@laichiaheng - kodi is bound to a specific version of ffmpeg which is generally older than Arch's package. We avoid incompatibilities by using that specific version (ie internal ffmpeg). Recommend that you build kodi in clean chroot. See:

I wrote a script that automates much of that called clean-chroot-manager offered here in the AUR.

Update your system: spdlog-1.12-1 is what you need.

A Kodi dev told me kodi-git needs to be recompiled for the spdlog lib -so it can start.
My solution was to simply make a lib link and rename it.

@kevku this takes that long for me:

It should not take that long to build, even on a low power haswell nuc takes me around an hour.

After libfmt updated to 10 Kodi-git stopped starting, so I opened an issue. Today I read he expects me to build from master which is "fixed". No thanks, 8-16 hours are too much.

With Kodi Omega Alpha 2 you can finally set Pipewire as your backend and enjoy Kodi without audio losses.
Make a shortcut like:
kodi --audio-backend=pipewire
