The current v2.0.6.r5 that I get installed, regardless which package I choose, seems to have a serious bug: no audio in recorded videos. I can record videos with audio in vokoscreen or OBS Studio but in gucview, no matter what formats I use, there is no audio in the resulting videos. And guvcview definitely receives the audio (the green to red peak indicators show it unmistakingly). Seems to be an encoding issue.

Unfortunately when I try the -git versions and set the source like this:


in PKGBUILD it doesn't compile.

In PKGBUILD, the following line is preventing the package from working:

patch -p1 -i pix_fmt.patch

patch is useless indeed. Last git version : 2.0.4.r23.g6

The patch seems unnecessary meanwhile. I guess you can just forget it, or if still needed line 7 needs to be changed to - return E_OK; Apart from that the package seems broken like the stable release, too. $ guvcview GUVCVIEW: version 2.0.3 GUVCVIEW: couldn't open /home/bernhard/.config/guvcview2/video0 for read: No such file or directory Guvcview: using GUI 1 for option gtk V4L2_CORE: (UVCIOC_CTRL_MAP) Error: No such file or directory ALSA lib pcm.c:2266:(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM cards.pcm.rear ALSA lib pcm.c:2266:(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM cards.pcm.center_lfe ALSA lib pcm.c:2266:(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM cards.pcm.side ALSA lib pcm_route.c:867:(find_matching_chmap) Found no matching channel map connect(2) call to /dev/shm/jack-1000/default/jack_0 failed (err=No such file or directory) attempt to connect to server failed AUDIO: Portaudio device changed to 4 Segmentation fault (core dumped)

This no longer builds (including in a clean chroot):

Merging into guvcview-git as requested.
