@lambroisie thanks for the report; however, this is due to packages that have never been updated and I am not sure if they will ever be.

This will require quite some time; I am not sure if it will succeed also and right now I am busy a lot, so no promises if/when fixes will be available.

You are free to report issues regarding the packaging here: be aware that sometimes the package will fail to build because of outdated upstream and updated dependency, which will require me some time to test and solve the problem; I do also have life stuff, packaging is a free-time activity.

Info regarding the package

The package uses the sources available at:

https://github.com/popcorn-official/popcorn-desktop

I am aware of the different clones and branches; I do still believe that this code is acceptable (not affected itself from malware).

As the nw.js toolchain provided by the PopcornTime team can not be proven as non-malware easily, this package uses the official nw.js toolchain provided here:

https://dl.nwjs.io/

and uses for additional codecs the prebuilt FFmpeg library provided here:

https://github.com/iteufel/nwjs-ffmpeg-prebuilt/

In addition, the PKGBUILD won't point to the 0.3.10 Git reference but will also include important commits, for e.g. security reasons or providers changes.

0.3.10-12 running without issues for me! :)

@gerardo-junior I can't reproduce such an issue; I tried removing my configuratio but PopcornTime started properly.

@everyone sorry for the multiple updates, but seems that nw.js 0.32.x and its FFmpeg library does not work at all (tested all the versions from 0.32.0 to 0.32.5 but none worked). So, back to old-and-working 0.31.5

popcorntime never starts playing anything (not with butter or vlc); doesnt matter how far the download is (even if complete). I have a build saved with pkgver=9 that works fine, but its prolly caused by some nodejs package update or the 0.32 ffmpeg update (pkgver=9 is build with 0.31).

Opens normally but crashes when I select to play a movie: [11065:11065:0904/212829.286590:ERROR:sandbox_linux.cc(380)] InitializeSandbox() called with multiple threads in process gpu-process.

Still stopped in "init Database .." @ItachiSan

ItachiSan commented on 2018-09-04 13:58

@gerardo-junior should be fixed now.
