error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies) :: installing x265 (3.2.1-1) breaks dependency '' required by ffmpeg-headless

In short, for headless setup, use AUR packages:

libva-headless (replaces libva) x264-noffmpeg (replaces x264/libx264)

Install other deps as usual.

libva-headless would reduce the deps even further

.SRCINFO is not updated with last PKGBUILD changess.

Alternatively you can perform a `pacman -Sdd x264' to install the updated version of x264 while ignoring its dependencies. Note that this is a TERRIBLE IDEA, so if you do this and something breaks don't blame me.

@djmattyg007 I think this is what you need: x264-noffmpeg.

Try to build with it.

In order to compile ffmpeg-headless, needs to be present. Unfortunately, this is now provided by the x264 package in the official repos, rather than being provided as a standalone package. In order to install the x264 package, ffmpeg (non-headless) gets installed, which results in graphical packages being installed.

If you're building this package in a container, chroot, etc, then install the package in another environment, the compiled binary won't load, as some dependencies won't get installed.

The only way I can see around this is to install libx264-git from the AUR, which will result in a potentially unstable version of libx264 being installed. To fully resolve this, I think someone is going to have to step up and maintain a dedicated libx264 package in the AUR.

For some reason, when i try to install this, libgl and mesa get pulled, despite not being specified in the PKGBUILD. I can't work out why, but it does seem to make the package pointless...

FFMPEG 4.0 breaks the current stable release of zoneminder, stick with 3.4 if your using it.

Presently, I can build fine, but not install.

warning: cannot resolve "", a dependency of "ffmpeg-headless" :: The following package cannot be upgraded due to unresolvable dependencies: ffmpeg-headless

This is even with libvpx installed. Am I doing something wrong?
