I've built with jdk8... Like this:

env JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk PATH=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk/jre/bin:$PATH makepkg -sic

But if you want to execute jitsi, it's better to set it globally:

archlinux-java set java-8-openjdk

See pinned comment.

Fixed file permissions and updated to latest build.

/usr/bin/jitsi and /usr/share/applications/jitsi.desktop were left with wrong permissions after installing, ie no read/execute permissions for non root.

There's no point posting when the daily builds are updated. Like I said in the first comment. You'll have to update the PKGBUILD yourself until there's a stable release.

The version given in the PKGBUILD is no longer available for download. Current is buildver=3500

Thanks AbrahamS. Updated to the latest build. Post here if you still have webcam issues and I'll contact the Jitsi devs.

The jitsi nightly specified in the the PKGBUILD is no longer available to download. To get the latest version to work replace buildver=3476 with buildver=3486. The sha246sum is 'e325a995736c256eb0b2c232f9d66a606af042cc969a54e417aad6ca097e2c8a'

Those of you having problems with using the Webcam on this latest build just hold on. The FFMPEG library was rebuilt without MPJEG accidentally by one of Jitsi's devs. A fix should be out soon and I'll update this package when it is.

Updated to latest version and simplified the categories in the .desktop entry to stop it showing up in multiple submenus.

if you use jre you have to link it in /usr/bin:
ln -s /opt/java/bin/java /usr/bin/java

so put jdk or openjdk into the makedepends!
