`make distcheck` is broken if there is no internet connection for  
sure. I know that some of us doesn't agree to put some samples in the  
source git tree. It does also make sense I think.

Currently the proposition is to put core samples (basically a video  
and a file with meta data) that don't exceed 500Ko in some place in  
the tree.

I do propose to create a new git-submodule that would hold the samples  
files needed. Hence we'll keep a separation between sources and samples.

Basically that mean, we create a samples.git in git.v.o and add:
[submodule "samples"]
	path = test/samples
	url = git://git.videolan.org/samples.git

to vlc/.gitmodules

Is that solution more appropriate and fulfill both concern?
