@Bitals thanks, fixed

mkdir emoji in prepare() has been giving me headaches for sometime now when rebuilding. Please change it to mkdir -p emoji to not fail if dir already exists.

Quickmedia no longer depends on yt-dlp for youtube. Youtube videos should now start faster and buffer much faster.

In source=( "${pkgname}-${pkgver}.tar.gz::"

you're changing the "r1310.5c854e1" part every time instead of just using ${pkgver} - as you're supposed to (see man). As a result, if you do check aur PKGBUILD updates with your AUR helper, you have to compare the entire URL each time, which is annoying.

@Bitals that's an issue in the mpv package and it has been reported here: but still good to know how to bypass the issue until it has been fixed

wayland-protocols is a dependency, builds after manually installing it.

09:47:39 Package wayland-protocols was not found in the pkg-config search path.
09:47:39 Perhaps you should add the directory containing `wayland-protocols.pc'
09:47:39 to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
09:47:39 Package 'wayland-protocols', required by 'mpv', not found
09:47:39 Packages not found, using global lib...
09:47:39 Dependency mpv in version range >=1.0.0 is missing from pkg-config, trying global lib
09:47:39 Dependency not found in global lib, trying to download from package repository
09:47:39 Failed to build ninja file: No package with the name "mpv" was found

@justcommenting Im not exactly sure what you mean. What variable and what differences? do you mean which git commits the update contains so you can see a git history diff?

justcommenting commented on 2023-01-22 23:57 (UTC)

I agree, this isn't a git package. But, even if you don't change that part, you should at least use a variable in the source= URL so it's easier to track differences on updates.
