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

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 :)

andrewSC: The issue is an incompatibility with openpht-ffmpeg, which puts older headers in /usr/local/include. Nothing to do with this package in particular, but I figured I'd post just in case anyone else encounters this obscure problem.

DrosteEffect: When I bump versions every week I build locally and install to test it's a valid build. I just rebuilt this package and it passed again. I would double check that your ffmpeg package is up to date and try to build again.

rcrath: Just built without issue and bumped the version of the pkgbuild. Are you still having issues?

rcrath commented on 2017-03-31 08:29

getting error error: file owned by 'vlc-git' and 'vlc-plugin-fluidsynth-git': 'usr/lib/vlc/plugins/codec/'
will report to vlc-plugin-fluidsynth-git too

Bermond: Thanks for the comment :) The reason why I specified wayland explicitly is in the event mesa drops wayland as a dep (probably not likely) we would have issues in this package. I chose to be explicit rather than implicit here.
