I've just bumped the version to v0.4.0 which no longer includes the GStreamer player backends by default. However you can easily install any of the player backend packages (called gnome-twitch-player-backend-*) straight from the AUR. This removes the unecessary GStreamer dependencies for those who use the MPV backend ;).

If you need help deciding I've created a short wiki page here which describes the differences between the different player backends.

You should rename the $source to something like ("$pkgname-$pkgver.tar.gz::<>${pkgver}.tar.gz") (without the <> that the AUR comment system apparently feels like adding…) to make the filename unique; see for more details. I just got a checksum failure because I already have a "v0.4.2.tar.gz" from some other package.

@t0phr @Moo-Crumpus Sorry for the delay, I've updated the version to v0.4.2 now which has the SSL fix.

Playback crashes as twitch api now requires ssl. Fixed in git, see

Thanks for notifying me, this has been fixed upstream now. I will add a patch for this package.

EDIT: Should be fixed now.

Resolved. The source package is bugged. You have to modify the source package v0.4.1.tar.gz, open meson_option.txt and replace "descritpion" with "description".
Then replace md5 in in PKGBUILD with:

I have a problem when i install it:

You were right, I forgot to comment my anaconda installation of python from my $PATH

vinszent commented on 2017-04-04 21:28

Something is most likely wrong with either your Python or Meson installation I think. Make sure you have Python 3.6 installed and that Meson is available in your site-packages (usually in /usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/mesonbuild/ on Arch).
