Description

The Arch Community Repo contains the packages handbrake & handbrake-cli. It would be very awesome if it was available in Parabola.

History

Updated by fauno over 7 years ago

Last time I tried to build it without faac I discovered two things:

  • The developer(s) weren't very welcoming to the libre faac alternative (see their bug tracker, this may have changed)
  • Handbrake doesn't have dependencies because the build system downloads the needed libraries and builds them in place.

I just decided it wasn't worth it at the moment :P

My understanding is that they dropped FAAC a while ago, based on https://trac.handbrake.fr/ticket/127

Since the dependencies are already available in Parabola, I submitted this. :)

I am seeing, and it doesn't use a faac dependence, in arch packages' website doesn't appear.

I believe you encountered "The huge blocker here is that FF-AAC is currently an unusable piece of garbage." At first, this seems like not being welcoming. However, the developer who wrote that got involved in FF-AAC, and became the driving force behind FF-AAC development!

  • Handbrake doesn't have dependencies because the build system downloads the needed libraries and builds them in place.

I've got a work-around for this. It patches some of the dependencies, so a couple of them I had to keep building them in place; in those cases, I have a work-around to put them in source=(), so they are downloaded ahead of time.

I just decided it wasn't worth it at the moment :P

User 'coffeeking', who is blind, reports that handbrake is the only one really usable by him.

Anyway, I've been trying to liberate handbrake 0.9.9. The transition to FF-AAC is complete in SVN, so now I'm waiting for the code to check out. I'm unsure whether I will package handbrake-svn, or backport the FAAC/FF-AAC stuff.
