@dr460nf1r3 Package is building fine. This nvcc question was discussed quite a couple of times in ffmpeg-full-git, so please scroll down in that page and read my comments there.

Building fails at checking for nvcc, so there is probably some missing dependency (maybe because of building in clean chroot)

@Erde I have no problems downloading the source files. No errors.

@andrej libilbc got a soname bump, and it is user responsibility to rebuild their AUR packages that depends on it, like this package (see the Note on the linked Wiki section). When you use an AUR package, you should keep track of the needed rebuilds. As you can see, your bug report was closed on the Arch Linux official bug tracker since it's not a bug.

This currently breaks guvcview due to a missing libilbc version.

@j77h AUR helpers are not supported, use makepkg. amf-headers was pushed to the [extra] official repository and will be automatically pulled by makepkg when using the '-s' option. Regarding the nvcc error, this was discussed quite a couple of times in ffmpeg-full-git, so please scroll down in that page and read my comments there. If ffmpeg is already installed, it will be removed by pacman during installation because this package conflicts with it (see 'conflicts' on the PKGBUILD - or at the top of this web page). I could not understand what you mean by 'rebuild this properly from existing compiled packages', since makepkg already requires that all dependencies would be compiled and installed.

Thanks for providing this, but it didn't quite work for me. Probably due to my inexperience.

At the beginning :

:: warning: Following package cannot be found in AUR:

Solved by editing PKGBUILD and changing amf-headers to amf-headers-git.

At the end : (after choosing to skip PGP key check, as one was missing)

==> Starting build()...
  -> Running ffmpeg configure script...
ERROR: failed checking for nvcc.

in ~/.cache/pikaur/build/ffmpeg-full/src/ffmpeg-4.3.1/ffbuild/config.log:

./configure: line 983: nvcc: command not found.

nvcc does exist, at /opt/cuda/bin/nvcc.

In PKGBUILD I had changed the install path to /opt; did that change the location of cuda, and cause this problem?

I expected installing to /opt would allow ffmpeg-full to live alongside my existing standard ffmpeg installation, but pikaur asked me to remove the standard one before starting to build ffmpeg-full.

Is there a way to have pikaur rebuild this properly from existing compiled packages (to avoid repeating the big cuda download), perhaps by editing PKGBUILD?

All I wanted was libzvbi (in addition to the standard build), but as I didn't find a straightforward description of how to compile ffmpeg on Arch, I thought installing ffmpeg-full would be quicker.

Perhaps before we start we should see a warning that cuda pulls in a download bigger than 2.5 GB! ;)

@amatwkgs I added back the rockchip-mpp support. To be honest I already saw this but was still waiting a bit more to see if the repository would stay public for a longer time. Thanks for pointing this.

Regarding this commit, it looks like the upstream repository for rockchip mpp is available again at the same URL.
