Module: hal
Type Services discovery
First VLC version 0.8.2
Last VLC version 1.1.13
Operating system(s) Linux
Description HAL devices detection
Shortcut(s) (none)

This module was removed because it is no longer needed; it was used on *nix systems before the advent of udev.

It was removed with this note:

HAL is officially deprecated. The new udev discs module provide the same
functionality in VLC. Moreover, the plugin was waking up the CPU at
regular intervals. Last, InitDeviceValues seemed to cause problems with
wrong disc paths being saved to vlcrc for some people

Options

None.
