I know the upstream URL needs to be updated. As the main developer of MellowPlayer, I know I've moved to gitlab... I haven't done it yet because I have other tasks that are more important or with a highest priority. I initially planned to update the URL next time there is a valuable update to the package (such as a new version or a fix for the broken optional dependency). So please stop reporting the broken url, it is not that important. AFAIK the package still builds fine.

About the broken OPTIONAL dependency: I haven't found the time to look for a replacement but this task is higher on my priority list than fixing the upstream URL. I'll give it a look ASAP but If you want to help, please try chromium-widevine and let me know if that works for you.

The .SRCINFO need to be updated to new gitlab URL.

I think it makes sense to update the URL to: (they moved to gitlab)

@glavin Thanks for letting me know. Do you know if using chromium-widevine works?

@murlakatamenka Thanks. I'll update the Upstream URL.

qt5-webengine-widevine has been removed from aur.

murlakatamenka commented on 2019-03-13 14:14

Upstream URL should be updated to GitLab as well.

qt5-webengine-widevine is also needed for amazon web player.

Hi, the install of this package on an OS instance where Qt toolchain had never been used fails with this error message:

[...] PKGBUILD: line 24: qbs-setup-qt: command not found

I've resolved by shifting the Qbs configuration commands to the build() block. The resulting PKGBUILD file looks like this:

# Maintainer: Colin Duquesnoy <>
# Maintainer: ZeroDot1 <>
pkgdesc="Open source and cross-platform desktop application that runs web-based music streaming 
         services in its own window and provides integration with your desktop."
depends=('qt5-base' 'qt5-webengine' 'qt5-svg' 'qt5-quickcontrols2' 'qt5-quickcontrols' 'qt5-translations' 'qt5-graphicaleffects' 'xdg-utils' 'libnotify' 'libevent')
makedepends=('qt5-tools' 'qbs' 'mesa')
optdepends=( 'qt5-webengine-widevine: DRM needed for Spotify' 'pepper-flash: needed for Tidal and Deezer')

build() {
    cd "${srcdir}/${_pkgname}-${pkgver}"

    ## shifted commands ##
    qbs-setup-toolchains --detect
    qbs-setup-qt $(which qmake) qt5
    qbs-config defaultProfile qt5
    ## end shifted commands##

    qbs build config:release

    ## shifted commands ##
    patch -Np1 -i "${srcdir}/widevine-path.patch" "${srcdir}/${_pkgname}-${pkgver}/src/main/share/applications/mellowplayer.desktop"
    ## end shifted commands ##

package() {
    cd "${srcdir}/${_pkgname}-${pkgver}"
    qbs install --install-root "${pkgdir}/usr" config:release

EDIT: provided PKGBUILD bug fix - also .desktop patch file command has been moved to build() block
