For version you could use from opera codec here:

If you have "no sound" problem when playing video or audio, you could try to run "flashpeak-slimjet" script with "--no-sandbox" flag.

If you have youtube high cpu usage problem because of sw.js service worker problem (you can check it with slimjet taskmanager), you could try to block service worker with "Reject Service Worker" extension.

Version 29x has problems with streaming videos, and the suggestion on the website about ffmpeg has ceased working. Previous releases didn't had such problem. The same thing happens on Debian also, so don't fiddle much with your system.

@dalto: Thank you, the snapshot method worked just fine in building the package. This is a secondary browser for me, but I like to keep it on hand if for some reason I think FF nightly is not working on a particular site. It's a pity that they do not update the codebase very often. Turbo downloader, search box and built in video downloader are nice features.

@jrichard326, that isn't really the correct way to build an AUR package. It only works for packages without additional files.

You really should either git clone the package or download the snapshot. Then you can call makepkg.

I was able to build it by removing the reference to "license" in source and in the package section of the PKGBUILD. I typically run makepkg -cs --skipchecksums in the folder where the PKGBUILD was copied to.

@jrichard326, it is working fine here. How are you trying to build it? Did you download all the files or only the PKGBUILD? Downloading only the PKGBUILD will not work.

When I try to build, I get this error:

==> ERROR: LICENSE was not found in the build directory and is not a URL.

@sankadub, That libglesv2 error is "normal" it happens even on supported platforms.

What isn't normal is those audio errors. I am not sure what, specifically, is causing those. It happens on Arch as well. Most likely, the version of slimjet is not compatible with current libraries in Arch.

Since this is a binary package provided by flashpeak, unless someone knows of a workaround, the fix will need to come from upstream.

@punkrockguy318 Those gitkeep files are part of the official package from flashpeak.

You might want to report that upstream.
