Woops, I thought I removed usr/ from the desktop patch but it looks like I forgot to commit and push it. Thanks for the report.

There are new pre-build qt5-*-595 packages available to download from To easy download all these files download i created a list to be used with wget: wget -i <>

# --- Download them all, install them with yay for example like: yay -U qt5-*.

# --- Then download this AUR package locally and cd to the directory: yay -G plex-media-player-git ; cd plex-media-player-git.

# --- There are some differences/errors to fix with the .desktop file, and make sure the build will use the correct QT Libraries. Download the following patch: wget -O qt595.patch <> Apply the patch git apply qt595.patch

# --- Now you should be able to use makepkg to build the git version with using the qt595 version.

Whelp, maybe I won't do that. The qt5-pmp-base package doesn't compile anymore out of the box.

Upstream is saying they won't be fixing this issue right now:

I'm going to switch this package over to using the qt5-pmp-* that provide QT 5.9.5.

I guess I forgot to restart the app when I updated it last week as video was working for me but now it's not. Work around is to downgrade QT whole we wait for upstream to fix it.

The patch has been fixed. Thanks for reporting that @iusearchbtw.

@iusearchbtw, interesting, it was working when I tested it. I'll do some more testing with it and push a fix in a few days (I'm traveling at the moment).

The latest update with the added patch is broken - I am getting

==> Starting prepare()... error: corrupt patch at line 15

which seems to be a problem with whitespace in the patchfile. Manually applying the changes does successfully compile the package.

This package has also stopped playing video since the last update to the qt5 packages, though it is unrelated.
