I'll be watching this as I've always used the WinCE port for my Dell Axim x3 Windows Mobile 2003 device. Good luck ;)

I too will be keeping an eye on this project. I can't get the old port to run at all on my WM2003SE iPaq - it just does nothing. It's a shame really. I absolutely need a video player that does OGG Theora!

Thank you, I'll work hard to get a working version soon :) --Geal 13:56, 2 June 2008 (CEST)


Midterm evaluations have come and gone. Any progress to report? KevinLange 21:59, 16 July 2008 (CEST)

Now the LibVLC compiles without any problem, and I'm adding plugins. I could play some music on my phone, it's beginning to work :) For now, I work on the interface, but I'm not really changing the look and feel. That will be for the end of the summer. I'll soon add the video output, and then, I may need some intensive testing :) --Geal 10:54, 23 July 2008 (CEST)

Anything new? It's almost final evaluation time. KevinLange 21:16, 20 August 2008 (CEST)

I have timing issues: it doesn't play more than a few seconds. There are recents commits to the main tree that may fix this bug, but I didn't update my tree yet. You can see what external libs were ported on Contrib_Status. Many others will come :) VLC on WinCE won't be released this week, and I don't think this will be for next release. But I'll make test binaries when this timing bug will be fixed, and then, patches and bug reports will be welcomed :) I'm sorry I didn't finish it in time... I'll go on contributing to VLC, so I won't drop my project right now! --Geal 10:29, 26 August 2008 (CEST)

Anything new?

After using the new 0.9.2 of the regular VLC, I have to ask: For the interface, why not write one with QT? QT is available for the Pocket PC in the form of QT Embedded. The same interface could also be used on the Familiar port of VLC.

And while I'm here, anything new? Anything you'd like help with (this is something I'd really like to see happen, and I have plenty of programming experience and the tools required to help out)? KevinLange 01:46, 21 September 2008 (CEST)

The Qt interface for WinCE could be a good idea, but I don't know anything about Qt... Feel free to do it ;)

Nothing really new about the WinCE port: I wait for some big changes of LibVLC to be done, to adapt my code. And I've been a bit busy with the Windows version.

You can try to build it by reading the WinCECompile page. It can really help me to improve the port, because I did some ugly things to make it compile, and I don't remember everything I did :P --Geal 12:30, 22 September 2008 (CEST)
