You can edit build files and type nodejs-lts-fermium instead nodejs-lts-dubnium in PKGBUIL

Strongly recommend that users of this package seek other options. Upstream has significant issues that are not being addressed and likely won't be. Current AUR maintainer has also not been very responsive to very valid questions regarding these issues.

Why does this package rely on the builtin installation of a json config file instead of letting pacman take care of that? And where is that file even going? looking at the scary many vulns open in its dependencies, that might not be the biggest problem even…

@rodrigo21 that's not usual of any AUR package I use. I, like many people, rely on AUR helper, for even easier installation and upgrades, I tend to simply uninstall stuff if it doesn't conform to simple updates like the rest of the packages.

@pepper_chico Try building in a clean chroot: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/DeveloperWiki:Building_in_a_clean_chroot

This is requiring nodejs-lts-dubnium for make, but nodejs-lts-dubnium conflicts with nodejs that's already installed and which I can't replace.

Do not know when this will solved but I have a kind of hackish workaround.

At first, you need to install "vdhcoapp-bin" from AUR with yaourt or yay. It currently is flagged out-of-date now, I know that.

Now you need to download the "deb" package. The latest url is here: https://github.com/mi-g/vdhcoapp/releases/download/v1.3.0/net.downloadhelper.coapp-1.3.0-1_amd64.deb

You need to extract the content of deb file. It is a simple archive, so you need to open it with an archive program, like Ark.

Extract "data.tar.gz" (or a similar name to that). Extract it as well.

Then go to directory "opt" and you will have "net.(blablabla)" directory.

You need to copy this directory and paste it under "/opt".

Then you can check out from your browser, go to VideoDownloadHelper settings. You will see a section saying the version of your companion app, which is 1.3.0 right now.
