I'm seeing if I can get it added to perl-data-amf-packet if that's the right place. If not, I'll add it here.

ilikenwf commented on 2013-03-23 20:28

You need to set the script as executable in your PKGBUILD.

jsteel commented on 2013-03-21 18:43

They un-deleted my report. Turns out perl-any-moose is needed. I've tested and can confirm that fixes downloading from ustream. I'll update this package soon.

jsteel commented on 2013-03-19 21:17

Still no luck with Ustream so I submitted a bug report[1] but it says it's been deleted. I tried again and the same thing happened. Here's a copy of the report[2].


Anonymous comment on 2013-03-11 16:19

Worked fine. Just had to setup Cpan and run: cpan Module::Find
I also removed the perl-universal-require from the dependencies list because I'm running from a Raspberry Pi and we don't have that package.

jsteel commented on 2013-02-27 17:08

Are you saying those dependencies fix the issue with Otherwise what are they needed for? Thanks.

@Army sorry I didn't get back to you, I spent some time with this and couldn't see what was going wrong. I think I was about to file a bug report upstream but must have forgotten. I'll have another go at this soon.

Anonymous comment on 2013-02-27 15:02

perl-module-find and perl-universal-require are missing from the dependencies.

I get the same errors with as Army from previous comment.

Other than those, good stuff :)

Anonymous comment on 2013-01-05 11:38

For we need an additional dependency, 1. see and 2. see my output

% get_flash_videos
Using method 'ustream' for
Must have Data::AMF::Packet installed to download ustream videos at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/FlashVideo/Site/ line 12.

A required Perl module for downloading this video is not installed.
Couldn't download any videos.

There is perl-data-amf-packet on the AUR, but unfortunately installing it doesn't solve the problem. Does anybody know how to fix this or why it doesn't work?

jsteel commented on 2012-10-24 19:31

Works for me.

zertyz commented on 2012-10-22 22:54

Not working for youtube

jsteel commented on 2012-09-29 12:39

The previous maintainer said he's not using Arch right now so orphaned the package.

Thanks for the comments, updated.

nick8325 commented on 2012-07-22 10:43

If you add INSTALLSITESCRIPT=/usr/bin to the make install line in the PKGBUILD, the script installs to the right place.

zertyz commented on 2012-02-26 01:15

I wonder why the package installs to /usr/bin/site_perl/get_flash_videos since that isn't in the path...
Anyway, shouldn't the package asserts that /etc/profile includes /usr/bin/site_perl?

Anonymous comment on 2012-01-16 18:30

Looks like perl-http-cookies is required, please add it to the depends line! But after that I still get

Error: No URLs found at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/FlashVideo/ line 129.

But it works for sites which actually have a video that this package can download (verified with youtube)

ridikulusrat commented on 2011-12-21 14:34

perl-lwp-protocol-https is required for acessing https youtube URLs. Please add it a depends or optdepends. TIA.

chneukirchen commented on 2011-12-03 20:29

Now it installs to /usr/bin/site_perl/get_flash_videos...

Anonymous comment on 2011-08-30 21:17

Nevermind, it's a problem in [testing] right now, see this bugreport

Anonymous comment on 2011-08-29 18:56

It doesn't work here atm.

To install globally and not the the builders home, add "INSTALL_BASE=/usr" and "INSTALLSITELIB=/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl" to the make install line.

matthewbauer commented on 2010-08-08 04:01

/usr/lib/perl5/core_perl should be added to your Perl path automatically via the file /etc/profile.d/ owned by the perl package.

I think all files in /etc/profile.d are loaded by /etc/profile if you have the latest version of filesystem.

Since /etc/profile is backed up by pacman it's possible that you have the file in /etc/profile.pacnew. You can copy the new parts of /etc/profile.pacnew to /etc/profile.

chneukirchen commented on 2010-08-08 00:00

export PATH=/usr/lib/perl5/core_perl/bin:$PATH

else it won't find pod2man.

You should add git to the dependencies
