Please consider switching to https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/yt-dlp-git as yt-dlp is actively maintained.

@dreieck mopidy-youtube does not depend on a specific version of youtube-dl, why does the AUR package? https://github.com/natumbri/mopidy-youtube/blob/04178a4ebffb98bfa6ba60e2f0abbb8f06003195/setup.cfg#L53

@Mettacrawer So the package works just like it should? Please read about how VCS AUR packages work

Can you please add =${pkgver} to the provides entry?

There is a package which has a versioned dependency on youtube-dl, and as it is now it won't accept youtube-dl-git as providing what it needs:

error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: removing youtube-dl breaks dependency 'youtube-dl>=2021.06.01' required by mopidy-youtube

Regards!

Please! :)

@ThePirate42 No? The upstream largely has been though, you might want to look at https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/yt-dlp-git/

ThePirate42 commented on 2021-12-10 08:31 (UTC)

Has this package been abandoned?

graysky commented on 2021-11-28 12:37 (UTC)

@disastro - recommend you add this PR to the prepare array: https://github.com/ytdl-org/youtube-dl/pull/30184

disastro commented on 2021-02-24 04:44 (UTC)

pkg_resources in setuptools used to be a runtime dependency that is now superseded by importlib in the stdlib so yes you are correct. I'll push an update within the hour

gesh commented on 2021-02-23 21:55 (UTC)

Shouldn't python-setuptools be a makedep, not a dep?

disastro commented on 2021-01-18 13:36 (UTC)

You don't, the package maintainers like me do. What would need changing though? This is a -git package the version does not need bumping.
