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

I understand. I have found references to others using jvlc with 1.1 on the vlc forum so I am hopefull 1.1 and java can work together. I plan to setup a simple test in eclipse and contact the developers working with 1.1 and jvlc to find out what they had to change in the jvlc code. In one case someone went from 1.0.3 to 1.1 and got at least further than I did but then I am just starting to look at porting to 1.1.

I am not giving up because I want 1.1 with windows and Ubuntu to work for me. Just not going to be real easy maybe.

Again thanks for the feedback.

I think you're wasting your time. Libvlc 1.0 has many known bugs, some of
which deadlock or crash. Most importantly there is a known deadlock case
when stopping playback (which pretty much every app does).

And then, if people keep on using the previous version, we never get wide
testing for the current version, so we never get to fix it.
