How to build the framework

You have two options:

One-click build

Terminal build

$ cd extras/contrib && ./bootstrap && make && cd ../.. && ./bootstrap &&./configure && make && cd extra/MacOSX/Framework && make

The basics

The code should speak by itslef

  // Set up a videoView by hand. You can also do that in the nib file
   videoView = [[VLCVideoView alloc] initWithFrame:[[window contentView] bounds]];
   [[window contentView] addSubview:videoView];
   [videoView setAutoresizingMask: NSViewHeightSizable|NSViewWidthSizable];
   // Init the player object
   player = [[VLCMediaPlayer alloc] initWithVideoView:videoView];
   [player setMedia:[VLCMedia mediaWithPath:@"/to/my/movie"]];
   [player play];

Sample code

You should be able to find sample code in:

  • Framework/Example: This is the folder that contains the VLC.framework basics usage.
  • extras/MacOSX/VLC_app: This is the VLC application that uses the framework intensivly, this is much more advanced.
