Quick note that ffmpeg2.8 now updates libass, libbluray and x265 to versions incompatible with current version of ffmpeg-libfdk_aac.

Note that latest libass, libbluray and x265 which require the rebuild are still in testing.

@korrode Thanks for pointing this out.

AFAIK, it is illegal to distribute ffmpeg, with all it's various GPL'd components, built with fdk-aac.
"The license of libfdk_aac is not compatible with the GPL, so the GPL does not permit distribution of binaries containing incompatible code when GPL-licensed code is also included. Therefore this encoder have been designated as "non-free", and you cannot download a pre-built ffmpeg that supports it. This can be resolved by compiling ffmpeg yourself."

So Martchus although an AUR package (where the end user is actually building it themself) is fine, your binary package is likely illegal to distribute.

Here a link to current version (usually updated faster than here):

I also increase pkgrel every time when a rebuild is required (due to updated dependencies in official repos).

Netcdf 4.4.1-2 update changed to, which breaks ffmpeg. Everyone experiencing this error need to rebuild this package.
Bumping to 3.1.4-3 (upstream) should prevent people to get it.

@daboka Yes. It is not something I can control. Please read the earlier comments on this matter (from October 2015).

I get this error while trying to update with yaourt:
:: ffmpeg-libfdk_aac: installing x265 (2.1-1) breaks dependency ''

The ffmpeg package in the official repo already depends on Could you update this?

I added the patch. I was getting annoyed of it not building.

@gabor_zoka: I am trying to stay in sync with the upstream PKGBUILD as much as possible. I do agree this is annoying.
