VLC Devel

VLC media player is a very fast changing and ever evolving project.

It is very important to keep up to date with the latest developments. Therefore we advise everyone who makes changes to the VLC sourcecode, to sign up with the vlc-devel mailing-list so you can keep up with the latest changes and developments.

Please try to keep to our code conventions. They are very simple and help to keep all code readable. When you write new stuff, especially core stuff (in the "src" or "include" folders), please comment it heavily or add doxygen documentation for your sources.


Start by building VLC and use Git to get the full source code.

Before you start be sure to read the HACKING file in the main VLC source directory.

Before sending a patch be sure to read Sending Patch. To correctly report a bug see Report bugs.
