@cosiekvfj: ffmpeg-compat and lib32-ffmpeg-compat are a different packages. They are named "-compat" because they provide a fixed internal version (API/ABI versions). If you look in AUR, you may find more than one "ffmpeg-compat" package providing different versions.

On the other hand, lib32-ffmpeg provides the latest ffmpeg version, mirroring the ffmpeg package.

So (lib32-)ffmpeg and (lib32-)ffmpeg-compat will always differ and (lib32-)ffmpeg will never provide a previous version.

Also, even if this is outside of the scope of the current package, you may consider moving away from steam runtime compat by installing steam-native-runtime, so you'll be able to use Archlinux's native runtime with Steam. Have a look at it.

For steam runtime compat you need lib32-ffmpeg-compat!

Have you taken a look at DistroWatch's RSS feed? They usually post an update to ffmpeg although I am not sure if it's possible to filter out notifications...

Thanks for the tip on the keys :)

@slyscorpion: it is up to you to import the missing public key. This is ffmpeg's project public key. Something like the following should do the trick:
gpg --keyserver x-hkp:// --recv-keys B4322F04D67658D8

On another subject, I'm updating the package to 3.2.2. I still need to figure out a way to be notified from new releases automatically. The ffmpeg's RSS is unreliable.

This package fails to build due to PGP signature issues:

==> Verifying source file signatures with gpg...

Thanks JonnyJD.

Patch was first included, and then removed since the dev group released 3.1.5 which already includes the openjpeg2 patch. Sorry for the noise.

To be noted: SDL support will be dropped in the next release in favor of SDL2. Stay tuned.

Sorry, I don't have time to maintain the package, currently.

I made oxalin the new maintainer (the notification mail is wrong, I disowned).

It could be added, but that would be up to @JonnyJD to do.

Adding lib32-openjpeg2 to `depends` also wouldn't be a bad thing.
