@bartus

For what is git needed here?

bartus commented on 2018-07-24 10:52

@grufo, you are missing git in makedepends

Hi @grufo,
the new official domain for this project is popcorn-time.is

Hi everyone!

In case you are seeing this message on Popcorn Time Ce: «The video could not be loaded, either because the server or network failed or because the format is not supported»… It seems to be a common problem related to the new version of libffmpegsumo.so, which is likely that will be solved soon – see: https://github.com/PopcornTimeCommunity/desktop/issues/13

SOLUTIONS:

1. Use VLC for playing the videos from Popcorn Time CE
2. Or follow the discussion on GitHub linked above

@jevv

Thank you. I switched from binaries to source. Could you please have a look at the PKGBUILD and make a check?

je-vv commented on 2016-04-09 06:52

This package name doesn't give a clue that it's installing the binary release (*-bin). I'm used to see a package name like this one for a package that builds the tarball release, which is available on the same github releases page.

That said, the conflict I asked about is not necessary. My mistake. The other package I mentioned renames things so there's no conflict.

BTW, this one is *.ag, while the other one is *.ch. I didn't know the community was split... That's part of why there's no conflict...

Could popcorntime-ce-git be included as a conflict (it was removed, but dor those using it, it would be easier to transition).

Also, if changing the name to *-bin, could the non *-bin be added as a conflict as well?

je-vv commented on 2016-04-08 22:47

Can the package be renamed as popcorntime-ce-bin?

I see the github repo offers the sources for the current release:

https://github.com/PopcornTimeCommunity/desktop/archive/v0.4.0-2.tar.gz

And there are instructions to build it:

npm install
gulp build

So popcorntime-ce should refer to the released build, and not the released binary.

You have to do your own research and choose for yourself. One difference is that popcorntime.ag is running a smear capaign against popcorntime.sh which they are spamming everywhere. ;)
