The jellyfin-ffmpeg5-bin package for x86_64 and aarch64 is ready.

For those who don't want to manually build jellyfin-ffmpeg5.

Don't forget to set the ffmpeg path to /usr/lib/jellyfin-ffmpeg/ffmpeg.

For Jellyfin 10.8 and newer, we are moving to this package. jellyfin-ffmpeg package will co-exist with it for backward compatibility on Jellyfin 10.7 and older.

The new jellyfin-ffmpeg6 package is out -

Make sure you have upgraded the server to 10.8.10+.

@gameslayer Did you install 'pkgconf', which provides 'pkg-config'? I have encountered the same issue and solved by installing this package.

@gameslayer I don't see any breaking changes that made in 'gnutls' recently and 'jellyfin-ffmpeg5' builds just fine on my end. Please reinstall it from pacman and try again.

You can also switch to 'jellyfin-ffmpeg5-bin' if you don't want to build manually.

@Best You have to rebuild the jellfin-ffmpeg5 package since the the linked libvpx library is changed. The same is true for the AUR ffmpeg-git package.

Or switch to AUR jellyfin-ffmpeg5-bin if you don't want to build manually.

:: installing libvpx (1.13.0-1) breaks dependency '' required by jellyfin-ffmpeg5

The latest Vulkan header breaks the FFmpeg 5.1.x stable.

You have to downgrade it to v1.3.237 and older or apply this:

Or just use jellyfin-ffmpeg5-bin package instead. I'll fix this the next time we tag a release.

ffmpeg depends on the version of libplacebo at the build time, which means each time you update libplacebo, the ffmpeg must be rebuilt.

You can try AUR libplacebo-git instead or switch to AUR jellyfin-ffmpeg5-bin.
