Just pushed a workaround for the vulkan-headers situation. It's added to makedepends if pkg-config can resolve vulkan when the PKGBUILD is sourced. This should make the dependencies work out without forcing them on people who don't want vulkan at all.

@speak It needs vulkan-headers only if vulkan-icd-loader is installed. The latter comes with the pkg-config file which points to the header, but the former includes the header. I don't think this makes sense and I opened a bug report[1] against the packages a while back but so far it's been ignored. If you don't have either package installed, the build will work fine (but not have Vulkan support) so I don't want to add the depend unconditionally.

This seems to need a dependency to vulkan-headers.

Those trying to install it as it stands, install vulkan-headers before this.

@qmega The issue seems to be my AUR-helper not updating the PKGBUILD along with the files from git, manually building them or removing all old files solved my problem.

@Tralba Definitely not. The PKGBUILD hasn't had anything related to ffmpeg-mpv for a month. Even before that, it referenced "ffmpeg-mpv-git" so unless you've modified your quote something's weird. Are you sure this is the package you're building? And your checkout of it is up to date? Try "git rev-parse HEAD" in the directory with the PKGBUILD. Should say bc3ac332ee6e.

My build fails with "unable to resolve dependency 'ffmpeg-mpv'" although I have ffmpeg-git installed, is that supposed to happen?

@qmega mpv-build-git solves my problem, but there is something wrong with the shaderc-git in the AUR, so I have to remove these lines to build mpv-build-git:




patch -p1 -i "${srcdir}/4933.patch"

It's easy enough to install ffmpeg-git in parallel and avoid having to recompile everything else. All that's needed on this side is a PKG_CONFIG_PATH export in build(). I'm doing that locally with a hacked-up version of the ffmpeg-git package, but it didn't seem worth actually uploading to the AUR; it's not a good solution, but I'm still hoping this situation is temporary. The time may be approaching when I'll have to accept it's not and figure out what to do with this package. (Ideas would be welcome. I'd rather not require ffmpeg-git replacing system ffmpeg.)

Well, mpv just made a release and still depends on unreleased ffmpeg. So let's see what the Community package does.
