@Nothing4You it seems to require ffmpeg-mpv and doesn't build now. It is better to wait for a week or two until wm4 manages to merge this in upstream.

Shouldn't this be building against ffmpeg-full-git 3.5.r88431.gd0920da029-1 now?
Or does it actually still require ffmpeg-mpv-git?

I'm getting the following error:
Checking for Libav/FFmpeg library versions : no ('libavutil >= 56.0.100 libavcodec >= 58.2.100 libavformat >= 58.0.102 libswscale >= 5.0.101 libavfilter >= 7.0.101 libswresample >= 3.0.100' not found)
Unable to find development files for some of the required FFmpeg/Libav libraries. You need git master. For FFmpeg, the mpv fork, that might contain additional fixes and features is required. It is available on Aborting.

Note: mpv now requires ffmpeg git.[1] I'm still patching to allow upstream ffmpeg for now, but I'm not going to maintain backwards compatibility for ffmpeg release by myself. This package may start depending on ffmpeg-git, but I'm not doing that yet because that would exclude ffmpeg-mpv-git at the moment.

It's entirely possible this churn will continue for a bit. Users with limited free time who don't have any problems with their current mpv might want to hold off on upgrading for the time being.

Thanks for the heads up.

I'm hoping this will blow over too, and don't want to make an intrusive change that might just be reverted next week. For now I'm reverting the commit that rejects upstream ffmpeg and applying the patch from #5033 - it's by the same guy who made the breaking change in ffmpeg so I'd sure hope it fixes the issue, and appears to work with the stable ffmpeg in Arch's repos as well.

I don't want to carry patches against upstream long-term, but for the time being either ffmpeg or mpv needs to be patched (unless we bundle ffmpeg here). Patching here seems like it will be the least trouble for most users for now. I'll reevaluate this decision after seeing what happens the next week or so.

The only change mpv's ffmpeg fork currently contains from upstream ffmpeg git is a revert of the commit which broke mpv. Depending on a ffmpeg-mpv-git package doesn't seem like the best move.

ffmpeg appears to be working on fixing this unintended breakage upstream and I'd suggest waiting for that to land. Until then, users have a couple choices:

1) Build ffmpeg-git without the commit which caused the breakage[1]
2) Use ffmpeg 3.4 (#branch=release/3.4)
3) Build mpv with the patch that fixes(?) the issue[2]

Note that the above still requires the workaround dbermond posted.

This is likely just another knee-jerk reaction by mpv's developer and will hopefully be peacefully resolved soon.

mpv has removed official support for upstream ffmpeg and will fail to build with it. Now mpv requires the git master branch of its own modified version of ffmpeg, called ffmpeg-mpv.

For details, see:

For a possible solution until there is no Arch official repository workaround, see:

Another possibility is to depend directly on ffmpeg-mpv-git, but this would restrict users to a single ffmpeg aur variant.

Right, ffmpeg-git uses libmysofa instead of netcdf, as will future ffmpeg releases, presumably.

laichiaheng commented on 2017-08-01 15:58

I've found another package in AUR, it is mpv-build-git which is built with ffmpeg-git, and it seems like there is no need to install the netcdf.

qmega commented on 2017-07-31 23:56

It's ffmpeg that needs to be built with libmysofa, not mpv. It looks like ffmpeg-full-git is the only AUR package that currently includes it by default. It's not yet in any ffmpeg release, so if you're using a release version you'd need netcdf instead (that was recently removed from the official repo package).

laichiaheng commented on 2017-07-31 08:30

Will it be built with libmysofa to enable the sofalizer?
