@Sebalis: I just did a quick check in the SConstruct file where all build options are listed:
FFMPEG is still in in the section "# "Features" of dubious quality", so I'd rather not have it enabled by default.
Maybe you could raise a question on Mixxx forums and report back? (I have to admit I didn't check there in years)...

I had to reinstall mixxx so I looked at the parameters for the build process again. With the settings in the original file I found that some m4a/aac files could not be played. Adding ffmpeg=1 and rebuilding again removed the restriction. So I still recommend that the parameter be included in PKGBUILD, either by the maintainer or as a local modification by users.

I have just updated the pkgbuild with m4a support + deps cleanup. ffmpeg should not be necessary: I only added 'faad2' 'libmp4v2' and built with faad=1 (as per the build instructions).
I have however not tested properly since I don't use aac files.
Also, please bear in mind that any option not enabled by default is unlikely to work perfectly...

Today i build Mixxx (verison 2.0.0.r2462.g2d4f67e) but without the ffmpeg=1 flag and playing m4a/mp4 files works fine.

@Turbo: add the faad=1 ffmpeg=1 flags to the build section, not the package one.

I have tried like that:
build() {
cd "$srcdir/mixxx"
scons qtdir=/usr/lib/qt4 prefix=/usr faad=1 ffmpeg=1 install_root="$pkgdir/usr" virtualize=0 localecompare=1 qt_sqlite_plugin=0 opus=1 optimize=native build=release battery=0 tuned=1 wv=1 shoutcast=0

package() {
cd "$srcdir/mixxx"
scons qtdir=/usr/lib/qt4 prefix=/usr faad=1 ffmpeg=1 install_root="$pkgdir/usr" install

still the same...

@Turbo: there are two command lines starting with “scons” in PKGBUILD, they need these two extra parameters. For more clarity you can also read the comment by romein (the earliest on this page) that I referred to.

I can't get things to work even after following your comment.
I have added 'faad2' 'libmp4v2' to the dependencies,I do not understand the meaning of "appended faad=1 ffmpeg=1 to the two scons command lines", i have try with or without them but both failed, m4a & mp4 are shown in the library but i can not load them.
I have ffmpeg and ffmpeg2.8 on my system and opening M4A files works.
[Sorry for not understanding well].

You may add "upower" to the build dependencies.

sebalis commented on 2016-06-27 12:39

The version you get from Git these days calls itself 2.1.0-alpha-pre, and with 2.1.0 the program handles M4A/AAC in a stricter way which means that many M4A files will not play even after following romein’s comments below.

I found and did the following in the build file to get things to work:

• appended faad=1 ffmpeg=1 to the two scons command lines, just before “install_root=”
• added 'faad2' 'libmp4v2' to the dependencies list as before

I believe that some ffmpeg dependency should also be registered. I have ffmpeg and ffmpeg2.8 on my system and opening M4A files works. As I am unlikely to ever remove ffmpeg I probably won’t run into trouble even without telling the package manager about the dependency. Browsed the Git source available at briefly to see whether Mixxx comes with its own version of ffmpeg but didn’t find anything. I did find a source comment that says “Supported version are FFmpeg 0.11-2.x and Avconv 0.8.x-11.x | FFmpeg is multimedia library that can be found | Avconv is fork of FFmpeg that is used mainly in Debian and Ubuntu that can be found”.
