But I found a hack here (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=701083#c7) which makes vidyo believes is running under ubuntu. That actually works. It s just the package in that hack is an old version of Vidyo.

first, you ask this pquestion on the wrong list. This list is about developement of the AUR itself. aur-general would be the right list.
Second, you can leave a comment in the AUR comments. You posted the link already
Third, you can write a mail to the maintainer. Click on the maintainer's name on the AUR side of the package. If you do not hear from the maintainer between fourtenn days, write a mail to aur-general and ask for orphaning the package for taking it over.
Thanks for you willing to contribute.
Best Regards Stefan.
