Build the framework

  • open ./vlc/projects/macosx/framework/VLCKit.xcodeproj
  • make sure the VLCKit target is selected
  • rightclick on target and build

this should autatically build vlc itself at the same time in projects/macosx/framework/build/vlc_build_dir

Basic usage in your application

The code should speak by itself

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