I like that you now use the official SHA-512 checksum for the download, but could you also use checksums for the two other files? This way it is detected, if they are currupted during transit or other problems.

To generate/update them you can e.g. use updpkgsums from the pacman-contrib package.

I don't know where you found md5sums, but would you please add official sha512sums from download page? E.g.

Thanks & kind regards.. tinxy

According to the MediathekView developers, the tarball on their website includes a bugfix that will be included soon in the next release. So, yes, the change is intended.

Edit(s): fixed typos.

Just stumbled about the problem with the check-sum today.

Did wget 'MediathekView-13.1.2.tar.gz' and ms5sum'ed it. Got 'ed51ec960fed3b3e6a90e1816317a9a4'.

Entered it in the PKGBUILD, et voila, installed.

[Edit:] Just saw you mean the difference between github and download url. But still, it installed. Will try out this evening.

[Edit:] Works for me so far.

The upstream tarball from has been changed today and so the md5 checksum in this PKGBUILD does not match anymore. It is now ed51ec960fed3b3e6a90e1816317a9a4

However, the tarball on their Github Page (which can be found here: hasn't been changed since the release of 13.1.2 and thus its md5 checksum still is 7ff4e235b41faf12c00e9c8d11bda2be

As of now, I'm unsure, if this difference in the tarballs is intentional.

According to your last update timestamp you've already tried to fix this. Well, it isn't fixed.
