Oh I didn't see that you edited the message. I do have sdl and libdc1394, I'll add them in the list.

I have no problem building the package, maybe you have a bad version of autotools installed? I have the base-devel package that brings autoconf 2.69-4 and automake 1.15.1-1. Finished making: oacapture 1.4.0-1 (Sat 16 Jun 2018 20:27:28 CEST)

When installing with latest update (pacman -Syu) I get this error when running ./bootstrap:

autoreconf: running: /usr/bin/autoconf --force error: possibly undefined macro: AC_DEFINE
      If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
      See the Autoconf documentation. error: possibly undefined macro: AM_PATH_SDL
autoreconf: /usr/bin/autoconf failed with exit status: 1

EDIT: Turns out that an earlier warning indicated something with SDL, so I installed the package sdl pacman -S sdl, and this solved the problem. Also, to avoid Perl warnings I set: LANG=C;LC_CTYPE=C prior to executing ./bootstrap. I guess sdl should be added as a dependency?

EDIT2: In addition (while I'm at it), I had to also install pacman -S libdc1394 in order to do the make. And I manually executed the build commands used in the PKGBUILD with diff from github as indicated by cgarry on 2018-03-22.

The author of oacapture has generated a working PKGBUILD and diff file for the latest version (v1.4.0) of oacapture. These files can be found here:

Can this package be updated to use these files please?

The new version fails to compile its own ffmpeg apparently, this is becoming too complicated for the time I have to spend on it...

I have updated the package to 1.0.0, using the patch for qt5 given here:

vinvin commented on 2015-05-21 00:41

Updated to 0.5.0.
Note that oaCapture also supports Qt5, but in this package focuses on Qt4.

New version 0.3.0 released, package updated:

vinvin commented on 2015-01-10 01:20

Fixed. Should be fine now.

It actually fails to install on systems with ffmpeg already installed, because it embeds ffmpeg and installs it, with other dependencies. Sorry.
