Without openssl-1.0 it doesn't run, so rather it should be added to depends.

@everyone If you want to update the package in an "easy" way, just follow these steps:

  1. use you AUR Package Manager as regular to install the package as if it was the first time, for example, using trizen:

trizen -S 4kvideodownloader

  1. When asked if you want to modify the PKGBUILD, choose "yes"

  2. Once in the PKBUILD edit the next line like this:


and then change the first line from the:




  1. Press Ctrl + O to save the file.

  2. Press Ctrl + X to exit nano (the program where the file was opened).

  3. Just follow the next steps as usual and the program will be updated.


In future updates yo can do the following, it may work the same:

in the line:


just change the version for the last version available, for example, this last version was 4.7.3-1, but as the PKGBUILD doesn't accept the hyphen symbol (-), I had to change it to

after changing the pkgver line just save the file, as we can't know what's the sha256sum of the package yet, and continue the installation as normal, in this case the package will be downloaded but there will be an error, as the sha256sum won't match from the package won't match the one in the PKGBUILD, but now you have the package saved in /tmp/your-AUR-Package-Manager-your-user-name/4kvideodownloader/, mine in this case was /tmp/trizen-my-user-name/4kvideodownloader/. Inside this folder copy (Ctrl + Shift + C, on the terminal) the whole name of the package ending with .tar.bz2 and open a terminal inside this same folder (DO NOT open it as root) and type the sha256sum command and paste the name of the package (Ctrl + Shift + V, on the terminal) so it should look like this:

sha256sum 4kvideodownloader_4.7.3.1_amd64.tar.bz2

press ENTER and it must give you a string of numbers and letters like the one I used that looks like this:


just copy that line and try reinstalling 4kvideodownloader again and change the two lines as I mentioned before with the new information you got now.

@mozzi32 Just install the .deb from the official site. That's what I do.

This pkg has not been fully maintained for a while.
