Improving VLC 2.2.8 for Haiku

That looks great @3dEyes! Are there any remaining issues that may prevent Haiku support from being upstreamed in the meantime?

I wanted to ask you since ages: could you tell me, what that flame icon is in your deskbar? Also the icons above the deskcalc replicant?

Great work @3dEyes. Where can this be downloaded, perchance?

Thanks a lot @3dEyes ! Been waiting/hoping for a modern VLC on Haiku for a long time
Is this already available in haikuports or pkgman?

This. Is. Awesome. :grin:

Thanks for your great work !

Just a question: if I have understood well, the only VLC “function” that work under Haiku is the playing, right ? (no en/transcoding, etc)

If so, why don’t you evaluate to port&maintain MPV player instead (which is more minimal, in Haiku feel) ?

Yes for now.

I only do what I’m interested in at the moment. VLC is currently my interest. A hobby should be fun, not a duty.

Great job, works wonderfully!

Unfortunately, it is impossible to compile for 32-bit. The gcc compiler crashes when building.
Update: Fixed

Can I try it on 64bit Haiku?

Yes, it is already in the depot.

Great, thanks!

@3dEyes, seems it has been build for 32bit?
