For all people flagging the package out of date: This is a -git package that pulls down the latest sources from the git repository, so unless the build process is broken, don't flag this package out of date! Just rebuild it.

Looks like ffmpeg 4.1 support has been added:

I can not update my system anymore due to this package: :: installing x264 (2:157.r72db4377-1) breaks dependency '' required by ffmpeg4.0

Any idea?

Phlogiston commented on 2019-03-25 20:25

@Eisfunke: Thanks for the hint. @z3ntu: This package should then depend on ffmpeg4.0. Please change in PKGBUILD.

Considering the Jellyfin project has now published Jellyfin-ffmpeg, found here,

I'm not sure how portable it is to the AUR, but it might be worth keeping an eye on it. I'd be ideal to avoid pairing the user with an out of date FFMPEG package system wide. Perhaps it'd be worth making that a hard requirement for this package, once properly ported.

Note to those who choose jellyfin-git over jellyfin:

You will have to DL 1.3GB git history because makepkg as it is in the distro will not allow you to pass options for shallow clones.

@bobberb: There is a stable package already, see

z3ntu commented on 2019-01-23 16:11

@bobberb: I disagree because the master branch seems pretty stale until the next release drops, at which point the dev branch is merged onto master - and the main development happens on dev and -git packages are supposed to provide the bleeding edge EDIT: I just got word, that dev will become the master branch soon, so this discussion will be pointless ;)

@bobberb: I just rebuilt the package locally and it still builds fine... What's the problem?

Jellyfin doesn't support ffmpeg 4.1, which is the version currently in the arch repos. E.g. seeking in streams doesn't work with it:

Use the ffmpeg4.0 AUR package I created if you encounter problems, everything should work fine with that version.
