Since this is a -git package, just rebuild and you should be good to go @Codfractal ;)

Cheers !

@willemw castero 8.0 has been released a few days ago, could you please update the package ? Many thanks :)

@MagicAndWires: I think upstream simply needs to stop requiring python-vlc, the reasoning behind keeping it seems a bit silly imo (see If you're okay in python, I would recommend just trying to get a PR in that makes all vlc stuff completely optional, instead of putting in effort on this PKGBUILD. If I find time this week and dig the castero app, I might try and implement said PR myself.

Thanks. Updated the upstream URL.

In general, one way to prevent vlc from being installed on your system is to create and install an empty/dummy package which "provides" and "conflicts" with "vlc". The advantage is that this will work not only with castero-git but with any package that has vlc as a dependency.

Edit: note castero-git also depends on python-vlc.

Also, please update the upstream url to the github project page as the current link has been removed.

Note that this package technically only needs the mpv or vlc media player.

Considering vlc is a quite heavy-duty (and in imho bloated) player to simply play some audio files users who might not want to use this particular player can safely remove the vlc and it specific dependencies with the --nodeps and --recursive flags. python-vlc is necessary for castero (which unfortunately has vlc as its makedepend) so for now it is necessary to keep that package and manually remove vlc at every install.

I'll test some things as to whether the software to run properly, or whether it's just due to the python-setup configuration, and depending on the results I'll try to make a mpv-only package.

@cheezsteak: Thanks. Fixed and updated.

I was only able to run castero after changing dependency python-pympv to python-mpv. If someone else can confirm that bug it should be updated. Thank you.

@Kyatik: Not out-of-date. You need to reinstall (or update with --devel) to update the package.

@Kr1ss: Thanks. Updated.
