I'm getting the same errors as rajhlinux, and also have no luck with the various patches

No luck with patch for me. Shame this AUR can't be updated to 'just work'...

I got this to build following the direction from an Arch Forum user named "loqs".

This just needs makedepends+=(python libajantv2).

I have tried deactivating Anaconda and exporting the paths 1/2 dozen ways but still no go. I hate Anaconda but I'm too far in to remove any time soon.

I found this link explaining what cmake is doing: This link

@Humorhenker Thanks for the patch! Can confirm it all works fine when using mp4.

Humorhenker commented on 2022-02-07 15:40 (UTC)

@niobium93 i extended the patch to allow setting profile and level for the hevc vaapi encoder aswell. It should work that way but i have not tested it in all variations. However i am just like you unable to create mkv files. Even with the profile and level settings usable. mp4 are no problem however. If anyone got the source of the problem ill be happy to fix it.

Trying to use hevc results in an empty mkv file. H.264 works fine.

According to terminal output it tries using profile: 1 and level: 0, which makes no sense. The options to change the profile and level are missing. With my h.264 settings the profile is reported as 578 and level 42, so I figure the hevc settings should be similar. Also this error appears only when using hevc:
