now ok for dbus problem but the error:
-> Installing python-pychromecast6 will remove: python-pychromecast, python-pychromecast (python-pychromecast6)
python-pychromecast can't be used?

python2-dbus 1.2.16-3 has been removed from the [extra] repository.

@yannleretaille Why don't you add this fork as a new Aur package?

yannleretaille commented on 2021-03-05 21:12

There's a new fork available that adds proper python 3 support, uses the newer version of pychromecast and includes various other fixes:

Here's a PKGBUILD for the latest release (0.6.1):

Here's a user unit file if someone needs it. --port 0 makes it use the first "free" port [Unit] Description=PulseAudio DLNA client

[Service] ExecStart=/usr/bin/pulseaudio-dlna --port 0

Apparently this is caused by a change in Python 3.9. The maintainer of python-pychromecast6 just added a patch to that package and now everything works again. woohoo! :-)

After running fine for a long time, today I had to reinstall this package because a lot of other python libs were updated. Including python-pychromecast6 and python-casttube. So all dependencies are up to date. Now I cannot stream to chromecast anymore because, the following error appears:

12-06 18:14:45 pulseaudio_dlna.pulseaudio                     INFO

Does seem like a version mismatch somewhere, does anyone have an idea?

funk-electric, install to fulfill the dep.

funk-electric commented on 2020-12-02 21:13

I tried to install it on the current arch linux version (2th of december 2020)

==> Using [aur] repository -> pulseaudio-dlna-python3-git: (none) -> 0.5.2.r152.gb0db813-2 -> python-casttube: (none) -> 0.2.1-2 -> python-pychromecast: (none) -> 7.5.1-1 ==> Retrieving package files From = [up to date] master -> origin/master From = [up to date] master -> origin/master From = [up to date] master -> origin/master

and it ends up with:

 invalid node: python-pychromecast 7.5.1 (required: <7)

Unfortunately I have no idea how i could fix this? Has anyone an idea how i can get it running?

It could be that this is incorrectly tagged, but the correct version on the python3 branch is 0.6.0.r739.b0db813.
