@fthiery if you do not want to build qtwebkit you can install qtwebkit-bin from the AUR instead, as this provides qtwebkit

@zbraniecki, @greyltc yes I'm seeing the same problem. Unfortunately since Vidyo stopped supporting VidyoDesktop on Linux a long time ago, I doubt we will see any attempts to fix this problem. The current version (3.6.3_017) was released back in March 2016. Since it is closed source there is not much I can do except recommend one of three alternatives:
1. Downgrading the qt5 group to 5.9.1
2. Wine+VidyoDesktop windows version (http://information-technology.web.cern.ch/services/fe/downloads/Vidyo)
3. Use the Vidyo NEO WebRTC web client. Apparently Vidyo are planning to replace the native VidyoDesktop client with the NEO client in the future.

None of these are ideal, and I am looking into other possible fixes for this package and getting in contact with Vidyo to see if anything can be done.

Yep, this package is broken with a segfault error now. Maybe (probably?) due to a recent update of the qt5 group packages. The qt 5.9.1 --> 5.9.2 update is about the time when this breakage occurred for me.

For about a week now, I can't get vidyo to work. Getting crash with:

Is there any chance that this could work with kdewebkit ? It would make building qtwebkit unnecessary (thats a large piece of sw).

franaln commented on 2017-09-08 12:13

Thanks @seadanda! I think he added it a few weeks ago, so it should be working now.

seadanda commented on 2017-08-11 14:30

@franaln that is an issue with the qtwebkit-bin pkgbuild. It should contain "provides=('qtwebkit')" but doesn't. @grandchild already suggested this about a month ago but @mlex (the maintainer) doesn't seem to have added it. Try commenting on the qtwebkit-bin package page and see if @mlex responds. Failing that you could try emailing him using the email address in the pkgbuild.

franaln commented on 2017-08-10 14:22

I have qtwebkit-bin installed instead of qtwebkit. It is possible to make this PKGBUILD works with any of the two packages? I modified the PKGBUILD by hand but maybe there is a better way to do it. Thanks!

Fixed. The upstream download URLs have changed.

I have adopted this packet to pick up where @troyengel left off.
