I'm using mesa-vdpau together with xf86-video-ati on a Radeon HD 5xxx.

I had to enable DRI3 and Glamor rendering to make OpenPHT usable at all. Before that, with EXA, I had extreme rendering issues and it would crash my X session.

After that I still had to deal with slowdowns, both in the menu as well as in videos. It was not usable.
I fixed that by installing libva-vdpau-driver. Now it's usable. It's still far from perfect though.

The latest commit from OpenPHT builds correctly without downgrading any package.
You only need the OpenPHT-ffmpeg package.

Only thing it stopped on is in the install in fakeroot environment,

-- Set runtime path of "/home/norman/openpht/pkg/openpht/usr/lib/openpht/plexhometheater" to ""
mv: cannot stat '/home/norman/openpht/pkg/openpht/usr/bin/system': No such file or directory
mv: cannot stat '/home/norman/openpht/pkg/openpht/usr/bin/xbmc-xrandr': No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

Must be a configuration thing somewhere?
btw this it the pkgbuild when using git, so openpht-git (

It should work if you just recompile OpenPHT :)

I'm no expert, but basically glew provides a shared object file that OpenPHT links to at compile time and loads dynamically at runtime. If you recompile OpenPHT it should update the linkage to the new version of libGLEW and then it should load it at runtime just fine.

OpenPHT doesn't works with the new glew package, you need to downgrade to the 1.13.0-1.

gcc 5.3 was also needed in my case

In the latest commit, they fixed the dependency on the the older GCC.

Maybe we should also have a OpenPHT-git version, so you can always upgrade to the latest and greatest without needing the official release. (Like Couchpotato-git)

md2prof: I got the change for the desktop file merged into upstream via a pull request. Keep an eye out for that in the next release to avoid having to provide your own desktop file :)

btw, looks like they renamed both their desktop file and launch script to openpht.desktop and respectively.

Added shairplay as a make depends and opt depends.

ccl2of4 commented on 2016-07-04 18:30

Just tried rebuilding the package -- got a message about needing to have libshairplay installed. Ran `pacman -S shairplay` to grab the dependency and the build succeeded.

Maybe add it to the dependencies? I think it would just be a make depend... Not 100% sure though, haven't maintained a package myself before.

Added rtmpdump to depends. Thanks carbncl.
