To develop VLC for iOS, you need:
- OS X 10.10 Yosemite (or later)
- Latest Xcode version (version 6 works so far)
- A correct shell (we recommend iTerm2 and zsh)
- CocoaPods (for dependency management)
Get the source
Install the dependencies
Wait, and grab a coffee.
Open the VLC.xcworkspace and run!
Open the .xcworkspace (not .xcodeproj) in Xcode and click on Run.
Buliding release version needs code signing
Before running simulator in Xcode, run .sh with -s first; Before running iphoneos in Xcode, run .sh without -s first.
Please see Git#Submitting_patches on how to send patches...
The first version of this howto was written by jb on 18 July 2013.
The old version of the app can be compiled using this howto.
