It's been bugging me a long time that every time I start the MacOS
build of VLC, it freezes the entire system for 10 seconds before I can
do anything. So I finally whipped out gdb and try to find out why. I
found that the problem is the call to FindCodec() in voutqt.m. It
appears that it hangs while looking for some shared libraries. I did a
before and after snapshot of list of shlibs loaded in gdb, and I
narrowed it down to:
I also did a ktrace, but I couldn't find any syscall that took that
long to process (the max was 0.04 seconds, opening AGL).
I don't know QuickTime very well, so I thought I'll ask how does the
codecs in VLC gets hooked up to QuickTime? The file I'm using is an
xvid, and it looks like libavcodec gets directly linked into VLC. How
does FindCodec gets to the xvid decoder in VLC?
