@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.

@Captain_Rage lightspark would be your only hope now.

@FredBezies 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, since I need that for viewing http://www.virtualpathology.leeds.ac.uk/slides/library/ (which works perfectly with gnash-git). Are we left without any good alternative to proprietary Flash now?

Looks more and more as a dead-end project. XulRunner is not produced anymore. Cf https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1147577 -> "stop building XULRunner builds"

Fixed in august 2015...

When uninstalling:

/usr/bin/bash: pre_remove: command not found

@constroy
I forgot to mention that this patch has been implemented in the gnash git repos and has fixed the bug:
http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?47301

It works for me, you may need to redownload the git repositories.

constroy commented on 2016-03-08 06:16

The patch is not enough. (struct AVFrame seems not correct)
I suggest using the ffmpeg2.8 in official repo Extra instead.

Abogical commented on 2016-03-01 19:46

The class and enums that gnash uses have been renamed since ffmpeg 3.0, I made a patch that simply renames them correctly.
