It applies to regular Arch, too.

I got an error after launching vlc:

qrc:/qml/MainInterface.qml:42:9: Type Player.Player unavailable
qrc:/player/Player.qml:21:1: module "QtGraphicalEffects" is not installed

It launched cvlc as a fallback. To fix this, I needed to install qt5-graphicaleffects. I'm on Manjaro though, maybe this does not apply to Arch.

The new UI looks nice (using dark Breeze theme right now). However, it still seems to be WIP, too. I also already had one crash. This seems to be the first time where one might better wait until the next release rather than using the latest nightly versions (which were previously surprisingly stable).

I personally liked the simplicity of the old playlist and can't find the media library which I often use any more at all. Let's see what they turn the GUI into in the end but too me it doesn't look that promising. I recently discovered QMPlay2 and I can recommend it to anybody who liked how the old playlist and media library worked because in QMPlay2 it is pretty similar. QMPlay2 relies fully on ffmpeg's libraries and uses Qt 5 Widgets.

I should disable skins2 because there was a big rewrite of the gui/playlist with qt quickcontrols instead of simple qt stuff like it was before.

It seems that gcrpyt is needed for some features beyond "Update Check" now seemingly, but it's more about "your choice" then simply yes, or no.

I disabled it simply in accordance with the regular VLC package. It appears they disabled it because it was only required for the update check:,

If that's not true for the nightly version anymore we can of course enable it.

I wonder, what is wrong with "libgcrypt" and why it's disabled in the first place

SolarAquarion commented on 2019-05-12 03:28

There may be a dependency on libgcrypt in vlc nightly

SolarAquarion commented on 2019-05-12 03:19

to be fair i'm also getting that build and reported it here

Build fails for both this and vlc-git with an un-searchable (no results from duckduckgo, google recaptchas forever and ergo out of the question) errror:

"error: ‘gcry_cipher_hd_t’ was not declared in this scope"
