Updated to 3.3.4.

The openjpeg dependency is now mentionned upstream, along with a patch I've included here too.

openjpg seems to be a dependency for building ffmpeg-nmal now.

Currently update fails again with message as described below:

ffmpeg-mmal: installing x265 (2.5-1) breaks dependency ''

A painful but working workaround is to uninstall ffmpeg-nmal by installing ffmpeg and then upgrading, and finally re-installing ffpmeg-nmal after cleaning the cache.

I've got this error during build:

ffmpeg-3.3.1.tar.xz ... Failed (unknown public key B4322F04D67658D8)
Error: One or More PGP signatures could not be verified!
Error: Makepkg was unable to build ffmpeg-mmal.

Does anyone else have this problem?

Thanks nini for reporting your problem, with a solution on top of it!

This is strange though. The x265 package does mention in its provides array, so this shouldn't make a difference.
Besides, this is what upstream does. I'll try to reproduce your bug, and if I manage to, you might have found a bug in the official PKGBUILD.

Upstream sources for reference:

I couldn't upgrade my system anymore because of issues with ffmpeg-mmal and x265, so I removed both and installed to the newest version of x265, which, when trying to install ffmpeg-mmal again, still resulted in the same error:

warning: cannot resolve "", a dependency of "ffmpeg-mmal"
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)

I have changed the PKGBUILD, so ffmpeg-mmal depends on x265, not – now it works. Not sure if that's a sustainable solution though.

Updated to 3.2.4.

@joao I double checked and built the package, and the signature checked. Please make sure your system certificates are up to date.

2 new errors:

==> Verifying source file signatures with gpg...
ffmpeg-3.2.2.tar.xz ... FAILED (error during signature verification)
==> ERROR: One or more PGP signatures could not be verified!

Tip for users:
to skip pgp checks (POTENTIALLY UNSAFE) pass --skippgpcheck to mkpkg.
if you use yaourt:

yaourt --m-arg "--skippgpcheck" mpv-rpi

will install mpv-rpi without checking validity of the downloaded files. at your own risk!

2nd Error: Build will fail unable to find pod2man

/bin/sh: pod2man: command not found
make: *** [doc/Makefile:119: doc/ffmpeg.1] Error 127
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

Tip for users:
Probably an issue with perl.
remedy by appending /usr/bin/core_perl (or location of perl binaries) to your PATH.
For example: export PATH="/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/bin/core_perl"

Updated, along with mpv-rpi. Thanks for reporting.

Haven't had time to test the build, but since I've just imported the modifications for the upstream package, it should be alright.
