Build is failing for me due to missing breakpad:

CMake Deprecation Warning at CMakeLists.txt:42 (cmake_policy):
  The OLD behavior for policy CMP0026 will be removed from a future version
  of CMake.

  The cmake-policies(7) manual explains that the OLD behaviors of all
  policies are deprecated and that a policy should be set to OLD only under
  specific short-term circumstances.  Projects should be ported to the NEW
  behavior and not rely on setting a policy to OLD.

Thank you @anatolik! I removed the symlink I created and rebuilt plex-media-player which fixed the issue for me.

anatolik commented on 2020-07-17 15:37

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libcec.so.6 /usr/lib/libcec.so.5

Please don't mess with the symlinks. Please rebuild plex-media-player package itself.

dmp1ce commented on 2020-07-17 14:30

I also am getting the error plexmediaplayer: error while loading shared libraries: libcec.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

sudo pacman -S libcec did NOT work for me.

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libcec.so.6 /usr/lib/libcec.so.5 did work.

boennhoff commented on 2020-07-17 13:29

I had the same problem @Scarecr0w, seems like the ABI of libcec changed. Most straightforward way to fix this is reinstalling this package!

BIllzargo commented on 2020-07-17 04:51

@Scarecr0w a quick fix: sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libcec.so.6 /usr/lib/libcec.so.5

Scarecr0w commented on 2020-07-17 00:28

Hi, I'm getting this error when launching plexmediaplayer through terminal.

plexmediaplayer: error while loading shared libraries: libcec.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

It also threw similar error for libcec but fixed it using sudo pacman -S libcec.

Is there a quick fix around this problem?

redairforce commented on 2020-06-22 01:50

Can you please change PKGBUILD to include arch=('i686' 'x86_64' 'armv7h' 'aarch64') This installs fine on my Pi4 once I edit the PKGBUILD and install manually. If you throw in the aarch64 line, I can use it from AUR directly and maintain update.

Having issues with 1080p h265/HEVC files stuttering significantly in PMP but playing smoothly when opened directly with MPV.
