Missing qt6-5compat in depends.

taglib 2.0 build fixed!

patlefort commented on 2024-01-29 18:03 (UTC)

Looks like it doesn't compile with current taglib:

/pkgbuild/out/qmplay2/src/QMPlay2-src-23.10.22/src/gui/TagEditor.cpp:290:32: error: no type named 'AttachedPictureFrame' in namespace 'TagLib::ID3v2'
                        ID3v2::AttachedPictureFrame &pictureFrame = *(ID3v2::AttachedPictureFrame *)frameList.front();

yeah, that's basically the same as i wrote in

Update: one issue with this is that you cannot really have homedir mounted with noexec (for extra security). It would be nice to have a way to chose (managed by QMPlay2 or system).

QMPlay2 doesn't use system-wide youtube-dl (and now yt-dlp) for years. It's better to keep it up-to-date.

This commin ( only changed youtube-dl to yt-dlp.

It's better to use qmplay2-git AUR package to have updated software!

jose1711 commented on 2021-10-19 21:32 (UTC)

OK, my bad. As per qmplay2 does not use yt-dlp installed in the system but rather downloads it itself and places it in ~/.config/QMplay2 (which is kinda weird in Linux world). Hence ignore my comment. And thank you for maintaining this.

Is the path of youtube-dl actually customizable? If not one needed to create a symlink (which would be rather cumbersome).

jose1711 commented on 2021-10-19 11:48 (UTC)

could you please add yt-dlp to optdepends? thanks

The make dependency xorgproto is missing. Besides, packages within the group base-devel should not be mentioned explicitly as dependency.

Can you add aarch64 to archs? It builds and is also part of the previously mentioned binary repo.
