Hey frukt sorry for taking so long to reply... I agree with the changes you want to make but I don't use this package anymore so I'm going to disown it. Feel free to adopt it if you can/want.

It seems like a bunch of the declared dependencies are at most optional. The mkchromecast package [1] has a much slimmer dependencies list and could be used as a template. In particular, python-pyqt5 seems wildly excessive (pulling in QT5 for a CLI app?), and I removed a few others before building, like gi.

That said, thanks for maintaining the package!

@applebloom Thanks, should be fixed now.

There's an issue that I can't update python2-mutagen because of this package. I think this is because the latest python2-mutagen doesn't provide mutagen dependency this package requires. I'm not sure how to resolve this.

Thanks @chappjc, updated.

The "devel" branch seems to be removed. Probably build from master now.

@nate Thanks, I repackaged it according to the new upstream changes. Please try it and tell me if it works.

The PKGBUILD is no longer working. The error message is

==> Entering fakeroot environment...

==> Starting package()...

install: cannot stat '': No such file or directory

==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

As of commit 3473a77eea7 in the devel branch, the file was moved to bin/mkchromecast.

Please add mkchromecast to conflicts() and provides().
