Thsi pkgbuild depends on openpht-ffmpeg but use the internal ffmpeg anyway (-DUSE_INTERNAL_FFMPEG='ON')

I got this building the other day and thought I'd share my findings. First of all, I disabled CEC:

The rest of the fixes I applied upstream as a pull request:

kodi-devel-cec no longer exists on the aur as far as I can tell. Is there a known work around to get this to build? I tried manually installing libcec 3.1.0, but it still complains that it is missing that dep.

Does not build for me.

Right, so it might already be packaged as

mwberry commented on 2017-09-11 02:45 (UTC)

OpenPHT replies on a forked Libcec that it downloads from [1]. Presumably the make logic notices that libcec is already installed so it skips trying to download it. But the copy of libcec installed is not the forked xmbc copy, so there's all sorts of mismatches. I'm still trying to locate where the patched libcec is hosted to see if it is worth setting up a PKGBUILD for it. [1]

@DaMastah it built properly after downgrading libcec to 3.1.0-2

DaMastah commented on 2017-03-07 06:59 (UTC)

Same problem as others : can't compile, error on PeripheralCecAdapter.cpp This program is awesome, please fix

freddierice commented on 2017-01-27 17:18 (UTC)

Add -DENABLE_CEC:BOOL=OFF to the end of the cmake line in PKGBUILD if you do not need CEC support. Then it will build correctly.
