I think it is not correct actually,

VLCRepeatMode is defined both as an enum and as a NSInteger.

I don't know for x86/x86_64 but enums can have a different size
depending on their range, an enum that goes from 0 to 255 only could
have a storage size of char.

I think the fix would be to remove the name from the enum and keep the

That way the storage size is always constant, but otoh we lose range
checking (to see if a certain value is defined inside the enum)
