It seems, upstream moved to github:

Unfortunately, I could not build it. I got an error calling configure:

checking where the gettext function comes from... libc
./configure: line 15696: syntax error near unexpected token `1.4'
./configure: line 15696: `      GTK_DOC_CHECK(1.4)'
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

Is someone having an idea, what to do or try?

lordSeaworths sollution worked for me, though.

@lordSeaworth: Thanks a lot for your help! All the best,

The website still seems to be offline till this day so I flagged the package out-of-date. You can manually download the file for now if that might help anyone else having issues with this package.

You might need to install libv4l if it gives an error not finding it.

pacman -S libv4l

Hi everyone, Is there some trouble with, or maybe just some server maintenance? It seems unreachable right now. Thanks in advance and all the best,

@MazeChaZer no worries :). I've updated the PKGBUILD

@marsam Sorry for not responding, I must have overlooked your comment. I added you as a co-maintainer. If you want you can also take over this package completely, I only started maintaining the package because I needed it but I don't have any further knowledge about this software.

Hi: I've update the pkgbuild diff:

I took over the maintainance of this package after it got lost in the transition to aurweb 4.0
Joshua Mendoza, if you still want to maintain this package just drop me a message.
There is quite some patching done here and I'm not sure if I am able to package future versions.
