@slav Make sure you have a recent build of python-pafy-git and run 'clearcache' in mpsyt.

I resolved issue adding in locale what I have customised in Plasma 5:

nano /etc/locale.gen

en_GB.UTF-8 UTF-8
en_GB ISO-8859-1
en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8
en_US ISO-8859-1
pl_PL.UTF-8 UTF-8
pl_PL ISO-8859-2

sudo locale-gen

Missing dep added to python-pafy-git.

ids1024 commented on 2015-09-14 01:55

@Thimoteus actually that should be added as a dependency of python-pafy-git. It is not a direct dependency of mps-youtube-git. Also youtube-dl should work, and there isn't really a need for youtube-dl-git.

Anyway, it is true that it should be added as a dependency of python-pafy-git.

Thimoteus commented on 2015-09-14 01:40

Didn't compile for me until I installed youtube-dl-git.

ids1024 commented on 2015-06-17 19:15

I already posted this on the aur3, but that must have been after comments were migrated, because it is not here.

The xclip optdepend should be replaced with python-pyperclip as of this commit:

Doesn't work with python-pafy, need python-pafy-git
