@Zeioth: Yes, you must temporarily remove ffmpeg update x265 and then rebuild ffmpeg.

Zeioth commented on 2019-11-06 20:50 from 'ffmpeg-libfdk_aac 1:4.2.1-1', prevents the 'extra' package x265 to be updated. There's a conflict.

@bwidawsk please change --enable-libfdk_aac to --enable-libfdk-aac

Version 4.2 has been out for over a week now. Could this be updated soon?

I think you have an error:

You have an underscore but require a hyphen.

Upstream might use Git because it is only a big download for the first time. In any subsequent build you only have to fetch the diff (likely only a few KiB).

By upstream, I mean the PKGBUILD

milaxnuts commented on 2019-01-13 19:01

I am trying to make the most minimal diff against upstream as possible. This does use release tags, not master

with "upstream" you mean ?

there, the first link is /releases/ffmpeg-snapshot.tar.bz2

Development branch snapshots work really well 99% of the time so people are not afraid to use them.

quote from

Users that wish to compile from source themselves are strongly encouraged to consider using the development branch [and not the stable release]

$ curl -sI <> \
| grep ^Content-Length | tr -d $'\r' | cut -d' ' -f2 | numfmt --to=si

11 megabyte ... better than 130 MB, no?

this is ffmpeg-libfdk_aac, not ffmpeg-libfdk_aac-git.

to expand:
when i request ffmpeg-libfdk_aac, then i expect the latest stable release.
when i request ffmpeg-libfdk_aac-git, then i expect the 'bleeding edge' git version, compiled from a shallow clone, cos i only need 10% of the repo. since show no interest in fixing their git server, we could load the 'shallow clone' from microhub:
when i request ffmpeg-libfdk_aac-snapshot, then i expect the 'latest snapshot' version.

@milaxnuts: I completely agree with regard to shallow clone, but again I am trying to make the most minimal diff against upstream as possible. This does use release tags, not master, so I don't understand your first comment.

If you can get upstream to use a shallow clone when it works, I will gladly modify it here.

easier to maintain the diff

please clarify

this is ffmpeg-libfdk_aac, not ffmpeg-libfdk_aac-git.
using the latest git version might break the build
so i would also prefer using the latest stable release.
im sure, new versions and checksums can be updated by bots

ffmpeg-full is also using the stable release

also, doing a full clone of a 130 MB repo,
to only use 10 MB of code, is just wrong
so please just do a 'shallow clone' like

prepare() {
    # shallow clone. depth=1 might be too greedy
    # maybe add: --recurse-submodules --shallow-submodules
    git clone --mirror --depth=50 --branch v4.2 <https://host/path/name.git> name

currently, the server fails to serve a shallow clone

@Niklas - this is mentioned in my commit. It was done to match the "upstream PKGBUILD" to make it easier to maintain the diff. I'm not sure why upstream did it as I agree with your preference for release tarballs.

commit 26942dcf6eb9

upgpkg: ffmpeg 1:4.0.2-1

Note that this follows the upstream package in switching to git for the source files (instead of tarball).
