Installing VLC Media Player under FreeBSD

Make sure you have upto date Ports collection or Just CVSup your Ports.Once you have your ports collection up to date.

cd /usr/ports
cd /usr/ports/multimedia/vlc
make install clean

VLC compiles correctly from ports, but the spanish interface (I don't know about the rest) gets sort of screwed up.

I got a spanish vlc.mo file from a previous installation that works correctly with the "20051102 Janus Snapshot". I will check the other languages and place more links if necessary.

To use the vlc.mo file provided here, you need to download it and then (as root), move it to the following location:

"/usr/X11R6/share/locale/{Your Language abbreviation here}/LC_MESSAGES/vlc.mo"

So in the case of the spanish locale file, I would use the following command

mv /downloads/vlc.mo /usr/X11R6/share/locale/es/LC_MESSAGES/vlc.mo

to overwrite the erroneous vlc.mo file.
