FYI: When I built it just now, it failed until I installed qt5-svg. Might be a new dependency.

'/usr/share/vlc/lua' is missing the 'http' directory containing the html/other sources for for the web interface, which is consequently broken.

A quick workaround is to manual copy the sources from 'vlc-git/src/vlc/share/lua/http'.

ellipticaldoor: Were you able to resolve your issue? Your error isn't related to this package but a failure of the libtoolize binary.

I can't compile it, getting the following error

autoreconf: running: aclocal -I m4 --force -I m4
autoreconf: configure.ac: tracing
autoreconf: running: libtoolize --copy --force
/usr/bin/libtoolize: /usr/bin/libtoolize: cannot execute binary file
autoreconf: libtoolize failed with exit status: 126
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
Aborting...

iexcel: Updated the PKGBUILD to use https

iexcel commented on 2017-08-25 20:09

@andrewSC, would you be able to use https instead of git as source due to firewall restrictions at work?

Basically, it means a change in the PKGBUILD:

from
git://git.videolan.org/vlc.git

to
git+https://git.videolan.org/git/vlc.git
or
git+https://github.com/videolan/vlc.git

yurividal: Good catch--since the pkg already has a dep for wayland I've added the --enable-wayland flag to the pkgbuild.

yurividal commented on 2017-08-10 16:18

Does not work on Wayland. I think it needs the --enable-wayland
flag while compiling

If anyone has trouble getting VLC to compile with GCC 7.x, and the error is related to libebml, make sure to rebuild libebml using GCC 7.x to resolve the ABI incompatibility.

DrosteEffect: That is awesome you were able to get to the bottom of it. Thanks for sharing, I'm sure people who have this issue in the future will thank you :)
