[vlc-devel] VLC for Mac 64bit, the first step

Hello guys,
I just uploaded a contrib-package compiled for Darwin x86_64 to Ganesh. It
is automatically used by "make bin" on Darwin 10 and can easily be used on
Darwin 9, too, if you edit config.mak after bootstrapping (just change the
ARCH variable from "i386" to "x86_64"). The package only lacks MMX support
in goom and any support for SDL (their port to Cocoa will be part of their
1.3 release - however, it isn't complete yet).

However, this is just the first step. VLC.app won't compile in 64bit mode
for now. All Carbon code will need to be replaced with the cocoa equivalent,
so the QTKit input, the AUHAL aout and the OS X interface (including the OS
X - specific OpenGL vout) won't be available for now. Thus, this adaptation
will mostly need to wait until we branch VLC 1.1.

So, feel free to play around, if you are bored ;-)

Best regards,
