This is a -git package, that means you have to update it!
Please do not flag it out of date because of the version number.
The version number will automatically increase to the version of the latest commit.

If you want to have the stable versions, please install the package obs-studio from [community].

@haddadmj, try reinstalling qt5-base.

pacman -Ql qt5-base
qt5-base /usr/lib/qt/plugins/platforms/
qt5-base /usr/lib/qt/plugins/platforms/
qt5-base /usr/lib/qt/plugins/platforms/
qt5-base /usr/lib/qt/plugins/platforms/
qt5-base /usr/lib/qt/plugins/platforms/
qt5-base /usr/lib/qt/plugins/platforms/
qt5-base /usr/lib/qt/plugins/platforms/ <-

This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "xcb".

Available platform plugins are: eglfs, kms, linuxfb, minimal, minimalegl, offscreen, xcb.

Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

well, pretty useless for me till it can actually see my 2 separate x screens, but it does compile and work otherwise

@Weegee, Actually, it makes sense to prefer system libraries over static ones. I'll update the package in a bit to add jansson and add a few optional dependencies that I noticed, too.

Thanks for reporting.

ledti commented on 2014-07-16 11:12

@Weegee, I'm not sure why that's happening. I don't have jansson installed and can compile just fine. I could be the odd one out, but there hasn't been anyone else who has reported this, so for now I'm not going to add jansson as a build dependency. That might be worth asking about upstream if you're sure you're using all the right packages.

If anyone else has same issue let me know and I'll add jansson as a build dependency.

Hey, I dropped the obs-git package as you've submitted your PKGBUILD earlier. However I get the following error when building obs-studio-git if I don't have jansson installed (i. e. OBS uses its own jansson version):

Yeh i forgot to remove the comment, but i fixed it by reinstalling FFMpeg

ledti commented on 2014-07-15 20:09

Are you using ffmpeg from the extra repository?

'pacman -Qs x265 && pacman -Qs ffmpeg'
