I disabled it simply in accordance with the regular VLC package. It appears they disabled it because it was only required for the update check:,

If that's not true for the nightly version anymore we can of course enable it.

I wonder, what is wrong with "libgcrypt" and why it's disabled in the first place

SolarAquarion commented on 2019-05-12 03:28

There may be a dependency on libgcrypt in vlc nightly

to be fair i'm also getting that build and reported it here

Build fails for both this and vlc-git with an un-searchable (no results from duckduckgo, google recaptchas forever and ergo out of the question) errror:

"error: ‘gcry_cipher_hd_t’ was not declared in this scope"

@filthyAUR I've added the flag. It makes sense to disable broken features. I also did that with libfdk_aac support. But I'd like to note that setting up a chroot is very easy (described in the developer Wiki) and worth it.

Since I don't want to go through the hassle of setting up a clean chroot for one failing package out of hundreds, I just add --disable-decklink to the configure options in the PKGBUILD. :)

I was able to build it. A binary repository which is occasionally updated is here, by the way:

I suspect you have a package (likely decklink) installed on your system which gets detected by the build script and used but fails. I recommend to build packages in a clean chroot to avoid such problems.

@Martchus Yes, that actually worked. I no longer get vpx.c errors. However, I get these instead:

access/decklink.cpp:37:10: fatal error: vlc_decklink.h: No such file or directory
make[4]: *** [Makefile:25104: access/libdecklink_plugin_la-decklink.lo] Error 1

The patch for compatibility with the latest libvpx is there for quite a while. One just has to build the latest version by invoking first.
