AUR vs Snap

Building from Aur or installing from snap? most secure option to not break system??
for example, i need Acestreamp layer, for web streaming…building is take it a while. Downloading from arch linux site . need more dependecies, like acestream-data or acestream-engine. searching with yay, acestream doesnt exist.

hello ,this is the software you are looking for: acestream-player

yes.

aur is fine when the maintainer keeps it up to date, https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/acestream-player

ok :ok_hand: but why pamac need 2 h for qt4 and qtwebkit and snap just 5 minutes??

the first compiles them, second no = it could be the chef’s surprise if the person who made the snap is not serious

so no trust in snaps…? thx for answer

Qt4 is also decapriatee and building from scratch to a little longer and base get renewed you have to recompile again with ccache makes a bit faster , snap got also all depencys in. The package and itrun different its possible that also uses bit more ram cause of that then normal

so , qt is depreciate , snap isnt safe and AUR isnt supported by arch linux… :grin: best choice to install acestream -player them? i try to stay far from snap, but compile more 4 hours just for a video player?? and try to keep AUR “closed” in pamac , but havent choices :grin: :thinking:

Or. Find something qt5 ?

something like? any alternative to acestream???

i didnt see any qt4 mmmm

you can also use mpv-acestream bnut you will get only the acestream-engine i guess or the launcher

Yes, ended with canceled after 6 hours of compiling, and installing from snap. Yes, I choose gstreamer, not Vlc qt, when installed, and now I have mov acestream player with acestream engine. 1 snap app can’t break the system :thinking:… thx all for answering.
