created ticket, vlc-git used to build a couple of weeks ago, namely commit 4.0.0-dev-6229-g9868c4be81, or vlc-git-4.0.0.r6467.g2f3f44804e. and the version produces less crashes resp X stalls than the ABS version vlc-3.x.

can you pls remove xosd as dependency? this should not be necessary any more. is not in the vlc package as well.

checking for DVDREAD... no
configure: error: Library dvdread > 6.0.0 needed for dvdread was not found
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
Error making: vlc-git

I had "extra/libdvdread 6.0.0-1" installed

After installing "libdvdread-git & libdvdcss-git" I was able to pass "checking for DVDREAD... yes"

But now getting

configure: error: Library dvdnav > 6.0.0 needed for dvdnav was not found
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
Error making: vlc-git

with "libdvdnav 6.0.0-1" or "libdvdnav-git" installed

update x264 to 155, solved. but, g++: error: unrecognized command line option ‘-Wduplicated-branches’; did you mean ‘-Wduplicated-cond’?

@andrewSC Thank you for fixing this.

Interesting, I pulled that line in the last commit and didn't look much past the package building successfully. I'll add it back in once ff dev edition is done compiling on my machine. Good eye dbermond :) thank you.

Since today I've started to receive this error when upgrading the package (error occurs at system install time when running the post-transaction hooks):

(5/5) Updating the vlc plugin cache...
call to execv failed (No such file or directory)
error: command failed to execute correctly

This error occurs because the files that were installed at /usr/lib/vlc are being installed in /usr/libexec, and the pacman hook cannot find the file /usr/lib/vlc/vlc-cache-gen. I could not find any recent upstream change that may lead to this. It seems to be something Arch/system related, but as far as I can gather I do not have made any change on the system that may cause this. Building the package in a clean chroot also leads to the same error.

I could fix it by adding this to the configure options: --libexecdir='/usr/lib'.
