I erased in indent in line 40 of the PKGBUILD, in front of the mkdir command and it built for me with makepkg -s.

@maclargehuge I have 5.1 audio over HMDI working without any issues

Still won't build; I have the same issue as @joehillen

says that the build dir doesn't exist (line 46) despite it clearly being there. Not sure what the issue is.

For me the compilation failed because I didn't have `rhash` installed. Maybe add that to the dependencies?

$ mkdir ~/.cache/pacaur/plex-media-player/plex-media-player- && cd ~/.cache/pacaur/plex-media-player/ && makepkg -i

Row 40 in PKGBUILD is indented too much.

Can we get some optdepends for hardware decoding in here? (vdpau? vaapi?) What does this support?

This seems to be ignoring changes to the icon in the .desktop file and ignoring any icon themes. Anybody had any luck with this?

Is anybody using 5.1 surround in this successfully? I finally got a 5.1 system and I can't figure out surround out of this software - I get no output on any setting. It works fine in the Windows build and also 5.1 output works using other software such as VLC in Arch. I'm using optical out (S/PDIF) if it matters.

I got it to work by editing ~/.conan/settings.yml and adding 7.1 to the gcc version:

version: ["7.1", "4.1", "4.4", "4.5", "4.6", "4.7", "4.8", "4.9", "5.1", "5.2", "5.3", "5.4", "6.1", "6.2", "6.3"]

I'm using the clean-chroot-manager to build packages. If anyone else is using that, to get the build working edit /build/.conan/settings.yml inside the chroot as described above. Then copy over your plex-media-player AUR folder with PKGBUILD to /build in the chroot, arch-chroot into the chroot and run

sudo -u builduser makepkg

in /build/plex-media-player
