@Ketchup901: First, you need to remove the old package by running sudo pacman -R ffmpeg-compat-57, run an update (sudo pacman -Syu) and go back to the directory which you cloned this repository (assuming you used git) and run makepkg -fsi. This should rebuild the package properly.

Prevents update of libvpx:

:: installing libvpx (1.8.0-1) breaks dependency '' required by ffmpeg-compat-57

@Plailect do a clean build (makepkg -f)

I am currently getting the following trying to install this:

:: unable to satisfy dependency '' required by ffmpeg-compat-57

This seems to be caused by the recent update to libx265.

@applebloom Yes it is for programs that require these libraries during runtime. I originally set it up for Atom if I remember correctly, I used the git version of ffmpeg which provided newer version libraries than the program looked for. Therefor I created this package as I figured other people would probably run into the same issue as me. I already stopped using the program and thus this package, but it is here for whoever still requires it.

@SonnyX Thanks for explaining. So this package is for programs that are already built and just need the so files to link with?

@applebloom You are right, ffmpeg3.4 can also be installed next to other ffmpeg packages since it renames the ffmpeg binary, he should probably update his provides to include ffmpeg3.4. In that case you can see this package as the minimal version compared to a full install of ffmpeg. The pkgconfig folder provided by ffmpeg and the includes are unnecessary to the targeted programs. I see that your use case was for the mplayer2, the package ffmpeg3.4 fits your needs better in the case of mplayer2 which uses ffmpeg as a build dependency.

@applebloom This package differs from ffmpeg3.4 in the way that it does not provide ffmpeg. It provides a specific version of ffmpeg libraries (version 57) required by specific programs. This can be installed along with ffmpeg version 4.0.3 as an example.

How does this package differ from ffmpeg3.4, also on AUR?

.SRCINFO ... pkgver = 3.4.2 pkgrel = 2 ...

But in PKGBUILD here ... pkgver=3.4.2 pkgrel=1 ...

So forming package name after building gives 3.4.2-1 instead of 3.4.2-2, pacman thinks its not an update, but a reinstall of the same package version.
