Manjaro is spam here, and the maintainer already said he can't install a different distribution just to support some users. Manjaro users: Please refrain from making further comments and use Manjaro support channels instead.

@miss_barfin thanks for the heads up. I'm looking into the "install-sound" script right now and it seems to me that it's rather hacky. E.g, if you change number of sound cards in your system, it will break anyway.

The reason the script does not work is because v4l2loopback-dc-dkms installs /etc/modprobe.d/v4l2loopback-dc.conf, instead of /etc/modprobe.d/droidcam.conf. I guess doing sudo ln -s /etc/modprobe.d/v4l2loopback-dc.conf /etc/modprobe.d/droidcam.conf should work around that.

problem, audio doesn't work you need to run "install-sound" script after installation in order to use audio but i can't really do it because it thinks the droidcam isn't installed because it can't find the file "/etc/modprobe.d/droidcam.conf"

There's been lot of changes to this package in the last couple weeks. There's also been changed to droidcam itself. Sorry for the delays and remember we all do this in our free time.

There's been an actual release by the droidcam dev, so hopefully that means things stabilize for now.

We now depend on v4l2loopback-dc-dkms, but now we are also depending on invidian to update that package in time. And it seems like the sha512sums are already outdated...

Can't we just depend on v4l2loopback-dkms instead? Edit: No we can't Droidcam refuses to use that one.

I have unpinned and removed the pinned comment suggesting people to install the make with sudo make install. This is silly. This is a packaging problem where the author does not account for a shared SRCDEST.

This is solved with "${pkgname}-${pkgver}.zip::https://github.com/aramg/${pkgname}/archive/${_pkgver}.zip". Any other workarounds are wrong.

Also with the workaround doesn't work....

i get

Registering webcam device modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'videodev': Invalid argument

EDIT: It worked... I need just to reboot a try again.... Thanks a lot...

Note:Some AUR helpers do not redownload droidcam.zip as it has the same name and then complain it has wrong md5sum
