While trying to install it, I get the following error:

"failed retrieving file 'python2-pyqt4-4.12.1-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz' from ftp.linux.org.tr : The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found"

Thank You.

If you do not want to take the work, consider just submitting a deletion request, since writing the PKGBUILD new from scratch seems more feasible, if someone else at some point wants to re-bring the software to the AUR.

Depenbdency qt is outdated. You need to specify, depending on the Qt version, qt4 or qt3 or, in case of Qt version 5, the individual Qt5-packages needed, e.g. qt5-base.

There is no package qt anymore, and also there is no package qt5.

For me, it builds with qt4, so change qt to qt4 in the dependency array.

Also, please add a pkgver()-function.

Furthermore, getmediumurl (http://pypi.python.org/pypi/GetMediumURL) is needed -- there does not seem to be an Arch Linux/ AUR package for this yet, so it needs to be created.

Then, it is recommended to get the source via the source=([...])-variable in the PKGBUILD. SVN is supported (source=("svn+svn://svn.sv.gnu.org/watchvideo") or similar). Then, PKGBUILD needs also a checksum entry (sha256sums=([...])) for the source-entry. Since the latest revision from SVN is downloaded, enter 'SKIP'.

And, the PKGBUILD requires nowadays a package()-function. It is not there!

Please rework the PKGBUILD thoroughly. It is not working right now and in a mess.

.. and then, after I reworked the PKGBUILD for myself up to a point where I could build the software, after building and installing it, calling watchvideo_gui gives the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/sbin/watchvideo_gui", line 11, in <module>
    load_entry_point('WatchVideo==2.0', 'gui_scripts', 'watchvideo_gui')()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py", line 480, in load_entry_point
    return get_distribution(dist).load_entry_point(group, name)

    return ep.load()

  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/watchvideo/watchvideo_gui.py", line 51, in <module>
    from watchvideo.ui_main import Ui_MainWindow
ImportError: No module named ui_main

Also, watchvideo_cli does not work; calling it with a valid youtube video gives:

No valid links found.

Maybe this is because of missing getmediumurl or similar?

Package is broken right now.

OMFG, this PKGBUILD is creepy= =
At least you should add the package "getmediumurl" and "python-urlreader" to depends.
