Now that was quick. Thanks!

This package appears to be missing a dependency on "python-casttube".

pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'casttube>=0.1.0' distribution was not found and is required by PyChromecast

python2-pychromecast is not usable anymore 'cause support for python2-zeroconf was dropped

Thank you, cleared up. (Commenting so people don't have to compare the dates of the previous comments and last update to know if this has been fixed.)

This has been broken for over a month now btw..

FWIW python-pychromecast-git works

Replace: $pkgbase-$pkgver ---> $_pkgname-$pkgver

Github repo to make it easier to test the proposed fix

Applying the following diff fixed the issue for me (strip the enclosing "```").
