Hi all,

new user (of vlc), long time programmer, with occassional spare time.

Just gave vlc a try. compiled everything from srpms on my RHEL3 system. Tried
first Dag's sources (videolan-client-0.8.1-1), and then the vlc-0.8.1-2 src.rpm
from (I believe) a vlc mirror. (essentially the same libraries, though I
noticed that there was a different few library dependencies in the vlc one).

essentially both are the same, and it's quite nice.

one minor disappointment. DVD nagigation. I searched the archives, and one mail
from Aug 2001 (http://www.via.ecp.fr/via/ml/vlc/2001-08/msg00109.html)
suggested that this was "planned for the near future". and another
(http://www.via.ecp.fr/via/ml/vlc/2001-08/msg00113.html) suggested that
vlc would "probably use the Ogle project's libdvdread, which does
full DVD navigation".

What's the status of this effort ?

I have some occassional free time. Long time programmer, great at debugging,
and willing to pitch in as and where I can.

best rgds,


   You can release software that's good, software that's inexpensive, or
   software that's available on time.  You can usually release software
   that has 2 of these 3 attributes -- but not all 3.
