[vlc-devel] Default video output for Linux/Ubuntu

Good question but the first issue is the creation of an instance of vlc library via jna is crashing so the rest of the code that would use say the jna interface to mediaplayer is not even called.

Right now I will go back to 1.0.6 for windows and find 1.0.5 or 1.0.6 so's somewhere I can package for distribution. There is a newer version of ubuntu coming out soon and I will see what they have available for vlc download. I did find a site that claimed to have 1.0.5 vlc for Ubuntu but when I downloaded it turned out to be the source and not a build with the so's.

I will start to look at java interface support for 1.1 but I suspect there is none.

Best Regards,

Were they even ported to 1.1 at all?
The libvlc 1.1 binary interface is not backward-compatible.
