  1. Hello and nice job on creating the build.
    However, is it possible to host this package somewhere you don't need to wait almost two hours to download it? :)

    Thanks

    1. Hello,
      Un-RAR the folder,
      Copy it to your raspberry,
      Execute the vlc executable form the folder.

    2. Hi you meant by executable file, the file at ~/vlc/vlc ?
      I tried that in Raspbian filebrowser and it just ask me to choose application which should be used to open this file.

    I'm stuck, what specifically should one install in raspbian to get the VLC gui to start?.

  4. Hi Helder,

    I can offer to host this binary on my server if you like? It has unlimited bandwidth.

    Thanks.

  5. This is Great news, thank you for this.
    I’m not using Raspberry Pi with VLC to watch movies, but to transcode them. Will this HW Accelerated version of VLC here be used to transcode mpeg2 .ts stream into H264 & mp3 .ts stream like

    “vlc -I dummy http://ip:8001/channelREF --sout "#transcode{vcodec=h264,vb=256,fps=25,width=320,height=0,venc=x264{{profile=baseline,level=1}},acodec=mp3,ab=64,channels=1,samplerate=48000}:http{dst=:8081/video.ts}"


    The videosource will be Enigma2 based set-top-box (VU+) .
    Will Mpeg2 decoder license be used with VLC?

    1. Hi, I have never used it to transcode so can't give you a valid answer.
      You might want to try out and share your result with us?
      Sorry for the delayed answer

    1. Yes it's the complete compilation folder.
      You can make install on it after installing all necessary libraries.
      Sorry for the delayed answer

  11. Hi. I tested compiled version of vlc and it worked fine on my raspberry pi.
    However, I can't get it to work using libvlc (with VLCJ java library). It gives me following: main libvlc error: No plugins found! Check your VLC installation.
    I tried using plugins provided with vlc standard version installed using apt-get, copied plugins folder to every possible location. Providing plugins path and so on. No luck so far. Still the same error.

    Any ideas?

  13. I got it fixed, problem was that I haven't done "make install" after downloading:) Linux compilation stuff is new to me:)
