I made the necessary changes to my files here:

Shouldn't you have updated the contents of the patch as well?
Inside the patch still references 1.0.7:
diff -ura package.orig/vdhcoapp-1.0.7/app/converter.js
diff -ura package.orig/vdhcoapp-1.0.7/app/native-autoinstall.js

Wouldn't this actually cause the patch to not be applied?

Hi, Thanks for adding me as co-maintainer.

I've updated the package. Now it's building from source and I also changed the executable name to only /usr/bin/vdhcoapp.
The ffmpeg dependency is to convert the videos directly.

Please test it. If you can build for i686 please do as I can't at the moment.

Hi, this package is not working here.
If you look at the extension settings in Firefox, it'll say that's verifying, but it doesn't work.

I spent a lot of time trying to make it work without the bundled ffmpeg.
You have to patch 2 files and build from source.

If you want, you can put me as co-maintainer and I'll update the package.
