You are free to report issues regarding the packaging here: be aware that sometimes the package will fail to build because of outdated upstream and updated dependency, which will require me some time to test and solve the problem; I do also have life stuff, packaging is a free-time activity.

Info regarding the package
  1. The package uses the sources available at: I am aware of the different clones and branches; I do still believe that this code is acceptable (not affected itself from malware).

  2. This package uses a custom NW.js build provided from the PopcornTime team; essentially, a custom compiled browser. While this won't affect you as it should be used only within the app, you are here informed that I have no power over this component.

  3. The above point stands as the official NW.js Chromium source lacks multiple modern codecs, such as AC3 and HEVC (H.265).

  4. Earlier this package used the official nw.js toolchain provided available at and the prebuilt FFmpeg library with additional codecs available at . This was because the nw.js toolchain provided by the PopcornTime team can not be proven as non-malware easily. However, due to point 3, this approach was reverted. You are free to use an older PKGBUILD with the appropriate variable updates to re-enable this, however you will miss support for recent codecs.

  5. In addition, the PKGBUILD won't point to the Git release reference but will also include important commits, for e.g. security reasons or providers changes.

Same as @andrej84. line 79: 9482 Do you need any log from to help?

andrej84 commented on 2017-09-29 17:11

Getting a segmentation fault as well here

@jacobtey: also the source supported here is a legit source.
All the sources are available on Github and the project is well-known by the community.
Another post like this and I will consider it spam.

Other domains as .sh or .ch are fake, it may steal your information or give you virus.

There are many versions out there and not all of them has your best interest in mind. Here is a diagram that has been circulating on Reddit and attempts to put the current mess into an easy to understand format. It might help you navigate in the PT jungle out there.

Pacaur could not install it. But Yaourt could! haha

I got the same issue as tazam:

Create release folder in /tmp/yaourt-tmp-denis/aur-popcorntime/src/popcorn-desktop_0.3.10/build/Popcorn-Time/linux64
/tmp/yaourt-tmp-denis/aur-popcorntime/./PKGBUILD: línea 79: 21423 Violación de segmento (`core' generado) gulp build
==> ERROR: Se produjo un fallo en build().
==> ERROR: Makepkg no ha podido compilar popcorntime.

Does somebody fix it?

@Plexcon not really sure why you dump the build log.
I do packaging, so I am not changing stuff in the code if not needed to make it work.
If you've problems with the old dependencies, you can report it upstream.
