[vlc-devel] Macosx 64 bit npapi plugin help

Late last year Jean-Baptiste very kindly put together an almost working
vlc npapi plugin for Mac osx platform for me to test, but there are a
couple of outstanding issues which I would like help in resolving.
The most important is that when playing SD programmes from a multicast
source all the programmes are shown as 4:3 even though the MPEG header
says it should be 16:9. These streams play at 16:9 using the standard
VLC application on my mac, pc and all other platforms as far as I can
tell. HD streams are rendered correctly in16:9.
I have tried building the current git version
(git://git.videolan.org/npapi-vlc.git) on a Macbook running10.7.5, using
the shell script in extras/macosx/build-vlc.sh.
As far as I can tell, this builds the components but when I copy the
npapi/VLC Plusgin.plugin/ to /Library/Internet Plugins directory it
fails to run when I try to play a multicast stream, I just get a process
running at 100% and a black screen. The version that JB provided runs,
but has the above problems. I am using the plugin in Safari 6.0.3.
Questions (from someone who is not an experienced Macosx developer, so
apologies if I've missed something obvious)
Am I using the correct build procedure?
Is the git version I have got working for others on 64 bit Macs?
Is there another git repository I should be using?
Any help would be appreciated.
