@joposter it didn't build because of missing setuptools, but now that they're added, the package is fine again :)

EDIT: if it is about the token thing ( then thats a youtube-dl bug. Use python2-youtube-dl-git for now.

@xiretza Hello Friend, may i inquire about what's broken with this package? It seems to work fine for me.

PS: yes, i added the python2-setuptools dependency

xiretza commented on 2019-06-02 18:15

This package is still broken, and still requires python2-setuptools to build, as I noted 3 months ago.

Requires python2-setuptools in makedepends:

no problem, i changed to upstream now. As the previous comments said, the problem was a missing package. Since that exists now i have added that as dependency. I hope this resolves your problem :)

@joposter thanks for the clarification! I pointed it out because tizonia depends on this package, but with the current version (0.3.x) it's not usable, if you mind you can take a look in this issue: where I discuss it further with tizonia maintainer.

What's bad about that youtube-dl dependency? Sorry, I'm kinda noob in this AUR world.

joposter commented on 2019-03-01 17:07

@eduruiz The reason for staying on 0.3.x releases was the added youtube-dl dependency. The release mentioned the branch 0.3.x would (for a while) contain all patches without the youtube-dl dependency (so i migrated to that branch).

I might patch this package to use the upstream url but i am certain it would change a bit

EDIT: and you're right, the upstream url 404's indeed. I will fix that ASAP

eduruiz commented on 2019-02-27 15:20

I think this package is out of date but I'm not really sure, the upstream URL is giving me a 404. I needed the 0.5.4 version of the package (for use with tizonia-all) which I could upgrade only using pip2, it's really outdated or I'm missing something?

makedepends=('git') - see

@FlorianJacob since it provides python2-pafy i don't think it should conflict it... i do not know if pacman autoconflicts the providing packages or thinks that it is a reinstall. either way, it conflicts python-pafy because it shares /usr/bin/ytdl with it.
