If someone needs any of these packages pre-built, chaotic-aur builds them hourly...

@tornado99

It wants to install pipewire or pipewire-git first,

I don't think it requires pipewire to build. Maybe you can try building it with makepkg -rs.

Ex.

$ git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/pipewire-common-git.git
$ cd pipewire-common-git && makepkg -rs

and then complains there is a conflict with pipewire when installing itself.

Of course it conflict with pipewire, the package is meant to replace other pipewire builds.

@FabioLolix This one has gstreamer support (provides gst-plugin-pipewire) and hsphfpd support enabled.

(All below is edit message for anyone who interests.)

Be aware that https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/gst-plugin-pipewire-git/ depend by pipewire-git is not part of pipewire-git package base.

Many people request[1-2] the maintainer(https://aur.archlinux.org/account/sl1pkn07) of pipewire-git to enable gstreamer support but seems he refuse to do that. Despite gstreamer support is enabled by default in upstream (also in Arch repo) and gstreamer plugin is a dynamic loadable library which is capable to be split into separate package.

And some request to orphan or delete pipewire-git but all has been rejected by TU[3].

There was a VCS package solved gstreamer problem named pipewire-nightly, but a TU decides to delete it for the reason that the suffix "-nightly" in package name imply that it has to be a snapshot package[4].

Those are reasons why I create this package base.
