   An OS/2 user (and developer) who wants to remain anonymous already
contacted me a few months ago about vlc and OS/2. I installed OS/2
to start having a look at it, but it was a real pain and I must have
screwed it because now the poor little beast doesn't even boot anymore.

   Using Odin isn't probably the best approach. vlc is well designed,
shipped with source code, and modular enough to get ported by someone
with a little OS/2 knowledge.

   Several people on the vlc-devel mailing-list, including me, can
definitely help on this topic. First step to my mind is to port at least
include/threads.h and include/mtime.h and try to compile the vlc core,
without even plugin support, then we can think about DVD input (raw
ATAPI and/or SCSI commands will be needed).
