Update to version 2.3.0 does not work for me, it needs requests>=2.26.0 but opensuse has only 2.25.1

Hmm, there was an entry in upstream changelog to this effect, but the commit message said "vendor: upgrade requests to >=2.26.0 <3" so I thought it did not apply here. Also, their build instructions haven't been updated to match this commit.

Anyway, that part is in, line 15, so feel free to "beat me to the punch" (if you don't want to, I will try this on Saturday). It should be possible to use 2.25.1 since that is the version they use for Windows builds.

I have the new version (3.0.3) built and working on Tumbleweed but it requires too many python dependencies not available on Leap 15.3. Are you still interested in a SR?

Simon Puchert's avatar

There isn't much we can do about this incompatibility (it's Python, after all), so I'd be fine with at least salvaging the situation for Tumbleweed users. Using Python stuff on Leap was always bound to run into some problems, see for example the somewhat recent (2022-01-11) LWN article.

"little bit out of date"...there is already 4.0.1

is it possible to have two splitted versions? (the old one for leap and newest for tumbleweed users)

Hey, could you please update it to the latest version there is 4.1.0 out now

Some quick suggestions after the recent package update:

  1. the rtmpdump dependency has been dropped in the 3.0.0 release
  2. the package meta/description is outdated, see

Should be addressed with the latest update. Thanks for the suggestions!

Got this working on Leap 15.3 by installing python39 and python39-devel.

Thanks for the explanation, it's really interesting, I need tools that will simplify video editing and manipulation with the video player. But I found all the tools that are already collected in one video editor click site great free video editor that will suit different needs

Streamlink 6.0 has been released since 20th July 2023. Is there any reason why this is still not updated? Is it to preserve compatibility with older distributions?
