There are currently two conflicting ffmpeg modules for python. This package provides the old implementation.

  • pypi/ffmpeg-python - Old implementation. Development has apparently been abandoned.

    • aur/python-ffmpeg-python
    • aur/python-ffmpeg-python-git
  • pypi/python-ffmpeg - New implementation. May not be compatible with the old module. May have fewer features.

    • aur/python-python-ffmpeg
    • aur/python-python-ffmpeg-git

@xiota, you can now add back the conflicts=(python-ffmpeg) entry.

And please remove the replaces field. It should not be used on AUR at any time, as per Arch guidelines.

I've never actually seen yay or paru or pacman take the replaces field into account when an AUR package is built locally and installed from local source.

This field might only have effect when a pacman package is hosted in an Arch-type binary repo and when pacman grabs the package from there.

But this is again a reason for you not to have this replaces field: if it were taken into account, it would intrude upon users who have the new python-python-ffmpeg installed - then pacman would want to replace even that with this package.

@MarsSeed I decided to retain the github url because this package does use the source tarball from github. The PyPI tarball is missing components.

@xiota, I suggest you change the Upstream URL to the official PyPI page of this package:

https://pypi.org/project/ffmpeg-python/

Git repo URLs / repo names can be misleading. They are not always the same as the PyPI name. And also the repo names and URLs can change.

PyPI names are therefore much more authoritative. And they correspond with what gets installed via pip install and other official Python package manager tools.

Updated so that the package will continue building after check failures. Tested in a clean chroot.

No tests are skipped because they provide useful information regarding functional changes. Tests that are currently failing:

  • test_pipe
  • test__probe

The developer of the upstream project is currently MIA. So the broken tests are unlikely to be fixed anytime soon.
