Hi Pierre -- Yeah, that works fine for me, but the resulting build  
doesn't actually play video everywhere (if i build on my MBP it plays  
on my MBP but not on a Mini or an Air. If I build on the Mini, it  
plays on the Mini and my MBP, but not the Air). This leads me to  
believe it's a matter of getting the right options passed into ./ 
configure. Do you happen to know what parameters are used to ./ 
configure the official VLC.app build?
