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.

@caleb it builds from Git tag from Github, how is this URL unversioned? The tags on GitHub should not be modified after publishing. How is it not installing the right version then? The md5 sums of source files for kernel modules all matches, if you compare them from the package and right git tag.

Please use the Github sources with taggged versions, this is using an unversioned upstream URL that breaks the checksum on update and currently isn't installing the version the package claims to be.

@M.Srikanth, we are still working on a solution to get sound working. Simply adding snd-aloop to droidcam.conf makes the module load but snd-aloop also needs to be configured to use the loopback soundcard, which the ID of changes when you remove/add other soundcards. The solution provided by droidcam sets the ID at install time but this very error prone.

Can you add snd-aloop to droidcam.conf

I have some plans on bringing this to the official repos, but not completely sold on this yet. I'll switch to git sources, and, as much as I hate using epochs, I don't see a way around it.

The versioning come from the way upstream used to release on their official website, it had that versioning. Since they switched to using only "latest", I have been arbitrarily increasing the pkgver.

now ok :-))))

I fixed the source URL for 1.2, please make sure you're downloading new source archive when building.

M.Srikanth commented on 2020-06-01 10:15

@caleb,I thought that it was downloading the same zip as in but now I realised it is different(by binary zip I meant the contents of the zip is a droidcam binary). (But still that issue remains with the zip from though)

EDIT:It actually was the same thing as in until 1 hour ago

caleb commented on 2020-06-01 10:13

The sources for this seem to be available here. Since the sources are available I think this needs to use them — or get renamed as -bin. I think you'll need an epoch to downgrade the version, but where is the 6.x versioning coming from anyway?

caleb commented on 2020-06-01 10:07

@M.Srikanth The zip file itself is binary (all compressed archive formats are) but the contents in the sources from this repository. Of course it has has a Makefile!
