Tried it. Fails with h265. Any ideas?

[vapoursynth] Script evaluation failed:

In case anyone also saw SVPManager closes itself without GUI showing up, and the last line in log (you can find it in ~/.local/share/SVP4/logs/) is [I]: Video: reading OpenCL info

You might want to check if clinfo gives correct output. In my case, the offending package was intel-oneapi-compiler-shared-opencl-cpu, as I am using an AMD CPU. Check Arch WiKi OpenCL to ensure you only have those opencl libraries related to your hardware. Don't forget to kill all existing SVPManager process before another attempt to run it.

The custom licenses needs to be installed into /usr/share/licenses/svp-bin/.

Also, some libraries in /opt/svp/ are unstripped, but this might be intentionally and needed.

According to namcap, the following dependencies are missing:

  • python-pycryptodomex
  • python-keyring
  • python-websockets
  • python-mutagen
  • python-pycryptodome
  • youtube-dl
  • python-xattr

Thanks for maintaining!

@phiresky You still need a co-maintainer?

Btw you need to add 'svp' to conflicts and replaces :)

Hey @phiresky

how about putting them on ipfs?

You can just use a public http gateway like this from cloudflare ( as link.

Half a gigabyte of storage if free, on :)

I'd be happy to do it. If you give me perms.

Here is the new PKGBUILD anyhow

I tried updating my binary-rehosting thing to prevent 404 errors, but I guess I hit the repository limit for GitHub Gists so I can't fix that (for now).

C0rn3j commented on 2021-10-05 17:56 (UTC)

I am down, also from your maintained packages I use qdirstat, so would be up for that too.

vapoursynth deprecated .get_core. Therefore script/generate.js needs a patch to use vs.core and core.num_threads = instead. (or fix version of vapoursynth ^^)
