[vlc-devel] Compiling vlc

Trying to compile vlc on ubuntu 14.04 after checking out leads to:

% git clone git://git.videolan.org/vlc.git
% cd vlc
% ./bootstrap
% mkdir -p contrib/native
% cd contrib/native
% ../bootstrap
% make

After changing gettext dependency from 0.19.3 to 0.18.3 (hopefully not
breaking anything compiling works until all contrib/native
dependencies are compiled.

% cd ../..
% ./configure

leads to:
checking for CHROMAPRINT... yes
checking for protoc... no
checking for CHROMECAST... yes
configure: error: protoc compiler needed for chromecast was not found
