Thanks disastro, indeed it works again with python-setuptools 1:47.3.0-1, as mentioned in that issue.

Hey buzo! will wait for what happens there before doing anything. Downgrading python-setuptools works on a brief test.

Does not work after building and installing the current version:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/youtube-dl", line 9, in <module>
    for entry_point in distribution('youtube-dl==2020.6.6').entry_points:

    return Distribution.from_name(distribution_name)

    raise PackageNotFoundError(name)

As noted previously rg3 redirected correctly to this date, but I updated the URLs now.

The date on the pkgver is the last tag available in git, usually a release they made if I'm not mistaken since they just use dates as version numbers.

Please update the upstream and download URL, it is (not rg3).

Also, the latest commit is from April 11th, but this package builds version 2020.03.24.r16.00eb865b3-1. What is wrong there?

The github URL has been changed to The old url redirects, but you may want to update the package.

@pbnoxious Hi, it seems you are mistaken :) -git packages build the latest version and update when the PKGBUILD needs changing. As far as I can tell the package builds and works just fine currently.

Hi, if I am not mistaken this needs to be updated. Youtube doesn't work for me with this version anymore and there is a newer version (via the -U switch) available that works fine.

I've deleted a spam comment from @shiskey.

Don't do that again or your account will be suspended.

Add phantomjs-bin as optional dependency. It's needed for openload
