The description for the optional dependency phantomjs should be adjusted to say something along the lines of "additional dependency for few extractors". Openload itself no longer exists (merely the extractor), but at least another extractor in youtube-dl uses it.

@gesh No idea what I was thinking four years ago, it's changed now thank you.

Don't know if this is a typo in the PKGBUILD, but please version by git describe --long | sed 's/\([^-]*-g\)/r\1/;s/-/./g' like other git packages (note g is in the capture group, no use of printf). It's annoying to parse the pkgver to see what's changed otherwise.

@diastro the repo is back change the source git url to this git+ I did it manually on my local but wanted to comment about it.

@Everyone else

until disatro changes that change the source part of the PKGBUILD file to that and run `makepkg -si within the directory.

@katt Hah it happens. I saw they made another release on the temporary repo on the 12th so swapped after that when I had time. I guess I'll swap back tonight

If you want the tarball use youtube-dl. I will check that gitlab though

JonasCz commented on 2020-11-01 16:57

The download links on currently redirect to (for example "youtube-dl.exe" goes to - "copy download link" once the download starts in your browser to check.

So that repo may be at least somewhat official.

Maybe the PKGBUILD could be modified to pull down the tarball linked from instead of getting it from a repo.. ?
