I did the development on a stock Ubuntu 12.04 box, so I'm assuming
it's using the libzvbi that the distro provides (as opposed to the one
in contrib).

Is this just a case of reconfiguring the VLC contribs to have libzvbi
include V4L support?  Or are you suggesting that is not viable and
thus the dependency is a show-stopper for inclusion?

Any guidance you can offer would be greatly appreciated.  I hadn't
played with anything in contribs, so I would need to better understand
how to use that version of libzvbi (do I just need to uninstall the
version provided by the distro to get the contrib version at
