Vlc-0.8.6a version, Redhat Linux
I downloaded, than configure/make/make install commands to install VLC.

Using the command " vlc -vvv --no-plugins-cache --list | grep  a52 ", i got
reference to a52 as follows,

a52 A/52 parser
a52 A/52 audio packetizer
a52sys Raw A/52 demuxer
a52tospdif Audio filter for A/52->S/PDIF encapsulation

I have attached a file containing my complete log messages that i am getting
along with this mail.

Warm Regards,
