@sseneca Looks like an issue with the python-pydantic dependency. I checked the change history on that package, and it seems that the maintainers picked up on that a few hours after your post, so it should be fixed now.

I suddenly started getting this error today:

Installing python-typing_extensions fixed this for me, so if others are having it this issue it should be added to depends

Thanks @triatk. The issue appears to be python-pystray missing gobject as a dependency - I've forwarded the report to that package's maintainer, hopefully that should fix the dependency issue.

The blue screen issue is tracked upstream in this issue. It appears to be caused by graphics backend problems or something being broken in libmpv1 on KDE. Possible fixes include setting mpv_ext to true in Jellyfin MPV Shim's config file, or switching graphics renderer from OpenGL to Vulkan. You could check the linked issue and see if any of the solutions work for you.

@kruzah without gobject, the systray wont show under KDE, the video playback is normal. after install it, the systray is working but the video playback is bluescreen.

Update: Thanks @kruzah. After the python-pystray update, the systray is working and after edit the config mpv_ext to true, the video playback is back to normal now.

@triatk Could you post the full stack trace from Python? I cannot test without python-gobject because too many of my installed packages depend on it. Upstream does not specify it as a dependency, and it is listed as an optdepend for this package's dependency python-pywebview already. Said dependency should be usable without python-gobject if its Qt optdepends are installed instead.

kruzah commented on 2020-12-15 20:18

@chrisqq Python was recently upgraded to 3.9 in main repos, and it's likely that your installation of python-mpv was built for 3.8. You should cleanly build that package, so that it is re-built for 3.9. You can check which packages you have that are built for Python 3.8 using pacman -Qo /usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages. All of the python-* packages listed should be rebuilt and reinstalled to ensure you have the latest version.

If you have yay installed, you can run pacman -Qoq /usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages | yay -S --answerclean All - to do this.

triatk commented on 2020-12-15 18:50

please add python-gobject to the dependencies. otherwise it will throw a error: AttributeError: module 'gi' has no attribute 'require_version'

jellyfin-mpv-shim-web has now been added as an optdepend. It is required for desktop support.

kruzah commented on 2020-08-08 13:34

Thanks @JP-Undercover, this does indeed appear to be a packaging issue. I believed I had packaged everything, but I missed the jellyfin-web dependency. I'll push an update to this package that includes jellyfin-web and also update to 1.7 at the same time. That should resolve the issue.
