So I would like to ask you to test a 2.2 nightly build, and file a bug report per problem you see, with information to reproduce, on our bug tracker.

I joined this list a few years ago when I was actively working on fixing problems like this myself, but I’ve had some trouble since upgrading to Xcode 5 getting VLC to build properly on Mavericks. More on-topic for this list, is that working yet? If so, is there documentation somewhere about it? The page at https://wiki.videolan.org/OSXCompile/ still refers to OSX 10.5/10.6 and Xcode 3/4, both of which are pretty old at this point.

The wiki page is quite up to date, and compilation on Mavericks works fine as long as you use the prebuilt contribs (x86_64-apple-darwin10
). For UI-related changes (xib), we still have Xcode 3 around, though. If you have any compilation problems feel free to ask me privately or on IRC - we will happily help you on that.

Thanks, I will take a look later.

With best regards,
