@F1iX @wget Does installing python-pychromecast-git not solve the problem of not finding Chromecast devices? Things work perfectly fine for me without installing pulseaudio-dlna, and I'm hesitant to add that as an optional dependency since it is no longer maintained upstream.

I got No devices found! [...] Killed until installing pulseaudio-dlna. Now works like a charm!

I have made quick changes in order to build the package and make it work (the solution was pulseaudio-dlna which allowed me to detect my Google Nest Hub).

If this is useful for others passing by...

Could the changes suggested by frukt be made?

gi is definitely not required, that should instead be python-gobject.

Hey frukt sorry for taking so long to reply... I agree with the changes you want to make but I don't use this package anymore so I'm going to disown it. Feel free to adopt it if you can/want.

It seems like a bunch of the declared dependencies are at most optional. The mkchromecast package [1] has a much slimmer dependencies list and could be used as a template. In particular, python-pyqt5 seems wildly excessive (pulling in QT5 for a CLI app?), and I removed a few others before building, like gi.

That said, thanks for maintaining the package!

@applebloom Thanks, should be fixed now.

There's an issue that I can't update python2-mutagen because of this package. I think this is because the latest python2-mutagen doesn't provide mutagen dependency this package requires. I'm not sure how to resolve this.

Thanks @chappjc, updated.

The "devel" branch seems to be removed. Probably build from master now.
