Some dependencies are not satisfied with a package with the same name, but with a "provides" from a package with a different name.

is satisfied with

The dependency "lib32-libx264" is linked to a search in the official repository:
where it is not found (since there is no such package in the official repository).

For official packages we link all packages where a dependency is provided:
libx264.so=144-64 (libx264, libx264-10bit)

I would like if we do that on AUR 4, too.
Otherwise there is no connection (in neither direction) between lib32-ffmpeg and lib32-libx264-stable-git.
This task depends upon
