It seems the last packager has lost interest on this package, so I've taken maintainership of it now.

I've added new patches to get it building again in this repository. I've changed the sources to use new mirrors. And I've also tweaked a few things in the PKGBUILD, because some of the dependencies have become missing and/or unneeded.

The package is now building again. Though, if new issues arise, feel free to email me at the URL linked in the PKGBUILD. You can also flag this package instead, if you want, then explain in the comments what's wrong.

NOTE: This package uses GPG verification. So before you install, make sure to run:

$ gpg --recv-key 51E8B148A9999C34

To avoid build failures. See the Arch Wiki article on makepkg for more information.

@Danieldakataca This package uses GPG verification during build. Make sure to import the keys before running makepkg.

I've added a note in the pinned comment to this regard.

Gpg keys cannot be verified, so installation fails.

Thanks @ryshglene, works well for me.

I have his sources mirrored here: https://github.com/ryshglene/mplayer-vaapi/releases/tag/36265

Try editing the PKGBUILD to use the sources there instead, and see if it builds. I haven't it tested personally, but it should work without any problems (as its the same exact files).

Edit: It doesn't work without any problems.

In particular, I got errors while building stream/stream_smb.c because of some missing headers. And also with ffmpeg's libavcodec/libx264.c, because of API changes.

I've added patches to fix this, so anyone wanting to test can clone the repo at: https://gitlab.com/arvl/aurpkg-mplayer-vaapi

As of now, it works for me, at least.

Looks like the project has gone away - URL is not reachable and sources have disappeared (404)…

Building libavcodec/libilbc components fails against current version of the library, use --disable-libilbc if you don't need it.

I unflagged the package since I don't know of any updates to the patch. If someone wants to point me in some direction, let me know.

To successfully build mplayer-vaapi "ffmpeg-libvpxenc-remove-some-unused-ctrl-id-mappings.patch" needs to be added. See my comment of 2015-11-16 or that of vugri 2015-11-23 for the patch. Hope this helps.

This was flagged out of date, does anyone want to indicate where updated sources reside?
