alucryd, ffmpeg-full is ok for some but IMHO bloated with functionality not required for most users. It takes a lot of dependencies (substantial portion of which is from AUR) and hell of a lot of time to build.

Is this really needed? ffmpeg-full includes libfdk-aac.

Even if their claim about quality at 128kbps was accurate, i'd still be using fdk-aac, because my primary usage involves encoding to AAC-LC in lowest VBR mode (-vbr 1).

Rumor has it that the newer version of Native FFmpeg AAC encoder provides the best quality and libfdk_aac could be removed. https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/Encode/AAC
But in fact, that statement is a bit "too loud" :).

Native FFmpeg AAC has been improved but it is still worse than fdk. In addition, according to my tests it became mush slower than it was.
Not to mention the fact that Native FFmpeg AAC algorithm in ffmpeg 2.8.5 stable is OLD yet.

@korrode, I have done this already, unless you're referring to something else (https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/commit/?h=ffmpeg-libfdk_aac&id=c431c03750a1d74750f64a2861c9a4851e6a092c)

Thank you for the advice, but the problem wasn't that I didn't see the upstream change, the problem was that I botched the merge.

'libvidstab.so' needs to be added to depends as per Arch main package.

I'd suggest checking commits to the Arch package prior to updating this package and porting them all in:
https://projects.archlinux.org/svntogit/packages.git/log/trunk?h=packages/ffmpeg

I encounter "ERROR: vidstab not found using pkg-config" when vid.stab (from extra) isn't installed. So either that should be added as a dependency, or "--enable-libvidstab" should be removed from the configure options.

Please include this patch as in the main package:
https://projects.archlinux.org/svntogit/packages.git/tree/trunk/ffmpeg-2.8.1-libvpxenc-remove-some-unused-ctrl-id-mappings.patch?h=packages/ffmpeg

There is no more correct method than that due to binary repo packages VS working with package source files on AUR.

Probably the 'easiest' method for most users (as opposed to uninstalling this ffmpeg package, which for many users would require using -Rdd because lots of stuff depends on ffmpeg) is to do the system update by performing:
pacman -Syu ffmpeg

...which will install the normal ffmpeg and do the update successfully, and then once the update is done one can re-build and install this package again.

When you try to update libx265, which has been updated, you will be greeted by an error. Note that a fresh install should be fine.

I do not know how to solve this correctly (the incorrect way is to uninstall this package, update x265, then reinstall this package). Upstream rebuilt against a newer x265 and doesn't have this concern of requiring downstream to be able to upgrade across the library change.
