Hi @bunnybooboo, VidyoDesktop broke with an update to qt a few months ago. Unfortunately Vidyo stopped supporting Vidyo Desktop on Linux a long time ago and so I doubt we will see any attempts to fix this problem. The current version (3.6.3_017) was released back in March 2016. Since it is closed source the only way that we have found to run it succesfully is by using a systemtray application.

If you run trayer (which is installed as a dependency) before running Vidyo Desktop, Vidyo works without any issues. This is unfortunate but it is an upstream issue.

I have qtwebkit-bin installed instead of qtwebkit. It is possible to make this PKGBUILD works with any of the two packages? I modified the PKGBUILD by hand but maybe there is a better way to do it. Thanks!

Fixed. The upstream download URLs have changed.

I have adopted this packet to pick up where @troyengel left off.

I found out the web client. If I use the application again, I'll try @trashstar advice.

I have disowned (orphaned) this package for someone else to pick up; my company has migrated off the Vidyo platform.

@cemsbr I'm running Xmonad as well but the real culprit seems to be the missing PulseAudio. Try "export VIDYO_AUDIO_FRAMEWORK=ALSA" - this worked for me.

I see nothing in xmonad, but it keeps running in foreground. The output is:

$ VidyoDesktop

I worked through email with the Vidyo team to resolve the problem, they have a new URL - I am working on the PKGBUILD now, the existing hashes check out so no new upstream package. The Vidyo team was very responsive to the problem, I did not have to use my company email/account - handled it all as a generic internet guy.

@truber - this new URL has the same version as what used to exist, that new version you managed to grab I think was some sort of beta they didn't expect to get found. I recommend you downgrade back to this older version -- I'm going to bump the release to -2 so everyone gets the new PKGBUILD file.

@truber - what DE are you using? I work at a company with a ton of different types people use, it *seems* to work most reliably on GNOME, MATE and XFCE - but things like i3 and others have problems. (it's really all over the map, honestly - roll the dice. Not using PulseAudio causes a lot of problems)

I see the SSL cert is still broken, so our package won't build cleanly when I try later -- is anyone aware of the same download in another location on their site that doesn't have the SSL cert mismatch?
