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.

droidcam-1.2.zip is a binary zip. But for some reason it has a Makefile (which fails).Also the directory layout is changed and support for audio is added.So the PKGBUILD should be rewritten.

The current PKGBUILD is downloading the wrong source file from the Github repo (the correct one is 1.2.zip). The following package download string (+ redownload and rehashing) fixes the build failure that miss_barfin got for me:

"${pkgname}-${pkgver}.zip::https://github.com/aramg/${pkgname}/archive/${pkgver}.zip"

Thanks for insights @malbeth. It is indeed the case. If found that the PKGBUILD wiki page says, that downloaded source file must have unique name, so I changed it now

AwesomeHaircut, again we only have to change the filename. I'll make a commit with the change sometime tomorrow. I'll also look into the sound script.

Anyone setting SRCDEST with makepkg will have similar issues.

Neither Yay or any other aur helper are officially supported. The makepkg command is the only way I test and only way i support.

Like Foxboron said, this package fails to update if using an AUR manager with a cache (like yay), since the droidcam.zip file name never changes (doesn't include the pkg version) the latest file doesn't get downloaded and the build fails at the checksum check.

Please update the PKGBUILD file with his solution.
