What makes it 'not usable' ?

Have the bugs been reported upstream ?

What is your plan wrt distributions?
They will either patch live555 either patch VLC to remove this check,
and without details I guess they'll patch VLC thus rendering this
check useless.

For now the only side effect of this check is that (Debian) buildbot is
broken; should we use --disable-live555 to be able to check the other
code and thus stop checking live555 module?
