I strongly recommend switching to other way to get audio in Flash - this package is largely outdated and seems to be not developed anymore. It is recommended to use of first three solutions from here: - I will probably disown this package soon and if noone will step up to maintain it (might require also picking up the development of this solution!) I think it should be removed from Arch - such obsolete code might cause more harm than good.

I've updated pkgbuild to use separate package function.

Updated package with the sed line from leepesjee's comment, also added missing deps.

From the comments in flashsupport.c:
"...The ALSA and Video4Linux support in this file is somewhat redundant and reduced in functionality as the Flash Player already has ALSA and Video4Linux support built-in. It is provided here for reference only." So I just commented out the V4L1 define with "sed -i 's|#define V4L1|//#define V4L1|' ./flashsupport.c" and it all seem to work.
Btw, if having oss installed, you also need to get /usr/lib/ out of the way. This also means you have to reinstall after every oss update.

Changing line 184 in flashsupport.c from linux/videodev.h to libv4l1-videodev.h will allow to build but it crashes the flash plugin in Chromium and Firefox4 (x86_64).

Flagged out of date because I always get this error too

Same here:

What's up with that?

As of 2.6.38 this package doesn't appear to compile due to videodev.h being in staging:

flashsupport.c:184:28: fatal error: linux/videodev.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
make[1]: *** [libflashsupport_la-flashsupport.lo] Error 1

And editing the source or linking videodev.h produces an error:

In file included from flashsupport.c:184:0:
/usr/src/linux-2.6.38-ARCH/drivers/staging/usbvideo/videodev.h:147:27: error: expected ':', ',', ';', '}' or '__attribute__' before '*' token
