Compile VLC on BeOS
You need :
Compiling is usually done on a vanilla R5.0.3 install with gcc 2.95.3.
Building with older compilers won't work.
Building on a BONE-enabled install probably doesn't work at the moment.
Now you can compile vlc:
Get the source
Build external libs
We now need to build the 3rd party libs. For that, you will need to:
- cd to the source directory with your Terminal application.
- cd to extras/contrib/ subdir of VLC and execute
- Now execute
make src. This will download and compile all the required external libraries and programs that VLC media player needs (you need an internet connection, a fast one preferably).
Prepare the VLC build
Now we return to VLC itself. Go back to the top level VLC source directory. If you use Git (which you really should), then run
This will create configure and Makefiles for VLC media player (snapshots and releases already include this).
The next step is to configure, in the top level VLC source directory.
./configure --enable-debug --enable-sout --enable-httpd --enable-vlm --enable-dvdread --enable-dvdnav --enable-dvbpsi --enable-screen --enable-ogg --enable-mkv --enable-mad --enable-ffmpeg --enable-faad --enable-a52 --enable-flac --enable-libmpeg2 --enable-vorbis --enable-speex --enable-theora --enable-freetype --enable-fribidi --disable-skins2 --with-ffmpeg-mp3lame --with-ffmpeg-faac --with-ffmpeg-zlib --disable-x11 --disable-hal --disable-daap --disable-xvideo --disable-glx --disable-sdl --disable-wxwindows
After configure is finished, we can finally build VLC media player. A simple
make will do the trick.
