Ah, great, thanks, it looked like they had taken the server offline for a couple of days due to the 3.0.0 release, glad the source files are back up!

@maltklaus Asked at #videolan and they instantly fixed it. So it should work again.

Something major is wrong with VLC's nightly server, it serves an HTML file instead of the source - this vlc AUR update should be pulled until the server is fixed...

@bm456 Note that there's an script which allows to update this package automatically. So there's no reason to flag this package unless this script does not work anymore (eg. because some URLs or dependencies changed).

Okay I managed to get it compling I had libaom-git installed that provided the headers that make the build fail. After removing that package the build went ahead and passed.

I don't have aom installed either, but it seems to be needed to build. Could it be added a dependency?

@shrinathk This package is built with a little bit more features enabled than the regular package. Those 'missing' dependencies are AUR packages as well.

I think the dependencies need to be updated. Got the following error while installing.

[user@user-laptop vlc-nightly]$ makepkg -sri ==> Making package: vlc-nightly 4.0.0v20171220-1 (Thu Jan 11 16:55:50 IST 2018) ==> Checking runtime dependencies... ==> Installing missing dependencies...

@Dark-Sky I have aom not installed in my build environment and hence never saw this error. If you don't need aom support in vlc, it is probably the best to do the same.

It appears that my /usr/include/aom headers are out of date. I tried to install aom from AUR but in the first place I do not think the author has actually compiled it; he has 3 mistakes in his PKGBUILD. After I got it compiled it would not install because several vp9 and such was already installed so evidently the aom headers are also installed in another package. Long story short I disabled lines 211, 212 and 214 in vlc-nightly/src/vlc-4.0.0-dev/modules/codec/aom.c and it went ahead and compiled.

// case AOM_CS_BT_2020_CL: // case AOM_CS_BT_2020_NCL: // break;
