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.

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

@caleb,I thought that it was downloading the same zip as in dev4apps.net 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 dev4apps.net though)

EDIT:It actually was the same thing as in dev4apps.net until 1 hour ago

@M.Srikanth The zip file itself droidcam-1.2.zip is binary (all compressed archive formats are) but the contents in the sources from this repository. Of course it has has a Makefile!

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"
