I'm about to change that.

Once again, pulseaudio is NOT a dependency, alsa-utils provides the necessary libraries.

PKGBUILD updated. I didn't increase the pkgrel because there's no change for those that already installed it.

This is working great for me on Arch64. Made a video call to an officemate who is running 32-bit Windows XP. Since we're in the same office, I was able to confirm. I believe libv4l may be required for some webcams.

After a reboot everything's working. Maybe the modules haven't been loaded correctly after the latest kernel update. So it shouldn't be a dependency issue. I'll clean up the PKGBUILD.

Do you see avatars? My video window is completely black but manveru can see his and my avatar. So he has something I don't and we don't know what it is.

Well no, same problem here. Just a black screen :/

I'll post here if I can figure something out.

I know, thanks. It was not meant to be a final version, as the commented deb-dependencies show. We're still trying to figure out which dependencies are necessary. Audio is working but video not. The screen remains black. Does it work for you?

The PKGBUILD is flawed in countless ways!

First, it doesn't source the deb file (wget? really??), it includes empty arrays etc. Here, I've cleaned it up for you.

Uhm... You've added pulseaudio as a dependency, but it requires alsa-utils OR pulseaudio. You should mention that in the PKGBUILD.
