@Rulatir gcc6 is pulled in by xulrunner, which is needed to build the npapi browser plugin. If you don't need that, you can change this line in the PKGBUILD:

--with-npapi-plugindir=/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins \

to this:

--disable-npapi \

and remove xulrunner as a dep to skip those huge builds.

This package has insane build requirements including gcc6, which means that building it with all the requirements that also need to be built is a day of hard work. Any hope a binary might be provided?

@z3ntu: that patch fails for me for some reason (specifically, hunks 2 and 3). However, if I'm understanding what it does correctly, you can achieve the same thing simply by adding:

sed -i 's/FF_INPUT_BUFFER_PADDING_SIZE/AV_INPUT_BUFFER_PADDING_SIZE/g' libmedia/ffmpeg/MediaParserFfmpeg.cpp

sed -i 's/FF_INPUT_BUFFER_PADDING_SIZE/AV_INPUT_BUFFER_PADDING_SIZE/g' libmedia/ffmpeg/MediaHandlerFfmpeg.cpp

...immediately above the existing patch command in build(). Or, at least, that works for me.

Patch for the new ffmpeg:

I could successfully build the package, but installing it causes a following error:
error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
gnash-git: /usr/lib64 exists on filesystem

@christoph.gysin thank you. I had no problems with the new PKGBUILD.

The build_on_new_boost.patch is causing the failure, since it has already been applied upstream:

I was unable to get this to build. Can anyone get it to build?

@FredBezies @Abogical Thank you for the clarification and update.

"Does this means no more gnash in the AUR? The package built and installed without any problems on my computer, and it works with Firefox 46.0.1. It would be nice to have some way to run old Flash applications"

You can build it, but it is like a dead end project. Xulrunner is no more built by Mozilla. One day or another, it won't be usable anymore in Mozilla Firefox.

"Are we left without any good alternative to proprietary Flash now?"

In some way, yes. Lots of sites are "killing" flash support. You need flash ? Looks like the only working option will be in the long run : freshplayerplugin + chromium-pepper-flash.
