Building VLMC from source

This wiki page has information on building VideoLAN Movie Creator, VLMC from source. VLMC (VideoLAN Movie Creator) is a free video editing software, offering features to realize semi-professional quality movies, but with the aim to stays simple and user-friendly.


VLMC requires Qt(4.5+), C++ compiler and libVLC.

To install Qt, refer:

To install libVLC, you are required to compile VLC

To get the current source of VLC player, refer:

For information on using Git, refer:

For Information on generic compilation of VLC, refer:

In case you are interested in mailing list, goto:

We have two VLMC mailing lists:

 * vlmc-announce: Official announcements (release, events, ...)
 * vlmc-devel: Developers discussions

Getting the code

You can fetch the current VLMC working tree using Git:

 git clone git://

Do the same for VLC (as described in

 git clone git://

Compiling VLMC

Following is the cleanest way of compiling VLMC (commands for *nix OS)

1. Compile and install libVLC, libVLC is required by VLMC, for example:

 cd path_to_vlc_src
 sudo make install

2. Compile VLMC:

 cd path_to_vlmc_src
 cmake .

3. Run VLMC:


Now, start hacking ;-)
