The patch I linked to is supposed to be the adjusted version you're talking about; it fixes the double free issue and should work on newer and older versions of ffmpeg. AFAIK it hasn't been merged because they want more testing and because they want to discourage building against system ffmpeg.

The patch was reverted upstream because it broke other distros with older FFmpegs. If someone can adjust the patch to play nicely with both current versions and older ones, I'd guess it would be accepted fairly easily.

In the meantime, I'll update the PKGBUILD to patch for latest FFmpeg, sometime in the next couple days probably.

@qmega
I was told that the patch would break other functions, so it was recommended to me to just use the bundled version.

@qmega
Applying the patch is being told to break other functions at least that was told me in #stepmania-dev. For stable use I'd just suggest do edit the PKGBUILD.

For the bundled version to work after installing, you have to do:

cp -t "$pkgdir/opt/$_shortname" -d --parents bundle/ffmpeg/*/*.so{,.*}

in package().

Alternatively, https://github.com/lthls/stepmania/commit/8afe1cf17c5d58182f010f540c49a2648f5c2f57.patch fixes the system ffmpeg build.

To get movie playback working, you need to use the bundled FFMpeg version

at the line
./configure --with-jack --with-system-ffmpeg

"--with-system-ffmpeg" needs to be removed, else it will crash.

Thanks - I added the .desktop and icons to the PKGBUILD. I don't have a lot of faith in make install with /opt just yet, but maybe someday we'll get FHS-compliant StepMania. :)

[Other changes: updated dependencies]

The upstream project is now at http://code.google.com/p/stepmania/. At some point we should probably ask aur-general for a rename.

The PKGBUILD I've been using is here: http://pastie.org/8311514. Feel free to adapt as needed.

Configure and make should work well. Now that users can place files in ~/.stepmania-5.0, there's no need to use the setgid hack or create extra empty directories. Also, there was a JACK driver added, but you can decide whether you want to include that as a dependency or not.
