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free to report issues regarding the packaging here: be aware that sometimes the package will fail to build because of outdated upstream and updated dependency, which will require me some time to test and solve the problem; I do also have life stuff, packaging is a free-time activity.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

The package uses the sources available at:

https://github.com/popcorn-official/popcorn-desktop

I am aware of the different clones and branches; I do still believe that this code is acceptable (not affected itself from malware).

As the nw.js toolchain provided by the PopcornTime team can not be proven as non-malware easily, this package uses the official nw.js toolchain provided here:

https://dl.nwjs.io/

and uses for additional codecs the prebuilt FFmpeg library provided here:

https://github.com/iteufel/nwjs-ffmpeg-prebuilt/

In addition, the PKGBUILD won't point to the 0.3.10 Git reference but will also include important commits, for e.g. security reasons or providers changes.

@ItachiSan I can confirm that I am having the same error. I installed this package a couple of hours ago after removing the orphaned popcorntime-bin package.

A video file was not played because of codec errors and had to watch it in vlc, which aslo had codec issues with that file.

Never faced such issues with the previous package

@kronikpillow I will try to rebuild the package tonight; if I find the issue playing a few movies, I will investigate further, but if I don't encounter the problem it might be that film which has a weird codec.

Additionally, not all the ffmpeg-available codecs are available but a few more than the usual ones, which are the most mainstream ones. Check: https://github.com/iteufel/nwjs-ffmpeg-prebuilt/ to see which ones are.

hm.... movies/series aren't displaying video, only audio when running butter, when streaming trough VLC it works just fine, so ... what codec could i be missing?

@vagelis not sure why that happens, I actually never had a tray icon; maybe you can report an issue upstream?

Hi ItachiSan, thanx for the latest commit. I've noticed tough when popcorntime is minimized to systray it duplicates the icon, instead of removing it when restoring. Maybe something to do with latest gnome-shell update? There were some issues all around cause of this.

Thanx again.

Same thing as krosen's. Favorites just vanished. Recompiled from scratch. Favorites now on tab and not "heart" icon.

ItachiSan commented on 2019-01-20 20:44

@krosen I actually do have it, so I can't replicate the issue...

0.3.10-14 "Favorites" category disappeared after updating from 0.3.10-12.
